Reviews by Kierston Drier

Movie Review: BARROW (2016)
This film is wonderfully balanced cinematographically, beautifully rendering scenes of dazzling brilliance without having the darker scenes feel out of place. The story is clean, precise and engaging, with thoughtful attention to detail. The character development is logical, well designed and tempered with flawed heroes, tragic backstories and strong performances.

Movie Review: TENGU: BIRDMAN OF THE MOUNTAINS (2016)

Tengu: Birdman of the Mountains,  is a film that will delight you with its symbology, its imagery and it’s excellent fight sequences, but it goes far beyond that. This film represents of genre-hybrid that should be welcomed into cinema with open arms. It is highly commendable thing to be able to successfully blend genres together, and this film is able to do that. With effortless ease a viewer can watch this film and find something in it to enjoy…

Watch all the Videos from the Oct. 2016 ACTION/CRIME Film Festival

WILDsound Festival

Highlights from the Thursday October 20, 2016 event.

The October 2016 ACTION/CRIME Festival was a major success. The sold out crowd loved every single film.

The theme of the festival was “Remember the Red Herring”.

In these genres (action, crime, mystery) especially, the “red herring” element always appears, like they did in all the movies presented this month. The audience thinks it’s one thing who is doing bad, but it is never is the case.

Definition of a Red Herring: Something, especially a clue, that is or is intended to be misleading or distracting in a novel, TV episode, story, or movie.

All 6 films this month were standouts as every movie received multiple votes for “Best Film,” and 4 out of the 6 films received an award. That never happens at our festival as usually there is 1-2 films that receive all of the votes and win all of…
