TV Review: Sundance Channel Continues Excellent Year with ‘The Returned’

CHICAGO – They have already made a statement in 2013 by broadcasting Jane Campion’s brilliant “Top of the Lake” and the riveting “Rectify” but Sundance Channel goes for the hat trick, starting tonight, as they debut the French supernatural hit “The Returned,” a brilliant twist on the undead genre that places the emphasis on mood, dread, and emotion instead of the unexpected.

Film Review: Violent, Extreme Crime Saga of ‘Mesrine: Public Enemy #1’ With Vincent Cassel

Mesrine: Public Enemy #1
HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 3.5/5.0
Rating: 3.5/5.0
