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.

Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …

SONG OF SOLOMON Review

Exorcism films do not begin and end with William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST. With entries as varied as BEETLEJUICE, CONSTANTINE, and THE RITE, the exorcism sub-genre of horror films is far more diverse than many immediately recognize.  

With THE SONG OF SOLOMON director Stephen Brio has added a unique take on the possession movie. In his film, the Catholic church attempts to save the soul of Mary (Jessica Cameron) who appears to have been possessed after witnessing her father's brutal suicide.

Mary is off camera while her father takes his own life. In a scene that could play as a confessional or an accusation, the family's patriarch lists off the reasons why he is being forced to use his knife on Mary and himself. He details how they were a good, loving family and he can't understand why she is accusing him of abuse. Using demonic control as a metaphor for trauma survival is something so natural, I can't believe it's not woven into every film of this kind.
