Review: SLASH, an Erotically Tinted Coming-of-Age Tale With a Lot of Heart

Explorative. Confusing. Transformative. Banal. Awkward. Who doesn’t remember his or her teenage years and the various ups and downs that characterize them? Cinematic history is not exactly short on narratives that stage the universal voyage of introspective youngsters who find...

Writer-Director Todd Rohal Talks THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM

HOFF 2011: THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM Review

Father Billy may be one of the least competent priests ever to wear the collar. Not because he's malicious. Not because he doesn't care. No, it's just that being a decent priest requires you to be an adult and Billy...

Sundance 2011: Todd Rohal's CATECHISM CATACLYSM Poster Makes A Statement.
