Paint It Black
First screened in June 2017
Director: Amber Tamblyn. Cast: Alia Shawkat, Janet McTeer, Rhys Wakefield, Alfred Molina, Emily Rios, Simon Helberg, Patrick Davis. Screenplay: Amber Tamblyn (based on the novel by Janet Fitch).

Twitter Capsule: Amber Winding Tamblyn goads everything to bold extremes, with too few viewer payoffs. Ideas aplenty, weakly joined.

VOR:   Credit to Tamblyn for amping behavior, color, and other elements to such heightened levels, even if it doesn't all cohere. It's different.
