“Ad Astra” Is Ambitious, Haunting, And Incredibly Moving

Tue, Sep 17 2019


James Gray never gets the acclaim that he deserves. For years, the filmmaker has been doing high quality work that repeatedly gets the short shrift. Especially with Two Lovers, the lack of love is just absurd. This week, however, he’s finally going to be on the radar of the masses, as his largest movie to date is opening in Ad Astra ... READ MORE

Yesterday, the Toronto International Film Festival handed out their awards. Notably, the Audience Award, which is the top prize at TIFF, went to Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit. The runner ups were, rather unsurprisingly, Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, as well as Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite. The win for Jojo Rabbit may surprise som ... READ MORE

Rich Performances Permeate Throughout “The Friend”

Fri, Sep 13 2019


It’s hard to find the right tone when telling a terminal illness tale. Over at the Toronto International Film Festival, The Friend was one of the world premieres and offers up a different way of telling a cancer drama. In part, by not focusing as largely on the patient, this is more about the human toll on family members. Moreover, ... READ MORE

An independent drama that contains a wholly lived in feel, there’s a vibe her that gets under your skin in the best way possible. Rather hypnotic in its soundscape and overa ... READ MORE

Jennifer Lopez Looks To Break Through To Oscar Voters With “Hustlers”

Wed, Sep 11 2019


For years, strippers have been depicted cinematically as damsels needing to be saved. In fact, movies have almost exclusively looked at sex workers as damaged individuals. Awards wise, it’s catnip for voters, by and large. The features themselves have been mostly heavy affairs, give or take something like Woody Allen’s Mighty ... READ MORE

How Serious An Awards Contender Is “Joker” After Its Venice Win?

Tue, Sep 10 2019


Over the weekend, something rather shocking happened at the Venice Film Festival. Yes, more shocking than a Grand Jury Prize going to Roman Polanski and his largely panned movie An Officer and a Spy (and even more surprising than another special prize going to the largely shrugged about American Skin from Nate Parker.) The coveted Golden ... READ MORE

“Freaks” Is An All Around Surprising Genre Effort

Mon, Sep 9 2019


Science fiction on a budget can be tricky sometimes to properly pull off. There are countless instances where not having the required resources can compromise an otherwise extravagant vision. However, there are also plenty of times where working without a ton of money can lead to extra creativity. Here, with Freaks, the small budget actua ... READ MORE
