Madre (Mother) (2016)
An expectant mother with a virulent special needs child, becomes overwhelmed until she meets and hires a kindly filipino grandmother who claims to have cured her own. The treatment consists of communicating with him in her native tongue, pampering him like a favorite child and emotionally distancing him from his natural mother. The boy recuperates, learns to speak filipino and clamps himself onto the mother (nanny) he desperately needs. Mother has her discomforts, daddy is relieved and the household finds much needed bliss. Mother marches along, suspending her doubts and chalking the old woman's takeover as relief. As soon as madre decides to use an app translator to discover what the nanny is communicating to her son, the mama wars begin. Daddy is gaslighting, mama is hallucinating and racial political correctness is straining. The film makes a point that the intent to make everyone legitimate renders safety mute even whey they act stereotypically. It's a nail-biter I don't recommend to expectant mothers... unless they want to drop early. 02-Apr-2020
Bob Hearts Abishola (2019-)
Is it improper for me to say that I wish someone else would love Abishola? 31-Mar-2020
The leads do not align, Bob's family grates and reverse hate is not progressive. 08-Nov-2019
Exploring multi-cultural attitudes to life problems is interesting. The black characters sparkle but their counterparts appear like unwanted houseguests. I'm sure good writing can fix that. (I liked it.) 25-Sep-2019
The beautiful ones return in high style and peak bloom.
Fluidity is tunneled, pummeled and charged. The freedom to inherit all relationship prospects is an elite politic that facilitates mass hurt because the kids that invented it are incapable of successfully mastering it. They're human.
The parents do as Oprah taught them and heal most of their miracles' hemorrhage with gifts and money.
The beauties confusing the system to reclaim justice was resplendent.
The mystery continues and concludes, the ones are masters of bitchiness and heartbreak and the thread is reinforced nylon. Brava! 29-Mar-2020
The season was mapped mathematically and it hit every point. The actors are snug in their roles and stamping their characters. The drama makes you talk to yourself, the police work is thought out and everything looks delicious. Cool as fuck. 23-Sep-2019
They represent with no restraints and the teens are regarded with soul. The societal menace is heavier, coddling is out and the hurt is overwhelming. They are fighting a world adults complicated with wee survival skills. Beauty is diverse and it lingers because the writers keep tearing at it. 23-Nov-2018
Lobster, The (2015)
Couples rule in a post cruel world. If you don't find a mate they turn you into an animal. Its royal art of weirdness with little justification and a vivid imagination. Colin inherits a comedian's edge, puncturing the establishment in a catatonic state and making us laugh and cheer. Rachel Weisz keeps the heart of the film beating and Yorgos is crazy. 29-Mar-2020
Green Room (2015)
Band of vagabonds get punished by nazis for playing crappy rock or because they witnessed a crime. Sir Patrick Stewart was hired to class up the film and the "n" word. Anton Yelchin's heroism is a John Connor (Terminator) facsimile with substandard realization. The film lost me as soon as the punk picks up his phone to call the police for a kill that wasn't directed at him. What is the purpose of nazis if there is no racial conflict? (They don't need the props.) They were dim and disoriented and anything but scary. It stalls, it repeats, it celebrates and I believed very little of it. 28-Mar-2020
Autopsy Of Jane Doe, The (2016)
The autopsy is comprehensive, the actors are aligned and the corpse is an eerily beautiful masterpiece. The mumbo jumbo is handled scientifically which excludes genius insanity being the harbinger of truth and sets some practical scares for us. 27-Mar-2020
Little Fires Everywhere (2020-)
A mama cold war, a class distinction an intellectual race riot. It theorizes that women only need to act like a mother to push the children through life. It states that racism's hypocrisy, sensitivity and overreaction will never mend it. The children are at a loss serving as parental investments of an unsettled future while practicing what they learn from them as much as what they hate.
Kerry Washington threw her TVQ out the window to portray a most questionable mother with a permanent scowl on her face, a confrontational outlook and some sort of mental instability. Witherspoon is the mother whose charity she thinks will excuse her parental ditto. She peels enough layers to inform us that she rationalizes that racism is wrong but the safety of her family comes first.
The baby drama is the new focal point and it may be its drawback. The coincidence was grand and mama Mia had no business offering a co-worker, who abandoned her baby, money that would have been better suited for her own daughter. It makes her hard to like.
It's nagging, addictive and igniting. 26-Mar-2020
All Of Me (1984)
Instead of a body switch Mr. Reiner chose partial possession which is one of the most improbable storylines attempted ever. We want no change in anything but the story. The pros (Martin and Tomlin) don't embarrass easily because it makes sense that great comedy training includes stupidity. Martin freights most of it and freewheels in an agitated state that unnerves us but never hinders us from lapping up his star charm. Lily didn't feel like an equal because she was stuck in a mirror for most of it but her adorable cheekiness and one liners hit. The dance was still cute. 25-Mar-2020
The society is comprised of envy, maintenance, labor, guts and unification. Images remain in your head, long after you've dismissed them. The story is absolutely unique, the actors are natural and the suffering for/from abundance touches every base. Trimming would have propelled a much stronger impact but I couldn't stop watching every minute of its extensive length. 23-Mar-2020
Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (1954)
Men were men, maintaining the environment and women were the foundation of the home. Women complain and acquiesce; men do and expect. It was a time for falling immensely in love at first sight.. hearing about her... smelling her... he's fuckin' big. The cavemen are fuckable, idiotic and tamable. Except for the main and a purring pussycat the brides are an indistinguishable group. They desired less but they connived, demanded and bended it to their advantage like a future President. It's joyous to a fault especially when kidnapping little girls. The music no longer vibrates like it did but the hoofing was athletic muscularity. 20-Mar-2020
Killing Of A Sacred Dear, The (2017)
Doctor feels responsible for causing the death of a teenage boys' father. He befriends him and his mother and integrates him into his own. The boy is a psychotic Jesus whose God has been bested by a doctor playing at God. Colin Farrell adds beautiful whisper to his lilt, calming us, confusing us and surprising us. Barry Keoghan is a vengeful prince ravaging the establishment and scary as fuck. Alicia Silverstone sucks good hands. Raffey Cassidy and Sunny Sulgic supply the perfect endorsement for burdening yourself with care one minute and smacks, the other. Nic holds it tight for the first hour, being logical and abiding but by the last hour she's tongue lashing and bitch slapping her character to heaven. Yorgos Lanthimos kept it artistic, chillingly precise, musically gripped and the giant balls to give us an OMG ending. 18-Mar-2020
Dead Kids (Strange Behavior) - (1981)
Controlling kids for kills. Bursting with ideas that the master had no idea how to cohesively cobble together. The kills are interesting because they are clumsy like real life. Fiona Lewis' donut bun steals the whole thing. 18-Mar-2020
We feast on a most delectable future whilst our brains ping pong. Wright daddied up, Wood is glam assassin, Paul does his thing and Newton yums. 17-Mar-2020
Big Time Adolescence (2019)
I was expecting a rebellious and outrageous comedy but was impressed with a calm rendition of a boy's passage to manhood. $, drugs, sex and girls are what a boy negotiates during this stage of exploration but the satisfaction of being cool with your bud is everything. Gluck, Davidson and Cryer epitomize the title and lend credence to why they don't want to grow up.The film's detachment impedes greatness but it was close. 14-Mar-2020
I Am Jonas (2019)
Allowing youthful discretions to define the gay fuck-up you become in life. The boys (young and old) are peak representation and the film strives to be authentic. 14-Mar-2020
