Little Hope Was Arson is a fascinating documentary which centers around a group of churches that were destroyed by arson throughout east Texas in 2010. Its title alludes to Little Hope Baptist Church, which was the first church to be destroyed...

John Wick deals with grief-as-hell not in sentiment, but through cartoonish ultraviolence. Where Christ wielded compassion, sacrifice, and meekness as weapons against hell, Wick brandishes a torrent of bullets...
