‘Black Bear’ Review: An Intriguingly Layered Puzzle That Begs to be Solved

On this episode of The Global Film Podcast, Editor-In-Chief and Host Diego Andaluz reviews Lawrence Michael Levine’s latest film Black Bear. Joined by contributors Ryan McQuade (Awards Radar), Nabeel Zaman (Film Updates), and Carson Timar (Clapper), they touch on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the film, among other notable highlights.

At a remote lake house in the Adirondack Mountains, a couple entertains an out-of-town guest looking for inspiration in her filmmaking. The group quickly falls into a calculated game of desire, manipulation, and jealousy, unaware of how dangerously intertwined their lives will soon become.
