Mad Men: “A Day’s Work” (7.2) – TV Recap

By Jordan Ferguson

There is some amount of pride in doing a day’s work (at least, an honest one, but we’ll get there). Getting through a workday can be a difficult thing, and making it to the finish line carries with it some satisfaction, or at least, that’s what we tell ourselves to ensure we get ... Read More »

Game of Thrones: “Breaker of Chains” (4.3) – TV Recap

TIFF’s Kids International Film Festival: Felix Review

By Matthew Blevins

On the streets of Cape Town narrative fiction and real life collide in beautiful spectacles of musical expression with the seemingly endless range of the unassuming penny whistle making a king out of a boy named Felix who has mastered the ability to exude pure joy through the sim... Read More »

Breaking the Waves Review – NP Approved

By Joe Galm

Before gifting us the cinema of blood spurting phalluses (and talking foxes!) in 2009, before he ended the world in 2011, and before he, in graphic yet clinical fashion, challenged the sexual mores of society and the filmic facsimiles thereof this past year, Lars von Trier made B... Read More »

Transcendence Review

Transcendence Review

By Doug Heller

Cinematographer Wally Pfister’s directorial debut, Transcendence, is really a film that would have been better suited for Stanley Kubrick, given Kubrick’s career long theme of the dehumanization of man and the large roll technology plays in that dehumanization. Pfister doesn’t h... Read More »

Jaime on Criterion: M Review – NP Approved

By Jaime Burchardt

It must have been the cheers that come with a big city. Usually the sounds of joy attract me. But since I was walking the path that’s been laid out by the Criterion catalog, I figured it could be anything that brought me to Germany. The mysterious fog had lifted, long enough for ... Read More »

Hannibal: “Su-zakana” (2.8) – TV Recap

By Jordan Ferguson

On its surface, “Su-zakana” feels like a procedural episode from Hannibal’s first season. There is a killer of the week, and Will Graham is helping the FBI track him down. Meanwhile, Will is receiving psychiatric treatment from Hannibal Lecter, a figure of much more complexity th... Read More »

Parenthood, “The Pontiac” (5.22)-TV Recap

By Luke Annand

Even though this is from Victor's prize winning essay (titled "The Pontiac", which is where the finale gets its title from) about him working on Zeke's GTO in relation to Joel and Julia's marriage falling apart, this quote could be easily talking about season 5 of Parenthood as a... Read More »

Community: “Basic Sandwich” (5.13) – TV Recap

Community: “Basic Sandwich” (5.13) – TV Recap

By Jordan Ferguson

Last week, Community dealt with the possibility of its own ending, the chance that the story of Greendale and its occupants was about to come to an end, even if none of us, and none of the characters, were ready for that to be the case. “Basic Sandwich” is almost the exact opposi... Read More »

Kid Cannabis Review

Kid Cannabis Review

By Adrian Charlie

A weed comedy released during 4/20 has a target audience. The poster and trailer suggest a light comedy with young boys saying funny things and getting themselves in and out of sticky situations. Maybe some are expecting Pineapple Express but the marketing for this film sells an... Read More »
