What are people saying?

  • Samuel T.'s rating of the film The Night Overtakes Me

    A harrowing introspection of a woman who tried her entire life to help others, only to be submitted to a life of vulgar cruelty. Herz imposes radical color shifts from burning yellows to deep-under-the-ocean blues to accentuate hope, and hell. Thanks Criterion and Second Run for The Cremator and Morgiana. But, like many little-known auteurs, who have one masterpiece plucked, Herz has a whole library to see remastered
