Wife, The (2018)
A genius beholden to society for a privileged life granted. A wife chained to such a man with no identity of her own. The story compels but missteps by presuming that we wont respect the woman unless she is of equal caliber. Why can't we respect the wife that stands idly by? There are more of them. Close was adroitly hired to give a schmuck his comeuppance but the writing lets her down. The countdown gets stuck when sudden happens and Close is abruptly halted from slaying. An almost. 30-Jul-2019
There are tidbits I didn't know. Child genius, warped sensibilities and family hypocrisy. The catalog is immense as is the concept of each song. Many odes to so many things only we can remember. The razzle dazzle is there, the actor siphons the legend's anger and the music remains inspired. A life worth celebrating. 05-Jul-2019
What's Love Got To Do With It (1993)
You can clip a bird's wings but it's still going to sing. Fishburne spars rhythmically while Bassett adds muscle to the act. Her lip sync is athletic. 19-Jun-2019
Matrix Reloaded, The (2003)
Amped up but incomplete. 12-Jun-2019
Waiting To Exhale (1995)
The film traverses the illusions concocted and destroyed in the relationship jungle. The men are sadistically hot and the women abduct us bringing forth what we most love of their essence. 02-Jun-2019
Blume In Love (1973)
A man thinks he can redeem his indiscretions by realizing his wife is the love of his life. The women keep it real, the story never flinches and George Segal keeps it nervously serial. The outcome is so fucked up it loses its purpose. 14-May-2019
Ben Is Back (2018)
A Mother's Day Celebration card. Roberts is luminous lending artistic strength to a mother's compassion and struggle to save her addicted son. Her heart is her valor. Lucas Hedges adds fatigue to the privileged son who defies the comfort his family provides. He suddenly awakes to redemption while implicating everything he cared about. 05-May-2019
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Cavalcade of superheroism, delineation and valediction of character, celebratory milestones and sentimental affection. CGI triumphs achieving Hulk fuckability and Thor squishiness. A rousing crowd pleaser. 04-May-2019
Key, The (1958)
Heroic men accepting military suicide missions during WWII. Sophia provides the wife they would never know and a facsimile of a home, in return, she gets to eat. The stars lush blowing every romantic nuance onto the screen. 12-Apr-2019
Middle Of The Night (1959)
He's an old codger chasing love, she's the beauty of youth that may never love but will be loved. Each side is insightful, frustrating and climactic. Frederic March beats his heart as many times as Kim Novak excites it. 06-Apr-2019
Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969)
Daring to deconstruct the parameters we set in relationships and sex. The foursome glow exploring sexual hypocrisies and reciting the truth no one wants to hear. 24-Mar-2019
Mars Needs Moms (2011)
The idea may need patchwork but the presentation is a realistic animated joy. The heart beats when the art moves forward. 18-Mar-2019
Before Night Falls (2000)
A writer depicting the beauty of life is impaired from enjoying it due to oppressive politics and human tragedy. Schnabel practices skittishly and misses cultural opportunities but punches the story forward. Except for Depp's drag, the cameos resist the film's realism. Antonio is gay function, survivalist and poetically melodious. He sells it...and Martinez doesn't hurt. 09-Mar-2019
Period of Adjustment (1962)
The utters of Fonda and Hutton chanted high. Tony Franciosa kept the octaves low and his charisma forward. John McGiver sets and Mabel Albertson resists becoming the in-law stereotype. They glorified it. Lois Nettleton steals it because she could.
Marriage is deemed a terror, everyone screams their heads off until a surprise gift changes it. It has a loud message but you can still hear it.
Unfortunately, George Roy Hill's absurdity didn't allow Tennessee to be tragic. It's what the writer did best. 03-Jan-2019
