MOVIE REVIEW: 4 Days (2017)

Adolfo Alix Jr.’s LGBT-themed 4 Days may be imperfect, but it’s exactly the reason why it reflects the authenticity of a flawed and complicated relationship between two lovers whose love screams for the need to be freed.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Beguiled (2017) [2 of 2]

A re-imagining of Don Siegel’s 1971 classic through the reversal of gender perspective, Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled delivers a chilling retelling of the blistering collision of the sexes through the female persona in a period thriller that’s so reserved, so quiet, but so powerfully effective.

Never seek to tell thy love,  Love that never told can be;  For the gentle wind does move  Silently, invisibly. I told my love, I told my love  I told her all my heart;  Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears, Ah! she doth depart. Soon as she was gone from me,  A traveller came by;  Silently, ...
