REview: Who Am I (2014) | A Crime Caper Well Worth Catching

I’m not the greatest fan of subtitles. That being said I’ve been watching quite a few foreign movies lately and what I’ve learned is that they’re a necessary evil, especially if your other option is dubbing.

This is particularly relevant when you take into account that we have Netflix, the upcoming Disney+ and […]
