Where does he go from here, and how will this inform his apparent crisis of faith in Islam?

NOC Review: Amber Midthunder Hits Her Target Dead On in ‘Prey’

The Predator film franchise centered on the clash between its race of a highly evolved race of aliens who hunt alphas for sport versus man. While its predecessors were as bloody and violent as the next, Dan Trachtenberg’s Prey goes back to basics with a primal and bloody David vs. Goliath story that not only is worthy of being a part of the iconic franchise but something could stand on its own thanks to Amber Midthunder’s astonishing performance that subverts tropes in a way that finally makes indigenous cultures the heroes of their own story.

Either we have stories that consists of “coming-of-age” or “coming-out” — both of which are completely fine and beautiful — but there never is a unapologetically queer movie about finding love through the chaos of one hot summer. That is where Andrew Ahn’s Fire Island comes in.
