A DEADLY LEGEND | ©2020 Gravitas Ventures

Unfortunately, the narrative ambitions exceed the grasp of director Pamela Moriarty and writer Eric Wolf, but their efforts to do something new are admirable. In fact, the storytelling is so dense that it’s a bit surprising to find that A DEADLY LEGEND is not based on […]Read On »
