Korean filmmaker goes goth in beautiful, baffling psychothriller
This hyper-gothic thriller is one ravishing and confusing chimera—as if Terrence Malick had directed an episode of “Dexter” written by Charlotte Brontë. It’s lurid, eerie and stylish as all get-out. And apt to drive mainstream audiences crazy.
KiMo Theatre is pulling out the big guns, giving audiences a six-shooter of cult crime films with its “6 By Tarantino” series.
Barabbas on Reelz
Just in time for the Easter season, Reelz Channel offers up a ham-handed, hammily acted mini-series of mostly dubious Biblical provenance. Given that our tolerance for corny, overproduced, excessively long Biblical epics is at a seasonal high, though, perhaps some of us are in the mood for a little ham.
Highlights from around the dial. Except no one has dials anymore.
