LAFF review A CROOKED SOMEBODY

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.

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.
