    Göteborg Review: Alejandro Jodorowsky 'The Dance Of Reality' Is An Inventive, Surreal Meta-Memoir

    Göteborg Review: 'Starred Up' Is An Instant Classic Of The Prison Movie Genre

    What a glorious, freezing, snowy Swedish Monday at the Göteborg International Film Festival it was, because, for a non-Sundance attendee like me, it yielded the first truly great film of 2014. “Starred Up” (which, OK fine, actually premiered at Telluride last year) is an instant classic of the priso...
