Review: Fausto

A work of contemplative art that packs its small, unassuming, and intimately composed frame to bursting with unanswerable questions about man’s place in the universe, Canadian filmmaker Andrea Bussmann’s avant garde opus Fausto uses tried and tested oral and literary storytelling traditions in an effort to get closer to the ethereal and sublime.

Review: Pet Sematary

Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer’s skillful, spooky, and ultimately superfluous updating of Pet Sematary is a film that recycles about 85% of its big screen predecessor wholesale with modest improvements here and there and a respectable reverence for its source material.

Review: Shazam!

If you’re fatigued by the glut superhero movies (and box office numbers would suggest that you’d be in the minority of the filmgoing population if you were), Shazam!, the latest entry into the expanding and changing DC universe, won’t hold much appeal. If, however, you’re either a casual or ardent fan of all things caped and powerful, Shazam! is a solidly entertaining and frequently very funny addition to the canon.
