“Tax Collector”

6.6

A knock-off of “Sicario” in my book. A fairly mediocre action movie about gang violence. Shia LeBouf plays a fixer/tax collector, hence the name. Sometimes uncomfortable levels of onscreen violence ensue. George Lopez shows up for a hot second. Pretty fun of the mill, overall.

“You Should Have Left”

7.7

Yes, they should have. But they didn’t, so here we are.

A biblical psychological thriller about sin catching up with you, purgatory, hell. 6 circles of Hell with Kevin Bacon. He’s definitely not dancing footloose in this one. A great performance by him as the lead, a widower with a dark secret dating a woman young enough to be his daughter. A fact that he somehow glosses over, and gets angry about way too often. Like, dude, it’s pretty obvious there’s a huge age gap here.

Anyhow, back to the murder house. Hopefully you’re caught up on your geometry and have a solid grasp on reality, because this film is going to mess with your mind with camera tricks, sets that don’t match up, and illusions that will result in a 45 minute “what the hell is going on here?!?” head tilt. Be careful of renting that house on AirBnB that seems like too good of a deal.
