Film Review - The Machine (2023)
Blu-ray Review - The Beast in Space

Blu-ray Review - Broker


Writer/director Hirokazu Kore-eda is an exceptionally talented filmmaker who's been on a streak of involving dramas over the last decade, mostly recently on view in 2018's "Shoplifters" and 2019's "The Truth," which offered him a chance to make a French endeavor, changing things up from his usual interests.
