As you all very fine ladies and gentlemen must all must know by now (since I’ve pretty much hammered it into your collective heads), it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions in order to see what folks like myself think will happen this winter, but it’s a whole[...]

“The Florida Project” is one of the year’s best films

The most affecting movies tend to sneak up on you. In the case of The Florida Project, Sean Baker’s new film has been steadily building buzz since the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Still, when I got to see it back in August, there was no way to predict how much[...]

Trailer for “Wonder Wheel” showcases one of Woody Allen’s most visual efforts to date

It’s no secret that these days we get one new Woody Allen movie a year. The thing is, usually it’s been a summer release, piggybacking off of a debut at the Cannes Film Festival. Sometimes in this modern era, they become Oscar winners, like Blue Jasmine, Midnight in Paris, or[...]

“Blade Runner 2049” and “Jigsaw”: Films to see in October

“American Made” puts Tom Cruise back into the world of biopics

Every decade or two, Tom Cruise seems to be compelled to take part in a biopic. Back in the late 80’s, it was his Academy Award nominated turn in Born on the Fourth of July. About 20 years later, it was Valkyrie. Now, this week sees him back playing a[...]

Liam Neeson is a different kind of hero in “Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House”

Ever since Liam Neeson began kicking ass with the Taken franchise, he has been seen as an unusual action hero. A number of genre efforts (plus sequels to Taken) later, and Neeson kicks ass much more these days than anything else. This week, however, Neeson has a vehicle to display[...]
