On the Count of Three: A Dark Comedy

Over a year after the film premiered during Sundance 2021, On the Count of Three is finally getting a theatrical release. This is not a light film by any means. In fact, this is a film that touches on mental illness and suicide. It’s a dark comedy even though there is nothing about suicide that is funny.

Sundance 2021: The World to Come

The World to Come–launching in Venice last year–is the third period lesbian romance drama to grace the screen in as many years.

Sundance 2020: Black Bear

TIFF 2018: First Man is Intense, IMAX required

Telling the story of Neil Armstrong and the mission to the moon, First Man is an intense ride and an IMAX screen should be considered required viewing. Starring as astronaut Neil Armstrong, veteran actor Ryan Gosling captures the very essence of his persona.  Armstrong lived with a public profile but he was very much a private person.  He saw this as just a job.  He got up every morning and went to work for NASA. …
