  • Ryan Clark's rating of the film The Asphyx

    Not perfect by any means, but proof positive that an intriguing concept, solid acting, and good cinematography are the only requirements for an entertaining film. The Asphyx (which sounds like a porno title when you say it out loud) is rather talky, and it's a tad predictable despite the unique subject matter, but I found myself fascinated. It probably won't ever be one of my favorite films, though.
