SFN @ SXSW15: ‘Seven Chinese Brothers’ [MOVIE REVIEW]

Jason Schwartzman is Funnier than ever in Seven Chinese Brothers I am not going to lie. Schwartzman has always been kind of like a boil on my ass. Sure, it can be fun to lance it and let the disgustingness flow, but it serves no purpose other than to irritate me. That’s because of two of his films: Spun and Rushmore. I absolutely hated this films. Spun was a hyper-stylized, preachy afterschool special and Rushmore might be the...

SFN @ SXSW: ‘The Diabolical’ [MOVIE REVIEW]

The Diabolical Proves that Originality does not Always Equal Greatness We have all seen haunted house stories. Some did it well (Poltergeist) and others did it badly (House on Haunted Hill), but none of them have ever put such a strange twist on it as The Diabolical. When the moment of realization came, I was surprised by what they did. It hadn’t been done before — but maybe that is because the twist is kind of dumb (and...
