The ending is savage, but the real surprise is in the performance of Butler.

April 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An intriguing and effective mystery, with some fine performances which help build the suspense. A flat script lets the film down, but there's more than enough to enjoy here.

March 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a very powerfully performed, intimate piece, perhaps inspired at some level by the classic adventure The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

March 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The movie is phenomenally well made and the three actors who fall apart on our watch suffer magnificently.
