Settlers Movie Review

Cast: Sofia Boutella, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Brooklynn Prince, Nell Tiger Free, Jonny Lee Miller. Our planet is dying, and though some protest that science is all one big conspiracy theory, global warming and other environmental catastrophes all but assure that Earth will not be habitable for the human race for long. Science fiction has, of course, known this for years, and exploration into deep space in search of a new home for civilization has long been a fixture of the genre. The colonization of new worlds is often done by a small group either to test its viability or because of natural selection that thins out a landing party, where those who survive are likely to meet unexpected threats, be they alien or all too recognizably human.

Review: SETTLERS, Wherever We Go, There We Are

Uniquely American, the Western genre has changed radically over the last century, from nationalistic, myth-building propaganda to revisionist self-critique, specifically of the colonialist narrative that centered white Europeans and left indigenous Americans, in the margins at best or primitive, violent savages at worse.

I Trapped the Devil Is as Unclever as Its Title

I Trapped the Devil. Available Wednesday, July 28, on IFC Films. I Trapped the Devil—a 2019 film that got a you'll-miss-it-if-you-blink theatrical release, then was buried alive under the COVID-19 mess—has resurfaced on the IFC Film streaming service. This is sort of a mixed blessing. If you think of it as a film, you will scream for the sweet, blissful release of an axe buried in your head. But if you view it as a video version of the book The Idiot's Guide To 8mm Filmmaking (oh, stop Googling it, you idiot, it's a metaphor), there are a number of useful lessons for young, underfunded auteurs.
