Portrait of a Serial Monogamist
Good intentions aren't enough to overcome a clumsy execution in this light-hearted indie comedy.
Operation Avalanche (Sundance Review)
A captivating film about faking the Apollo 11 mission filled with innovative tricks and provocative ideas.
Succeeds on getting its message across with breathtaking visuals, but too many threads on a broad topic cools its effectiveness.
The film isn't nearly as essential as its source material, but it serves as a nice starting point for unfamiliar viewers.
Manson Family Vacation
Despite a few missteps along the way, Manson Family Vacation's fast pace keeps things moving towards its satisfying conclusion.
Not as funny as it wants to be nor dramatic enough when it needs to be.
With the lead cast as herself, this film is too personal to be engaging.
Distances itself from other flawed relationship narratives with excellent acting and a subversion of gender roles.
Fort Tilden is a bumpy ride at times, but it remains a charming expedition.
'Ardor' is an eco-friendly jungle western with a tedious narrative, predictable outcomes, confusing allusions, and an underwhelming conclusion.
