Beyond the Black Rainbow

Once you go 'Black' ...


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Prepare to have your mind violated. Beyond the Black Rainbow hardly represents conventional storytelling, but the film is an absolute visual feast. Expect sensuous rather than sense, and open-minded movie lovers will be well-rewarded.

The Sorcerers

Boris Karloff gets hooked on a feeling.


Horror

Rod Lott
Boris Karloff plays one of The Sorcerers in an obscure 1967 thriller from Warner Archive. To be more precise, he’s Dr. Marcus Monserrat, “practitioner of medical hypnosis.” Yet what he and his wife (Catherine Lacey, The Lady Vanishes) really itch to try out is something more sinister.

The Master

‘Master’ful filmmaking, yet impenetrable for some.


Drama

Rod Lott
Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master is my least favorite of the director’s half-dozen films. That said, he has yet to make a bad one.

Curandero: Dawn of the Demon

From dusk till yawn.


Horror

Rod Lott
Eduardo Rodriguez has put three pictures in the can (including the upcoming Fright Night 2) since completing his directorial debut, Curandero: Dawn of the Demon, in 2005. Why, then, has it taken roughly eight years for Curandero to hit DVD? You got me; it’s not as if a lack of quality has stopped any flick before.

The East

For an indie thriller with as much intelligence as intrigue, just head to ‘The East.’ No compass needed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Across her three films as an actress/writer/producer (2011’s Another Earth, 2012’s Sound of My Voice and now The East), Brit Marling has explored the subjects of cults, symbols, duplicates, identity and family. Remarkably, despite these recurring themes and a tonal similarity, each experience seems anew.

Nonfiction

Rod Lott
If nothing else, Robert K. Elder’s The Best Film You’ve Never Seen lays to rest the decades-burning question on the world’s mind: What is up with John Woo and those doves?

The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh

Do not watch it while home alone.


Horror

Rod Lott
Many deadCENTER Film Festivals ago, one of the entries I was assigned to review in advance was the suspense short The Eyes of Edward James, the debut of writer/director Rodrigo Gudiño. It chilled me to the bone.
