Lord Save Us from Your Followers

The flaw with Lord Save Us from Your Followers is ultimately the same flaw of any exclusively political or religious documentary in that it is mostly preaching to the choir.

Murder.com

This has a cinematic equivalent to a romance novella – you may find yourself absorbed into its world of thinly drawn characters and cautionary warnings against escaping the boundaries of small town life.

Taxidermia

Taxidermia is concerned primarily with its striking visuals, which are at once beautiful and disturbing.

This brings an almost Hitchcockian level of suspense to the torture-porn subgenre of horror, and crucially makes the audience care more about what will happen rather than how it will happen.

Runaway

From a purely technical standpoint, Runaway is flawless -- well acted, appropriately paced and shot beautifully. The film’s narrative leaves much to be desired, however.
