‘CinemAddicts’ Reviews “Baskin” & “I Saw The Light”

baskin5Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has received absolutely horrible reviews, and with such a low critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, you might want to spend your hard earned dollars elsewhere.

During this week’s CinemAddicts, we review the mind-bending Turkish horror film Baskin, a feature which blends dreamscapes, the supernatural, and gore into one tasty and satisfying gumbo pot. The nightmarish story centers on five cops who investigate an abandoned building, only to find an underworld filled with evildoers that harbor a taste for flesh. If you’re not a huge fan of gore, some of the movie’s sequences may leave you squeamish, but the overall world created in Baskin is definitely unique and ultimately terrifying.

Ethan Hawke plays jazz man Chet Baker in the feature Born To Be Blue, a movie that, though filled with fictional accounts of his life, captures the emotional truth and artistic journey behind the trumpeter. Both Baskin and Born to Be Blue are IFC releases that hit select theaters Friday and will also be available on VOD.

I also give my take on the Hank Williams biopic I Saw The Light, which hits select cities Friday. Tom Hiddleston (Thor) gives one of his best performances as the tortured and talented country artist, while Elizabeth Olsen is also magnetic as Hank’s strong willed wife Audrey.
