Personal Shopper (2017)

Running Time: 1hr 45min
Release Date: March 10, 2017
Directed/Written by: Olivier Assayas

Review by: Stacey

I'm not going to lie, I kind of LOVE the Twilight movies.  Hey, at the end of the day I'm still a woman, I like chick stuff.  That said, despite my love for the "young adult" vampire tales, I neeeever could find an ounce of enjoyment for Kristen Stewart (or K Stew if you're E! News).  She always seemed so flat and emotionless, and I know I'm not the only one with that thinking because that kind of became this long-running joke about her.  Which is unfortunate now after having seen Olivier Assayas's  psychological thriller, Personal Shopper.  I don't know if this is the best work she's done (I tended to avoid her projects), but from what I've seen, this is the best work she's done.

Raw (2017)

Running Time: 1hr 39min
Release Date: March 10, 2017
Written/Directed by: Julia Ducournau

Review by: Stacey

Wow, you guys.  Just WOW.

What a better way to celebrate International Women's Day than to bring you this review for the female written/directed French-Belgian film, Raw.  Julia Ducournau's feature film takes us along on a coming-of-age tale that combines a teen's budding sexuality and cannibalism in a weird and violent way.

After hearing buzz about the movie from several people who had screened it already, I knew (hoped) I wasn't going to be disappointed.
