The Dirties July 20th, 9:50pm
An authentic perspective on bullying that is both infectiously amusing and unavoidably tragic, culminating in a final act that will twist your guts in discomfort. It's ballsy to go the places Matt Johnson's debut feature does, and ballsier still to use comedy to take the journey, but the film earns its trajectory with both nuance and sensitivity. The Dirties is an all to real horror film that deserves all the accolades and hype it received at Slamdance, where it took home the Grand Prize. (Peter Kuplowsky)
