Breathe [2015] Review: A Devastating Inspection of Emotional Turmoil!

If you have ever felt that you are at the end of a road, left to tether away in ruins of claustrophobic self-loathing.

Cartel Land [2015]: On the Frontlines of Narco Culture

At one early point in Director Matthew Heineman’s vibrant, drug war documentary Cartel Land (2015), we see a worn out, weeping woman talking about how her husband was kidnapped and tortured in horrific, unspeakable ways. The woman’s terrifying experience might make us think of “Cartel Land” as a subjective documentary on Mexico’s hazardous narco culture.
