What are people saying?

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Edge City

    Featuring a chaotic bank robbery, an arcane mystery involving a shadowy figure manipulating events, a scene shot beneath the decaying prop-arch from Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West & a concluding use of My Way by Sid Vicious, Cox's UCLA student film is like a testing ground for subsequent work. It's not hugely interesting as a standalone narrative, but it helps to provide an insight into its maker's methodology.
