MALCOLM & MARIE Trailer: In Love, Madly

Films with only (or mostly only) two characters are pretty rare (think Sleuth, Old Joy, Gerry), and it's both an intriguing scenario for the audiene and difficult project for director, screenwriter, and actors. How do you keep attention with just...

Trailer for THE WANTING MARE, Dark and Golden Futuristic Fable of Love and Horses

Review: ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI, A Fateful Night With Four Fated Men

ScreenAnarchy Top Films of 2020

THE VIGIL: Never, Ever Stay in a Room with a Dead Body

I've always wondered why religion-based horror films have focused almost solely on Christianity (especially Catholicism). Several religiions around the world have stories, rituals, myths, and legends about things that are pretty scary (ancient gods, golems), and horror loves to find...

MINOR PREMISE Clip: Don't Drink and Put Yourself Under a Mind-Altering Machine

Review: SAINT FRANCES, A Bittersweet Summer of Wit and Heart

I've long held a pet theory that one of the reasons women (often) aren't fully prepared for menstruation, pregancy, childbirth, and the postpartum time, is because of how messy it is. If we knew (at least about the childbearing and...

Review: PROXIMA: The Call of the Stars, the Pull of the Earth

Montreal Nouveau 2020 Review: SAINT NARCISSE, Walk Through the Witchy Mirror

Review: HIS HOUSE, The Demons We Find, the Demons We Bring

Likely most of us have seen the harrowing footage of people making the perilous journey in tiny, run-down boats across the Mediterranean Sea, to reach the hoped-for safety of Europe (as they do crossing Central America to the USA, on...

Trailer for THE TWENTIETH CENTURY: Get Trippy with Canadian History

People like to think that, at least compared to our neighbours to the south, Canada is a wee bit dull, especially in the realm of politics and history (trust me, our history has a lot of bad moments). So when...
