Review: Mandibles

There are very few people in the industry quite like Quentin Dupieux who has made a career out of telling wholly original stories unlike anything else out there. From “Rubber,” a movie about a serial killer tire, to “Deerskin,” a film about a man who buys a deerskin jacket that convinces him that he should be the only one in […]

CFF Review: Timothy Covell’s ‘Blood Conscious’

Timothy Covell’s “Blood Conscious” is a brilliantly executed, cerebral exercise in managing paranoia that within the first few minutes has the characters juggling with who they can trust, what’s actually going on, and deciphering how they’re going to get out of this situation without being killed or suffering an even worse fate. It’s a film that submerges the viewer in […]

CFF Review: Jacob Gentry’s ‘Broadcast Signal Intrusion’

Presenting the viewer with a mesmerizingly layered narrative that’s brought to life by great performances, Jacob Gentry’s “Broadcast Signal Intrusion” is a deeply unsettling and highly engaging thriller that’ll have you completely engrossed in it’s mystery by the end of the first act.

CFF Review: Peter Collins Campbell’s ‘DimLand’

Peter Collins Campbell’s darkly magical romantic drama “DimLand” is an absolutely remarkable film that whisks the viewer away to a cabin in the woods alongside a young woman named Brynn and her boyfriend Laika, who are looking to escape their lives for a little while. Little do they know that shortly after arriving they’ll encounter a mysterious stranger from Brynn’s […]

CFF Review: Isaac Rathe’s ‘Duel on the River’

This movie is budget filmmaking at it’s finest: it’s rough, violent, cheesy at times, and just plain fun to watch! Isaac Rathé’s “Duel on the River” is an aptly titled love letter to Steven Spielberg’s debut classic “Duel” that, as you’d expect, takes the stress-inducing chase from the open road to the open water. Made entirely during the pandemic as a […]

CFF Review: Sasha Voronov’s ‘Mom, I Befriended Ghosts’

There’s nothing wrong with a film that ambiguously meanders a bit more than it needs to if it adds something to the characterization or overall experience the filmmakers are trying to sell. After rolling credits on Sasha Voronov’s “Mom, I Befriended Ghosts” though, it’s clear that it doesn’t always work when that ambiguous meandering is really all there was to […]

CFF Review: Christopher Alender’s ‘The Old Ways’

Christopher Alender’s “The Old Ways” is hands down one of the most well-made, refreshing, and genuinely disturbing possession films of recent years, in almost every imaginable way. The filmmakers manage to set the hooks in the viewer very early on with an interesting premise that’s highly engaging from the minute it begins due to masterful cinematography, a slew of great […]

CFF Review: Robert G. Putka’s ‘Mister Limbo’

A meandering yet meaningful exploration of what it means to be “a good person” in a world filled with so much moral grey area, Robert G. Putka’s “Mister Limbo” is a heartfelt mumblecore dramedy set in a surreal desert wasteland. Though it’s setting is fairly fantastical it doesn’t rely on visual effects or lean too heavily on the gimmick of […]

CFF Review: Onur Tukel’s ‘Scenes From an Empty Church’

Set within the confines of the space in and directly outside of a locked-down Catholic church in NYC during the height of the COVID pandemic, Onur Tukel’s spiritually charged drama “Scenes from an Empty Church” is a film that shines a light on the ways we’ve all coped with the trauma of our recent isolation in different ways. Unfortunately it’s […]
