Avarice (John V. Soto, 2022) Gillian Alexy, Luke Ford, Alexandra Nell, Tea Heathcote-Marks; thriller
Though he can’t resist the temptation to work in some complex plotting, ... John V. Soto does essentially keep it lean and mean here, with limited locations and only a small group of central characters. Soto effectively ratchets up the tension from scene to gripping scene, and makes Kate such a strong, sympathetic figure – and the bad guys such reprehensible shit-heels – that audiences will likely let out a cheer when she gets out her bow and arrows and sets about using the villains for target practice. Smartly put together and entertaining, Avarice is a rock-solid homegrown thriller. FilmInk.
