  • An appallingly clumsy and stupid take on drugs, kidnapping and suicide in suburbia. show more

  • At once dreamily surreal, acutely intelligent, and strikingly tough-minded, this pitch-dark dramatic comedy recalls David Lynch and "Donnie Darko" while remaining fresh and original to its core. A stunning directorial debut. show more

  • A series of pretentious social commentary punctuated by windows of excellence that only make it more frustrating. show more
