Faults


Once again the place to see the best new movies is none other than your couch.  VOD is where it's at these days, and Faults is one of the most interesting films of the year so far.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as a woman who has fallen victim to a cult, much to her parents' dismay.  They want their daughter back and enlist the help of a down-on-his-luck author and purported subject matter expert (Leland Orser).  But does he really know what he's doing? 

Perhaps I'm biased, since I'm fascinated by all films about cults (Martha Marcy May Marlene, The Master, Sound of My Voice, and The East to name a few recent favorites).  But I found this movie totally engaging from start to finish, in no small part due to excellent performances by both Orser and Winstead.

Faults is now available on Video on Demand and you should see it.

Grade: A

Who is this movie for?   If you like the quirky Coen Brothers-esque dramas, then this one is well worth your time.
