reviews

Only films I see in a theatre get a full-on review. Other titles seen on dvd and the like are covered in the “Reactions” section. My take on spoilers is that they pertain to the crux of the filmgoing experience – so while my posts aren’t what I’d call “spoilerific”, consider yourself warned.

All films are rated from one to four stars.

How does one tell the story of a god and make it interesting to us puny humans? How does one take an immortal spirit and an indestructible form and use it to spin a tale that will still captivate?
