Emerald Fennell’s pitch black directorial debut, Promising Young Woman, solely places the viewers who see it into the following groups: those who hate women and those who don’t, those who believe that sexual assault is a real problem around the world, and those who prefer to blame the victim and make excuses for the behavior […]
Frank Simon’s 1968 landmark documentary, The Queen, has finally been restored and released on Blu-ray, courtesy of Kino Classics. This insightful look into one of the first drag contests focuses on the efforts of a seasoned queen, named Flawless Sabrina, to rally up the contestants and prepare them to be seen in front of a […]
Flicker Alley and Nicolas Winding Refn have joined forces to bring the underseen gem, Spring Night, Summer Night, to glorious life on Blu-ray. Directed by J.L. Anderson, Spring Night, Summer Night could be summed up in this way: If Cassavetes directed an existential cinema verite hillbilly melodrama written by VC Andrews, it’d look and sound […]
Anthony Leroy and Josh Murphy are at it again with the sequel to their infamous 2016 short film, Dusty.

Yorgos Lanthimos’ first solo directorial debut, Kinetta, has finally arrived on Blu-ray, courtesy of Kino Lorber. While we can definitely see shades of the genius to come in his subsequent films here, Lanthimos completely alienated me with Kinetta. Basically, three strangers at a seaside resort who share mutual quirks and disturbing obsessions form a kind […]
Flicker Alley has brought the long-lost 1928 silent classic, The Last Warning, to Blu-ray! The film opens during a theatrical production, during which one of the main actors dies inexplicably and disappears.
