Transpecos - Movie Review

Transpecos - Movie ReviewThe border.  Joni Mitchell sang about it.  Cormac McCarthy’s prose is filled with its beauty.  As a nation, we are obsessed with its divide.  For Austin filmmaker Greg Kwedar, borders are to be explored because, at the end of a very long day, they define us.  His film, Transpecos, ...

Sausage Party - Movie Review

Sausage Party - Movie ReviewEat your heart out, Tex Avery.  The cartoon spoof to end all others has arrived.   Sausage Party, while often crass, is a banging affair.  It’s safe to say that – in an animated war against humans – processed meat products win in the end.  The highs of the movie might not be  ...

Edge of Winter - Movie Review

Edge of Winter - Movie ReviewA very simple story is at the center of Edge of Winter.  It is deceptively modest but loaded with gut-wrenching consequences.  Of course, we don’t really get to see the results of the final action play out on-screen as two boys (Tom Holland and Percy Hynes witness the...

Free State of Jones - Movie Review

Free State of Jones - Movie ReviewAs gangly and unstable as a newborn colt, Free State of Jones is the well-intentioned but ultimately heavy-handed and torturous story about a virtually unknown episode of American history, and an even lesser-known man.
