Who Gets The Dog? (2016)
You stay for the dog. 26-Dec-2018
The camera is tricky and holds a tight grip. Edmund Kingsley is burdened with having to convey panic and desperation with a partially helmeted face. He adds to the film's accomplishments. It's important to understand the circumstances because we still repeat them today. The knowledge surprises. 24-Nov-2018
An American Rhapsody (2001)
A child established with world displacement by parental and governmental abandon. The accents are tuneless, Goldwyn can take a beating, Kinski bears mother regret and Johansson freshens teenage rebellion. A deeper study could have generated considerable empathy and provoked an argument instead of halting lightly. 25-Oct-2018
Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic (2013)
His upbringing decided what he would become but his art established how we remember him. He admitted his shortcomings, paid a penance and allowed us to think past the laughter. 28-Sep-2018
The macho pose may seem off date but who cares when the master has proliferated a grand illusion and Zoe Saldana is gut wrenched. 15-Sep-2018
Everything, Everything (2017)
The comfort it establishes assures us of a thoughtful investment. Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson provide a bright light for their star, always convincing us dreams are necessary and that kindness is inherent. Anika Noni Rose lends the adult voice a striking parental interpretation.
The script keeps it level even when our feet are off the ground.
The Little Prince analysis saddened me. 15-Aug-2018
Mary and the Witch's Flower (2017)
I was more taken away by its beauty than its logic. 08-Aug-2018
Big Sick, The (2017)
Its not outrageous in comedy but its perceptive in family relations and love. It argues stereotypes, parenting and choices convincingly and it presents the actors amiably. Kumail Nanjiani espouses his culture with nods to old traditions while embarking on new ones as an American. Zoe Kazan demonstrates love with a minimum drop of physicality and Ray Romano splatters all the isms that make him classic. 01-Aug-2018
Apollo 13 (1995)
Ron Howard reveres and engages us in science. Tom Hanks heads the daddy brave brigade and Kathleen Quinlan commands the tormented family ensemble. 08-Jul-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
In This Our Life (1942)
Respect for its black performers is admirable. The film is sudsy, gutsy and wild. Dennis Morgan emits vapors, Olivia perfects saccharine and even though there is too much evil in Bette, she still stands tall. 14-Jun-2018
Wedding Banquet, The (1993)
Ang Lee introduces us to an Asian culture bountiful in beauty, tradition, family, support and sustenance. Gay pretense is consequential as much a lifestyle and Lee's straight irony keeps it bathed in honesty. 09-Jun-2018
A Raisin In The Sun (1961)
Our predecessors left us an honest slice of life art to authenticate their struggles and to cultivate resolution for their successors. The players are fierce and representative, the writing/directing excels in depiction and respect and the past allows us to retrospect and opine our future. Respect. 31-May-2018
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Holds your breadth with magic. 11-May-2018
Better Watch Out (2016)
The idea is terrifying because the reality is. The film tests you and deplores you but you keep hanging on. We want to feel that the torture endured will dignify an ending release. The balls hang low. 30-Apr-2018
