  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Lord of Tears

    Despite the scenic photography, the flashy 'modern' editing kills the patient, contemplative mood immensely. As this slow crawl recalls films of yesteryear, but the narrative can use chopping to get to points quicker. The stilted acting by the entire cast doesn't help, either. Moreover, the sight (alike Michele Soavi's Stagefright) of the Owl Man is indeed quite scary. So scary that it belongs in a better movie.
