I write and make art because it helps me understand the world. It forces me to become empathetic; to see everything in a constantly changing perspective.

According to our Greek philosopher friend, there are six elements that construct a well-made play - or for the sake of this review, a well-made movie - but for reasons of constraint, I'll stick to three: plot, character,...
If attending art school for the past three years has taught me anything, it's that art is subjective. Such subjectivity seems to be at the heart of Jeremy Saulnier's 2007 comedic horror film Murder Party.
