SUNDANCE 2014: PART THREE

The Raid Two Four

“Sampling A Better Tomorrow, Infernal Affairs and just about every other chop-socky gun-fu opus from the past twenty years, director Gareth Evans works like a DJ mixing mayhem instead of beats. The go-for-broke, more-is-more aesthetic is dizzying, and the film’s suspense comes not from the creaky storyline, but from wondering how it’s going to top itself next.” – EntertainmentTell, 02/05/2014

SUNDANCE 2014: PART ONE

Listen Up Philip 2

“Writer-director Perry’s arch, literate dialogue is peppered with gorgeous arias of insult, and certain exchanges made me laugh so hard I made a spectacle of myself. But Listen Up Philip finds melancholy in misanthropy, and by the time the epilogue unspooled, the funniest movie I saw at the festival had also become one of the saddest. This is a major work.” – EntertainmentTell, 02/03/2014
