Review: Old Stone, 2016, dir. Johnny Ma

What a crazy world we live in, where a person can do the right thing and get their ass kicked for it by bureaucracy. That’s what Johnny Ma’s debut film, Old Stone, is all about. It’s a lean, harsh bit of work, maybe a bit too off the rails in its final moments (and certainly too heavy-handed with its nature imagery), but definitely a movie worth checking out if you have access to it. (I’m not sure where it’s opening outside of New York, or when. Maybe on-demand someday.) Anyways – my Paste Magazine review is up. Feed me your clicks.
