    Absolutely do not watch Phoenix if you are looking for a Holocaust movie with a plausible premise or Tarantino-esque ending.

    Absolutely watch Phoenix if you are ready to be totally absorbed by a beautiful, surreal meditation on love, betrayal, and the aftermath of war.

    A Date for Mad Mary


    Here's my elevator pitch to drop everything and see this film if you get the chance:

    Mad Mary is the Irish Moonlight of 2017. But with adorable Irish accents and a running John Carter joke.

    Don't watch the trailer. It ruins a plot point that should take time to develop, and it wrongly makes this look like a silly romantic comedy.

    The comparison to Moonlight isn't perfect. This is a film about women and it was filmed before Moonlight came…
