Starring Lily Collins, Jesse Plemons, and Jason Segel, Windfall is a 2022 American thriller film directed by Charlie McDowell. It was released on March 19, 2022, on Loklok.
The story revolves around a man who breaks into a tech billionaire's empty vacation home, but things go awry as the arrogant mogul and his wife arrive for a last-minute getaway.
Setting in a confined space/setting, Windfall is more like a minimalist thriller stage play, or a retro movie, as the whole movie is about 4 actors stuck in a villa. Having a killer cast, the film is a bounty of cinematic riches.
Mariama Diallo's directorial debut, Master, is a 2022 American thriller film written and directed by her. Regina Hall, Zoe Renee, and Amber Gray feature in the film.
The film builds its story upon the racial fear of being ethnically black, focusing on the story of Gail Bishop and her roommate Amelia. The students at the school believe it is cursed by the ghost of Margaret Millet. Together, they embark on a terrifying journey to uncover the disturbing truth.
Diallo's first feature film demonstrates that racism's fear does not have to be overt or visible; it can be generational and subtle. Horror films have become de rigueur for exposing and exploring different shades of racism, thanks to Jordan Peele. Diallo embraces the genre while also infusing it with a sense of entitlement and classism.
