Platform, The (2020)
It makes sense in the confines of the story but it's pretty preposterous without a big world picture. It's vile, claustrophobic and exhausting. 30-Mar-2020
Love Witch, The (2016)
I did a double take when I realized the film wasn't set in the cheesy 60's gothic era. The women are dead ringers for the pristine beauty of that time and the daddies are porn succulence. The witch is a backwards feminist, desperate for love but her potions and sex stratagems only work precoital. Love turns men into quivering slobbering mush as the witch becomes vexed and resentful. The film is experimental, nonsensical and devoid of magic. 15-Mar-2020
A vague bad trip made sillier by insignificant EFX. Even though his American accent was flawless, McGregor was clamping down so hard on his own that he lost his squishiness. Ryan Gosling hadn't found his squish yet... he was a serious actor. His blank stares were very blank. They gave little credence to Naomi Watts' character except to provide her great face at the end. 08-Mar-2020
Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood (2019)
I no longer squirt for QT unhinged idiosyncrasies. Talky, boring and pointless. 23-Feb-2020
Recall, The (2017)
Wesley Snipes' character makes no sense and serves little purpose except to initiate coincidental saves. The aliens are underwhelming compared to its rip counterparts. The only injection of interest occurs at end where the film should have started. 22-Feb-2020
Honey Boy (2019)
Strange and toxic father/son relationship that propels the son's art. I don't understand why dad is a celebration and why Labeouf etches a dad from sketch comedy that diffuses further elaboration. He sounds like he never heard his dad talk. The film wrangles attention but delivering a statement that life's questions are easily answered, disavows the message just so it can temporarily cut the pain. 09-Feb-2020
Midnight Movie: The Killer Cut (2008)
In order for a viewer to digest mumbo jumbo we need to be privy to the rules. The film concocts it and we decide if it is within the realm of possibility so we can view the art piece with tolerance. No rules were established and the filmmaker refused to reserve a coherent explanation. It was remastered to look sharper but not sound brighter. 03-Feb-2020
Beach Rats (2017)
The lengths gay boys will meander to discharge closeted sex and remain doped. A waste of pretty with nothing relevant to say. 29-Dec-2019
Postcards From London (2018)
Whores assessing that man needs art to turn on. It's an excuse for filmic art to celebrate human art (Harris Dickinson) but it doesn't know how. 03-Jan-2020
Eyes Of My Mother, The (2016)
The film adds no psychological perception of its theme. The director contributes affecting shots but the scares arise from unbound cruelty. 26-Dec-2019
Venus In Furs (1969)
Hot stuff (James Darrin) obsesses over dead girl. Like the drugged out haze it was written and directed in, the film lingers on aspects that make it boring. It was bold to include an interracial couple and lesbians romping freely but the sex scenes consisted of a man's back against a woman's catlike nails on repetition. Giving Barbara McNair the insufferable title song hurt her vocal chords and our ears. By the end, you'll feel as misplaced as James Darrin. 20-Dec-2019
Daughters Of Darkness (1971)
Newlyweds get their honeymoon interrupted by voracious lesbians. It's mystery stays locked until the end, probably so we don't question how illogical it is. The protagonists keep it sexually charged and violently demeaning. 18-Dec-2019
Ready Or Not (2019)
Why in-laws don't have an official holiday celebration. It quick starts with ease and foreboding with Samara Weaving transitioning from blushing bride to Harley Quinn but it fails to stay on track and the payback doesn't live up to its promise. If the groom had been unaware and a convincing price tag applied to the hunt it would have curtailed the buffoonery. 15-Dec-2019
Hypnotically rendered but the message doesn't stretch past religious privilege, perversity, addiction and violence. The emotions are vacant and no one has a built-in fight in them. 04-Dec-2019
Terminal Man (1974)
Adding a computer to a killer's brain was supposed to rehabilitate him. It was progressive. It had a prominent female doctor and a black magician's assistant.
Joan Hackett was an accomplished Sarah Paulson without the amount of accolades.
George Segal was dumbfounding, cringingly stamping the mediocrity evident in the poor treatment of a great story. 22-Nov-2019
