4/5 100% Feral (2019) Feral covers a complicated and serious issue. It's clear that with a strong creative vision and a talented cast, films on a micro-budget can make a memorable impression. - Flickering Myth EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet Rendel: Dark Vengeance (2017) A badly executed and crude cartoon of an idea, that falls way short of the mark. - Flickering Myth EDIT

5/5 100% Videomannen (2018) Videoman is a beautiful story of fragility and support. The fact that Söderström has brought all this out in his debut feature is testament to how successful a pure filmic vision can be. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2/5 42% The Song of Sway Lake (2018) With scenes going from detective noir, to romance, to thriller, to dry comedy drama and then back again, it all becomes tiring, without a strong enough emotional depth to the characters to warrant much of the ruminative aspect - Flickering Myth EDIT
