Balada triste de trompeta (The Last Circus) (REVIEW)

Álex de la Iglesia’s “Balada triste de trompeta” (Sad Trumpet Ballad) is a manic blend of old school horror images, some twisted humor, grotesque, audacious violence, a sprinkling of sex, and a deep interest in reconciling Spain’s national past with the countries contemporary orientation. More commonly known in the states as “The Last Circus”, the film is an exemplary rendition of a how a film can set out to be purposefully “cult” in its execution and still stay true to those roots.

My Name is A by Anonymous (REVIEW)

“My Name is A by Anonymous” takes itself very seriously. And this “seriousness” is both the film’s curse and the best compliment I can give it. Directed and written by Shane Ryan, “My Name is A” presents an ere of sincerity and ambition that adeptly creates a keenly realized fragmented, lo-fi aesthetic in an effort to present a portrait of an angst ridden, troubled adolescent girl. And while Ryan creates some visually interesting moments these cannot help obscure the more glaring oversights and missteps we encounter.
