Luka Chuppi

The film doesn’t take itself seriously. I’d say it is one of the major advantages to a slow film like such. But the makers tend to make a minor mistake of assuming that the audience would be slow too, similar to the pacing of the film and the way I write in this article. What…

And maybe that’s why it holds a place in one of those rare milestones that can and does hold up against time. But screenwriters Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avery…

Silicon Valley

John Altschuler, Mike Judge and Dave Krinsky, the creators of a nerd fest phenomenon, are sensationally and accurately on mark. And this is what they want. Should want. Getting their point across the room considering what it follows. The fans won’t leave…
