So many artists feel that if they could just get the right mentor their career success would finally reflect their level of passion. The Mentor takes this idea and runs with it in a very entertaining way. It's full of twists and turns, it's fun to watch, and it has an added level of authenticity because of its location in Oakland, CA. Some solid acting by the leads and great filmmaking by the director all add up to an indie you'll be glad you watched.
Ever had been fed up with your boss? Ever talked to your workmates about what a jerk your boss was and felt like you were trapped? Then this film is for you. A satire based on the fantasy of finally giving jerks what they deserve, A Less In Cruelty does it with great humor and over the top performances that match its satiracle tone. You couldn't get away with pushing boundaries in a studio film like this does, and that's why those of us who love indies will love this film. Great fun if you like a good dark comedy.
If you wish you could watch A Star is Born with your entire family, you've found the right movie. Sweet Sunshine is a sweet story about the double edged sword of newfound fame, and the faith that it takes to navigate it. The production value is excellent as is the message. Very strong indie.
If you're the type who enjoys indie horror movies, you'll love this movie! It's the falls in the "new house" sub genre horror film- a family moves into a house and weird stuff happens- think Poltergeist or Paranormal Activity. This type of movie freaks me out the most, I think- the idea of being trapped in your house with something terrible. While it's an indie, the production value is outstanding.
What a beautiful film. It's hard to find a documentary that's at once inspiring and lyrical, but Breathe Breana achieves both. Breana is such an inspiration- she's unstoppable, and reminds us to go beyond our reasons for not following our dreams. It's so uplifting when filmmakers choose to focus their artistry on stories that can lift their audience, and this is as about as fine an example of that kind of craft that can be found. Hats off to the creators, and hats off to Breana. Thanks for sharing her story!
