Review: Luce

Although it might be biting off more than it can convincingly chew in a single sitting, the smartly written and exceptionally acted drama Luce is great examination of the muddy nature of modern discourse, human selfishness, race, and societal expectations, among other things.

Review: Ma

Ma, a silly B-movie thriller from prestige picture director Tate Taylor (The Help, Get On Up) and starring Octavia Spencer as a murderous middle aged woman terrorizing a group of hard partying teens, is an oddly entertaining film with enough good ideas and basic storytelling chops to paper over the fact that it’s all a bit flimsy and obvious upon closer scrutiny.
