Debt-related stress has seldom seemed so darned entertaining.

Featuring an exciting climax in which Mia, who has gone looking for the missing Fin, plays a vitally important role, the film marks an impressive debut for its writer/director [Ruth Platt].

Somewhere in this stinging dialectic we viewers too are confronted and tested to the limits on the value of literature and learning in a deprived, often depraved society.

The film is an earnest, but artistically and socially limited effort.

August 13, 2020 | Full Review…

This Bulgarian offering is a maturely crafted, finely tuned and quietly profound drama that's not to be missed.

April 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As fascinating as it is to have all of these interesting concepts and philosophies explored so thoroughly in a genre movie, it can sometimes feel like sensory overload when we're also meant to stomach watching teenagers get impaled over and over.
