Living A Real-Life Twin Peaks

RIP Laura Palmer

RIP Laura Palmer

When Twin Peaks debuted in 1990 it basically launched a genre — pretty blonde girl gets murdered in small town, everything goes bonkers.

But what if you actually lived in a real town where something like that happened?

Sarah did. She lived in Welland, Ontario around the time the truly evil pair of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka were terrorizing the Niagara area.

She wrote about what it was like at that time in a feature story for Consequence of Sound’s Twin Peaks Week series.

‘La La Land’ Is Delightful, Satisfying

La La Land

La La Land

Big deal Hollywood musical film La La Land is making all sorts of film critics swoon at the notion of romantic old school sing-dance movies.

Sarah, the half of Team Risky Fuel who doesn’t think such movies are stupid, calls the film “gorgeous, often delightful, and quite satisfying.”

‘Mascots’ Is A Welcome New Christopher Guest Film

Mascots

Mascots

Christopher Guest, the master of the mockumentary, has released a new film covering the world of competitive mascotting called, coincidentally, Mascots.

The film will break little new ground for anyone familiar with the likes of Best In Show and A Mighty Wind. But what it does showcase is a master at his craft once again creating something solidly entertaining.

Sarah reviewed the film for Consequence Of Sound.

TIFF 2016: Free Fire Shows Ben Wheatley’s Craftsmanship

Free Fire

Free Fire

One of Sarah’s favourite directors is Ben Wheatley.

Because of this she made a point to see his new film Free Fire when it played at TIFF 2016.

Though not the knock out that High Rise was, the film displayed Wheatley’s “level of commitment, craftsmanship, and reliability.”

TIFF 2016: ‘Salt And Fire’ Is Werner Herzog’s Complicated Environmental Film

Salt And Fire

Salt And Fire

One of the more confounding films Sarah saw at the Toronto International Film Festival this year was Werner Herzog’s maybe environmental kidnap drama Salt And Fire.

Says Sarah, “Fans of his unique style and humor will find much to enjoy in Salt and Fire, even if the film does lack some proper cohesion.”
