Their latest fusion of science fiction, character drama, dark comedy, and overwhelming paranoia, "Something in the Dirt," feels like their most personal film.

It's a little too long at 115 minutes, but there's a lot to like here from a pair of filmmakers who I'm happy to see still taking crazy risks when it comes to storytelling and form.

It's fitting that the result should be dedicated to "making movies with your friends," as it says in the end credits. For first-timers and fans alike, it can feel like watching your buddies' latest project.

Something in the Dirt impressively unfurls an ambitious feature from a simple idea, leaving you with a lot to chew on long after the credits roll.

January 24, 2022 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Even as the flow of the movie approaches incoherence, then rushes headlong past it, a redeeming strain of brotherly camaraderie takes root, even amid constant sniping and bitching.

January 24, 2022 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

"Something in the Dirt" functions as a disturbing and acerbically comedic riddle of a movie where finding the answers is a secondary, mostly unfruitful goal.
