Documentary 'Deliver Us' observes a present-day Sicilian exorcist 20.10.2017 LA Times: Commentary

Although Federica Di Giacomo’s documentary “Deliver Us” is being released during the Halloween season, this film about real-life Catholic exorcisms doesn’t count as a horror movie — except maybe to viewers who get weirded out by human despair or irrational religious fervor.

The primary subject...

'The Strange Ones' is an odyssey and a mystery 20.10.2017 LA Times: Commentary

“The Strange Ones” is a mysterious puzzle box of a film, anchored by a quietly mesmerizing performance by James Freedson-Jackson as a young boy on the road with an older companion. A bearded and bulked-up Alex Pettyfer is nearly unrecognizable as his traveling buddy, whom we’re never sure is a...

'Killing Gunther' is an amusing sendup of action flicks — and Arnold is a hoot 20.10.2017 LA Times: Commentary

Keep your expectations low and you could do far worse, comedy-wise, than “Killing Gunther,” an amusing if dispensable mockumentary from former “Saturday Night Live” funnyman Taran Killam, who wrote, directed and stars.

Killam plays elite contract killer — and snappy dresser — Blake, who hires a...

Korean historical war drama 'The Fortress' portrays and requires fortitude 20.10.2017 LA Times: Commentary

Hwang Dong-hyuk’s South Korean historical epic “The Fortress,” a grim look back at the infamous 1636 siege of a mountain stronghold, is so evocative that by the end viewers may be as cold and hungry as the movie’s cast of courtiers.

Based on Kim Hoon’s novel “Namhansanseong,” “The Fortress” covers...

'Tragedy Girls,' when mean girls turn deadly mean ... but still look good on Instagram 20.10.2017 LA Times: Commentary

Pitched as a “Heathers” for the Instagram age, Tyler MacIntyre’s “Tragedy Girls” lacks the satirical bite and subversive weight of that 1988 cult classic. But the movie’s central idea and bright young cast are so good that some of its shallowness is forgivable.

Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra...

Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman endure a crucible of suffering in 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' 20.10.2017 LA Times: Commentary

Animal corpses tend to pile up with alarming regularity in the films of Yorgos Lanthimos — just ask the cat in “Dogtooth,” or the dog in “The Lobster.” (You can’t, sorry. They’re dead.) So imagine my surprise that no antlered beasts are slaughtered in “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” a lightly blood-spattered...

Michael Fassbender won't melt your heart in the dreadfully incoherent thriller 'The Snowman' 20.10.2017 LA Times: Commentary

In “The Snowman,” a wretched waste of time and talent from the Swedish director Tomas Alfredson (“Let the Right One In”), two detectives track a serial killer who likes to hack up women’s bodies and then scatter the pieces all over: a head here, a limb there. The movie, perhaps subscribing to the...
