THE ENTITLEMENT Trailer



THE ENTITLEMENT tells the story of a troubled young woman, who, upon arriving at an idyllic retreat for the suicidal, finds herself investigating a mysterious death away from the watchful eyes of the retreat’s enigmatic doctor and his wife. Along the way she meets a colorful group of lost souls, all of whom are destined to be each other’s last acquaintances before they decide to die. Audiences have called the film “funny”, “thought-provoking” and, “the next Twin Peaks.”

“Many ideas and people inspired The Entitlement, from the ensemble of actors to the 1937 Spanish play Prohibido suicidarse en primavera. But, mostly, I was interested in a story built on acceptance of suicide as a given, a choice, with no stigma or questions, asked,” says GonzΓ‘lez.

The film was shot entirely in New York. The diverse cast and crew comprises members and regular collaborators of Caborca, whose mission is to produce adventurous works at an intersection of the Latinx/Puerto Rican and experimental art communities. “I have long felt that for a company to work independently and sustainably in a country that refuses to recognize art as a public good is a radical act. This has been a guiding mission in theatre, and to expand it into film feels ripe with meaning at this moment,” says producer and cast member, David Skeist.

Following it’s World Premiere, Caborca’s theatrical film debut, THE ENTITLEMENT, took home the Award for Best Screenplay at the 2018 Manhattan Film Festival. I'm definitely looking forward to this one. Until we have release information, here's the trailer.

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
