— Wind River

If you liked “Sicario” and “Hell or High Water,” please seek out “Wind River.” Screenwriter Taylor Sheridan also directs this time, telling the story of a murder mystery at a Wyoming Indian reservation.

What the Flick?! — The One I Love

What the Flick?! — Winter’s Tale

Colin Farrell stars in this batshit-crazy, time-travel romance which has an interior mythology that’s complicated and convoluted but never boring. We all enjoyed saying WTF? this week during our What the Flick?! review. — Twice Born

“Twice Born” takes the Bosnian conflict and tastelessly uses it as the backdrop for a melodramatic romance and a twisty mystery involving paternity. The ill-suited Penelope Cruz and Emile Hirsch struggle to convince us that they’re desperately in love with each other. My review. Read the review here
