Eric’s Review: Sissy (SXSW 2022 World Premiere)

★★★ out of ★★★★★
Cecilia has become a successful influencer, using self-help meditation rituals of her own creation. Unfortunately, she has yet to truly conquer her own insecurities, and when she gets invited to spend some quality time with a long-lost childhood bestie, her childhood bully is there too, bringing up long-dormant fears and is forced to take a more aggressive approach to deal with her problems. At times admirable, at others frustrating, the movie is a bit of a mixed bag of bullying tropes.

Joseph’s SXSW Reviews: “Emergency” and “Blink”

Emergency: ★★★★ out of ★★★★★
as I was during the dark-comedy thriller Emergency. Its trio of protagonists have different views on what the right thing to do in their situation might be, and everything they do seems to get them in deeper and hotter water.

Blink: ★★★★ out of ★★★★★
A young woman named Mary (Sophie Thatcher) wakes up in a hospital bed, paralyzed and only able to communicate with the nurse on duty (Alicia Coppola) by blinking. Full Short included here!
