Still Of The Night (1982)
Streep's femme fatale is overly conscious and uncertain. Scheider and Tandy squish brighter but cannot bail out the tepid mystery. 27-Feb-2019
A depiction of modern slavery is a tough subject not to exploit. Deon Taylor identifies the subject but can't tackle it hard enough for us to feel it. 03-Jan-2019
Foxy Brown (1974)
The material doesn't spark but a slice of home and a plenitude of attitude make up for the pinch. Grier is gorgeous disciplinarian. 16-Nov-2018
Killing Ground (2016)
All Kool-Aid, no punch. 05-Sep-2018
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
Candied environment, matching toy cars and boy tramp stampede. It doesn't get more boyly than this. 30-Aug-2018
Sinner, The (2017)
It terrifies with the psychology that no matter how virtuous the effort, parents can't take pride in giving life if they can't provide a way for the distressed to enjoy it.
Jessica Biel may be putting up walls but they're decorative. She has the same light that burned Farah's wings on.
I couldn't put the book down. 07-Jul-2018
Prick Up Your Ears (1987)
Alfred Molina suffocates in gay insecurity and Gary Oldman glides into indulgeness. The film celebrates gay life as much as it warns us about knuckling to its darkest tendencies. 23-Jun-2018
Collector, The (2009)
Schooling for psychopaths on how to execute an ugly death. It's bloody torture. 20-Jun-2018
Postman Always Rings Twice, The (1981)
Jessica is ignited, Jack is just and the story is on broil. It replaces a toxic relationship with a violent one pretending its a portrait of love. The brutality that intercedes raises a wall between the main that disallows the emotionally sequestered writ understanding of motivation. Jessica and the film's corruption keep it afloat. 18-Jun-2018
Casualties of War (1989)
The director's presence and personality emblazons an already perplexed account of inhumanity in the midst of war. The shots are as unnerving as they are beautiful. The accents and the oneupmanship are overexerted but when the camera follows Fox and its victim (Thuy Thu Lee,) it allows them to speak hushedly, flatteringly and compassionately. 10-Jun-2018
Teen embarks on a quest to free his stolen kicks from the menace in his matted society. It seems selfish and material to take a stand for shoes but he's fighting for the only thing that brings joy to his unrestful life, good friends help. 11-May-2018
Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
Beauteous in razzle dazzle, confusing and idle in action. Three hours is a lot to bear and all me and my lover wanted to do was feed Ryan Gosling cereal so he could crack up. 12-Apr-2018
Psycho III (1986)
Psycho II (1983)
Everything has been dialed up a notch...the performances, the dedication, the modernization. Unfortunately all the movie needed was a tip, an expansion and a scare. Hitchcock's successor was necessary to rein that in. 08-Apr-2018
It's an ode to American action farce from another time except the makers weren't privy to any of the good ones. The leads have bygone ethnic daddy squish, chemistry and lashes of quick wit. The film has a reset button, treats women like chess pieces and has no identity. I'm not figuring it out for them. 20-Feb-2018
