Review: One Cut of the Dead (2017)

Japanese with English Subtitles

Having heard a lot of hype for this low-budget cult horror/comedy from Japanese director Shinichirou Ueda so i was glad to get the chance to check it out for myself.

ONE CUT OF THE DEAD first appears to be a one-take indie zombie film… but something magical happens at 37 minutes in: the film’s director yells cut and – throwing all cinematic conventions and viewer expectations to the wind – it transforms into a charming story about the power of family, the passion that goes into making movies, and, in its stunning final sequence, a uproarious meta re-examination of the film’s opening single take and how it came to be!”

Review: Huckleberry (2018)

Huckleberry; from writer/director Roger Hill follows our titular transgender character (Daniel Fisher-Golden); who is navigating high-school life in a small rural town. He experiences discrimination and ‘Dead-naming’ from various authority figures in the community; which is a very timely issue to show on screen (and is currently often discussed in the media). This, however is not the film’s main thrust but more serves as a cultural backdrop to a ‘Romeo & Juliet’ style love story; as Huckleberry vies for the affections of Jolene (Sarah Ulstrop). She, in turn is trying to walk away from an abusive relationship with ‘Jock’ boyfriend Clint (Justin Rose). This is an interesting reversal of stereotypes and also a classic tale of teenage angst and the struggles of young people in small rural communities.
