“Isle of Dogs” is Wes Anderson’s best film yet

This may be heresy to some, but up until now, I haven’t been that big of a Wes Anderson fan. The way that he sees the world warms many a heart, but often leaves me cold. Then, this happened. Merging stop motion animation with canines, he has a real winner.[...]

Films to look out for at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival

“Flower” features an awards worthy performance from Zoey Deutch

A breakthrough performance by a talented young actress is always a sight to behold. Last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, I saw Zoey Deutch own the screen in Flower. This independent picture has stayed with me for almost 12 full months, mainly due to Deutch’s captivating turn. She is[...]
