I did buy the freshness and the youth in this world of industries dying.

This is well-trod territory in 2020, explored richly in any number of TV shows and films, and the choice to center Run This Town on Millennial malaise is an odd one.

March 6, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

An involving but stretched-thin journo procedural.

March 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Smart, ambitious and impressive, "Run This Town" is the best kind of feature directing debut, a film that entertains and makes you look forward to what will come next.
