By: Nick van Dinther In Boundaries, director Shana Feste tells a story that’s loosely based on her relationship with her father and their shared life experience; which makes it surprising that one of the movie’s biggest setbacks is how cliché it is, and how it lacks realism.
Austin Found is yet another case where the trailer sells the audience on a different kind of movie. In two-and-a-half minutes, the film is presented as a foolish dark romp featuring incompetent criminals. At 100 minutes, it’s warped southern goodness that’s tonally confused and ends in irony.
I liked The Boss. The film isn’t particularly memorable and the comedy hits low targets when it has the ability to be more ambitious, but Ben Falcone’s movie had me in frequent fits of laughter nonetheless.
