    Sarajevo's Kinoscope Sidebar Focuses on the Bold and Experimental

    Since its launch in 2012, the Sarajevo Film Festival’s Kinoscope sidebar has presented challenging, experimental and genre-bending titles from around the globe. This year’s lineup includes an eclectic showcase of feature and documentary works from mostly young directors, half of them women, including Nicolas Pesce’s U.S. thriller “Piercing”; Dominga Sotomayor’s “Too Late to Die Young”; Hélène Cattet and [...]

    Film Review: 'Breaking and Exiting'

    “Breaking and Exiting” is the first directorial feature for actor Peter Facinilli, and first produced screenplay for actor-turned-producer/star Jordan Hinson.

    Film Review: 'The Little Mermaid'

    “There are no cheap parlor tricks here!” growls Locke (Armando Gutierrez), the cloak-swirling, goatee-twitching villain of Blake Harris and Chris Bouchard’s “The Little Mermaid,” providing such an easy way in for the disgruntled reviewer (and few will be gruntled) that it almost feels like a trap. Creaky visual effects, slapdash plotting and a script drunk on [...]

    Film Review: 'Surfer'

    There is no excuse for “Surfer,” an abysmally amateurish vanity production best described as a total wipeout. Produced, written and directed by Douglas Burke, a USC physics professor who would be well-advised not to  quit his day job, it has something to do with the fulminations of a pontificating spirit who is given temporary corporeality, [...]
