Milwaukee duo hopes Kickstarter can get them to "Shangri-L.A."

Published Aug. 26, 2015

Now, with their Internet comedy series "Shangri-L.A.," Milwaukee-grown filmmakers Drew Rosas and Nick Sommer ("Billy Club," "Pester") are the latest to go in search of the worldly utopia. Well, kind of, as the search for dreams brings them to the very real city of Los Angeles - and to Kickstarter to help finish the 11 episode production.


"Phoenix" is a "Vertigo"-riffing psychological slow burn that soars

Published Aug. 23, 2015

If you're planning on riffing off of one of Hollywood's greatest director's greatest movies, you better know what you're doing. Luckily, the man behind "Phoenix" is the extremely talented German director Christian Petzold, who smartly takes a touch of Hitchcock and twists it into an impressive project all of his own, a brilliantly crafted modern post-war noir carefully cloaked in mystery that slowly but satisfyingly burns to a quiet fireworks display of a finale.

The movie is a mess, one that - even at its best and most promising - plays like a sleepy also-ran before it even gets out of the gate.


Marvel's "Ant-Man" scores big by going small

Published Aug. 9, 2015

The hardest part of watching Marvel's "Ant-Man" is thinking about the "Ant-Man" movie you're not watching. Once you finally make peace with that fact, however, the film we ended up actually getting is actually still pretty good in its own right, delivering a fun and brisk-minded micro-sized jaunt into the Marvel Cinematic Universe without the burden of the MCU - or its own tortured production history - weighing on its tiny pest-sized shoulders.
