Lynn Shelton

Prince Avalanche Movie

Prince Avalanche

The claims that David Gordon Green is going back to his older days, where films like George Washington and All The Real Girls had him heralded as America’s Next Great Director, isn’t necessarily true.

Touchy Feely Movie

Touchy Feely

Lynn Shelton’s Touchy Feely has, so far, gathered mixed reviews and unfortunately I got to see why. I went into the film very open minded and came away feeling confused and largely disappointed.

My ears perk up every time I hear the name Mark Duplass. It seems like he has really exploded as of late, whether it be directing or acting he is everywhere and I am not complaining. The last film he directed, Jeff Who Lives At Home, was highly reviewed by us. Read More
Humpday Movie

Humpday

While the basic premise behind Humpday is simple and somewhat idiotic, the film is far from it. This indie comedy won the John Cassavetes Award at 2010 Independent Spirit Awards. It also won the Special Jury Prize and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. And rightfully so. Read More
