Alberto forms an unusual friendship with Luly, the manager of the 24-hour gym where he works as a night guard.

Despite a pallor that could be indicative of anything from drug addiction to poor diet, Alberto (Alberto Trujillo) is otherwise as innocuous as they come.  Speaking only when directly engaged and rarely looking up from under a drooped head, the few second glances he receives are those of mild fear and … Continue reading

A new Jim Jarmusch film is cause for excitement for fans who like his extremely laid back, no rush style of film making. Before I go any further with this review let me state that I’m not one of those fans. I did enjoy Ghost Dog … Continue reading

Boy Eats Girl, the Republic of Ireland’s solution to the lack of teenage romantic-comedy zombie films.  This incongruous combination of genres surprisingly works well.  To presumptuously project on the matter, … Continue reading
