For a Good Time, Call... (2012)
"[VIDEO ESSAY] "M*A*S*H" ruthlessly satirizes the hypocritical U.S. military, and de facto the U.S. Government, for its systemic hypocrisies and arbitrary means of doling out Draconian punishments to friends and foe alike."
"[VIDEO ESSAY] "Lawless" never pretends to be anything more than a revved up period-piece gangster movie. If the movie takes a few too many liberties regarding the survivability of its invincible leading characters, the trespass is forgivable. "
