My Friend Coffin Joe
Maniac. Pioneer. Debaser. Maverick. Monster. Hero. Part shaman, part provocateur, part surrealist nightmare, Coffin Joe is the genre-shredding legend of Brazilian horror. But to Marcelo Colaiacovo, he is José Mojica Marins: his friend and co-creator of the new short "Heart of Darkness."

How to Kill a Sacred Deer

When, as in The Killing of a Sacred Deer, that divine wrath comes from Barry Keoghan as a reserved but determined teenager, then a blindly arbitrary cosmos may seem preferable.

Your Weekend in Film
Frankly, everything is like an iceberg – the part that you can see is just the tip of the whole. Come to the theatre and witness this notion in play with these new releases.

Your Weekend in Film
Be proud, my people: There are precious few species out there that are as bold, as diverse, and as passionate as humans. This week’s new releases definitely give merit to the point, not to mention aligning perfectly with the humanist themes that our last week’s pick, Faces Places, taps into.

DVDanger: Brawl in Cell Block 99
There's an old saying: Big dogs don't need to bark. Truth is, the biggest dogs try to curl up the smallest. That may be why Vince Vaughn, all six-foot five of him, looks like he's squeezing himself into the corner of a hotel couch, sipping a tea as he softly talks about the extreme brutality of prison flick Brawl in Cell Block 99.
