What are people saying?

  • Michael Peer's rating of the film Bitch

    Marianna Palka's latest doesn't hold back any punches and demonstrates serious potential from her. Palka somehow juggles 5 different tones (horror, psycho drama, screwball comedy, sentimental family drama, coming of age) all in one insane metaphor of a film that basically says, "treat your woman like a bitch and she's turn into a bitch". The insane score and manic sequences are very reminiscent of Punch Drunk Love.
