Review: BROS, Make Your Own Love Story

Bros is a something of an atypical film for ScreenAnarchy to cover. But then again, we've never seen a film quite like Bros. It's a mainstream, queer, romantic comedy, made by the queer community, with the queer community, and for...

Review: BARBARIAN, Hell Really Is Other Airbnb People

Review: SAMARITAN, A Sly Stallone Superhero Stumble

Hitting the three-quarter-century mark usually means a retirement home, a nursing facility, or if you’re lucky to be blessed with relatively good health and savings to match, living in a gated community in Arizona or Florida. For Sylvester Stallone, however,...

Review: THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING, Djinn and Tonic

Naomi Watts in GOODNIGHT MOMMY Trailer: Our Little Secret

Review: THE SANDMAN, Neil Gaiman's Magnum Opus Gets the Streaming Treatment It Deserves

Between 1989 and 1996, a then little-known, British-born writer, Neil Gaiman (Stardust, Good Omens, American Gods), wrote what many justifiably consider an unequalled masterpiece of serialized comic-book storytelling and a standard-resetting, genre-redefining work of dark fantasy, The Sandman.
