  • A brutal but thoughtful film invoking subtle social allegory, "Marseilles" demonstrates both the durability and elasticity of the genre.

    September 13, 2018 | Full Review…

    September 6, 2018 | Full Review…
  • While there are gunfights and everything concludes with a big shoot-out, the complexity of the situation and the murkiness of Tau's quest for redemption are anything but standard-order fare for a Western.

    September 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • What happens in this neo-western isn't dictated by the tried and true themes the classic westerns but by the films themselves.
