8/10 Cruella (2021) Katrina Olson This film takes the audience on twists and turns leading to an unexpected place. But a place where it is quite obvious there will be sequels to spawn from Cruella's character. I highly recommend this film. EDIT

7.5/10 Crisis (2021) Katrina Olson I think the film is well made, it strikes a nerve in society right now about corruption in pharmaceuticals that all play into the "war on drugs" in the streets. This is a legitimate crisis in our society in North America. EDIT

8.5/10 Shoot to Marry (2020) Katrina Olson This documentary is extremely intimate. Three quarters of this film were uncomfortable to watch... You are kind grossed out by what's happening but not enough to turn it off because you need to see how it is going to end. EDIT
