Every year we hear from new people wanting to get involved with Landlocked. It’s great to see their reactions to independent films. This year we have some commentary from newbie Avinash Yadav on a couple of 2012’s films.
HEATHENS & THIEVES
During the time of the gold rush, several parties arrive at a desolate Northern California horse ranch in search of rumored loot. The drama that ensues leaves the audience on edge. Is there any loot to be had? Who will get their hands on it? The fact that the ranch is occupied by a young Chinese family adds to the tension during this period of anti-Chinese sentiment. An emerging rift between the Chinese husband and wife further complicates matters as loyalties begin to shift. Who will get the upper hand? It’s worth watching this enjoyable feature film to find out.
This documentary tells about the rise of the Tea Party movement in American politics. Whether you’re sympathetic with the movement or not, it is sure to enlighten. I certainly learned something about the movement, even though I thought I had understood it. Definitely worth watching.
