Rites of Spring

A well-seasoned thriller.


Horror

Rod Lott
For a quarter of a century, Rites of Spring tells us in its opening titles, teenage girls have gone missing, and their bodies never recovered. The two young women abducted from their car in the indie horror film’s first act are sure to be the latest. Sure enough, they’re soon hanging by their bound wrists in a dirty old barn.

Comes a Bright Day

All is not calm, all is not ‘Bright.’


Thriller

Rod Lott
London, jazz, neon-lit nights, a posh hotel, a heist, Imogen Poots: Comes a Bright Day has so many elements I love to see in the movies, yet they add up to such a minuscule amount of pleasure. It's like pouring your favorite bubbly beverage all the way to the top of a frosty glass, only to see that once the head has subsided, you're left with so little.

The family that bootlegs together, stays together.


Drama

Rod Lott
If John Hillcoat is setting out to build a directorial career on downbeat and depressing films, he's doing a fine job. From The Proposition and The Road — especially The Road — and now Lawless, bleakness is his bread and butter.

Their lips were sealed


CFN

Gazette staff
In a move seemingly plucked straight out of Joseph Heller’s classic novel, Catch- 22, Oklahoma State University officials decided the best way to protect victims of sexual assault was to not tell police about those incidents of sexual assault.

Dick Tracy

If you thought the movie looked good before, you don't know ‘Dick.’


Family

Rod Lott
Unlike Madonna, Dick Tracy has aged quite well. Although considered somewhat of a disappointment upon its summer of 1990 release, unfairly attached with Batman-level expectations, Warren Beatty's film actually is quite successful in achieving its goals, which is even more apparent now that it's made a long-overdue Blu-ray debut from Walt Disney Studios.
