    Trailer and Poster for Sean Durkin’s Short Film ‘Mary Last Seen’

    Winner of the Best Dramatic Direction award at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, Martha Marcy May Marlene remains one of my favorite films of the past few years. It is a clever, creepy and extremely striking reflection on the duplicitous way cults instill their beliefs when feeding on the psychological vulnerabilities of their prey. The […] More

    2011: A Year in Review Part I

    2011 was one of the best years for film in recent years.  There are about 25 films that could have made my top ten list and each film in my top 5 could be my number one.  I saw about 100 films this year and I still wish I could have seen more.  I feel […] More

    Staff List: The 30 Best Films of 2011

    With more movies in limited and general release than ever before, 2011 was a ridiculously crowded year for both casual and discerning moviegoers alike. One by-product of the glut is a refreshing lack of consensus; so many films have been championed in so many corners – while those same films get trashed in others – […] More

    Ten Best Movies of 2011

    300 episodes. If that sounds like an insane number to you, that’s because it damn well is. Since the inception of the radio show roughly four years ago, we’ve reviewed roughly 750 films (if not more), undergone loads of changes in lineup, format, and recording setup, and had our share of trials. With 2011 coming […] More

    2011: The year’s best movie moments (part 2)

      Most moviegoers can agree on one thing: there were way too many movies this year. If you’re (un)fortunate enough to live in New York, you had the opportunity to see around 600 new features come and go; the rest of us didn’t get that many fewer. That means that anyone who’s been put in […] More

    Interview with Sean Durkin (‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’) / ‘Afterschool’

    Ricky D scored an interview with Sean Durkin, the writer-director of one of the year’s most acclaimed films, Martha Marcy May Marlene. In this episode, we included the whole conversation, as well as a review of Afterschool, the Durkin-produced 2008 feature from director Antonio Campos (who, in turn, produced MMMM). Finally, in case you missed […] More

    ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ a flawed and disturbing portrait of identity

    Martha Marcy May Marlene Directed by Sean Durkin Written by Sean Durkin USA, 2012 The fractured nature of Sean Durkin’s Martha Marcy May Marlene is eerily reminiscent of the same tactics used by Derek Cianfrance in his 2010 film Blue Valentine. This film relies less on the novel like structure of the aforementioned film, as it effortlessly invites the […] More
