The Square – Review

21 hours ago

Julian (Dominic West) endures the actions of a performer named Oleg (Terry Notary), in Ruben Ostlund’s satire The Square. Photo courtesy of Magnolia Pictures (c).

Ruben Ostlund’s satire The Square was Cannes’ Palme D’Or winner this year but this ambitious film is a decidedly unusual winner. Ostlund’s previous film, Force Majeure, explored a single morally-bad choice in a caustically comic way. The Square turns a satiric eye on modern art, contemporary society, political correctness, homelessness, sex, income inequality and more, although it often focuses on the subject of trust. The Square, partly in English and partly in Swedish with subtitles, is sly, darkly satiric and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny film, when it is not just downright disturbing. This is not a film for everyone, but it has rewards for those up for its wild ride.

The story revolves around Christian (Claes Bang), the curator at a modern art museum in Sweden. »

Novitiate – Review

21 hours ago

Margaret Qualley as Sister Cathleen, in Novitiate. Photo courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics (c)

Novitiate focuses on a young woman preparing to become a nun in the early 1960s, just as the Catholic church is poised on the brink of the sweeping changes of Vatican II.

Maggie Betts wrote and directed this drama about a 17-year-old named Cathleen and her fellow novices as they move towards taking their first vows as nuns. It is certainly not the first film to give viewers a peek inside a convent as young women prepare for religious life, and, in fact, the film mentions the 1959 Audrey Hepburn film “A Nun’s Story. What makes this film different is that it takes place at a pivotal moment for the Catholic Church, just as the changes of Vatican II were being put in place. Catholics know what a radical shift Vatican II was. In its attempt to modernize the church, »

Justice League – Review

16 November 2017 11:05 PM, PST

Bruce Wayne is a rich man. He’s an aristocrat. Superman grew up as Clark Kent on a farm bailing hay, and he’s got a boss that shouts at him if he’s late to work. He’s actually more human.”

Grant Morrison

This quote from comic book legend Grant Morrison is what’s at the heart of the problem at why so many of the recent DC films have not worked and why so few have. It’s not that these films were missing the comedy aspect like some critics and fans have expressed. I think it’s more complex than just adding a few clever one-liners. As Grant Morrison suggests, these men and women aren’t just heroes that save the world.

Even though the Marvel formula has clearly worked for the studio, the answer to DC’s prayers isn’t that they need to resemble that formula. »

Wonder- Review

16 November 2017 9:40 PM, PST

 

While another bruising company of costumed heroes makes the walls vibrate in stereo at many theatres (actually in most of the screens at your local multiplex), a quieter, more gentle film is opening to give families a nice alternative. And it stars real flesh and blood actors rather than computer-generated characters. It’s based on the rare young adult novel that’s not set in a dystopian future. The beloved five year-old book offers another take on a tale as old as time, with themes that echo the live Beauty And The Beast from earlier in the year. Add a dash of The Elephant Man, a pinch of The Phantom Of The Opera, a sprinkle of Mask, toss it in a middle school (maybe cooked in a classic “Easy Bake Oven”) and film goers should savor this sweet, nourishing cinema dish all about a most unusual boy, who despite his »

Dwayne Johnson Stars In Rampage Trailer

16 November 2017 6:47 PM, PST

Global megastar Dwayne Johnson headlines the action adventure Rampage, directed by Brad Peyton.

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

Rampage opens in theaters beginning April 20, 2018.

Rampage also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (“Moonlight”), Malin Akerman (TV’s “Billions”), Jake Lacy (TV’s »

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer – Review

16 November 2017 5:20 PM, PST

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Yorgos Lanthimos seems to have one goal in mind and that is to open the collective hood of society and its institutions and slowly rip all of the parts out of it. In doing so, he creates nightmares for the modern age. How can we really know what love is when society is always insistent that it must be one thing, rather than the many that it is? What happens to the rigidity of societal values when they are matched up against the reality of the human condition? These two questions have been asked multiple times by Lanthimos and his writing partner Efthymis Filippou, mostly to comedic effect, and always excellently. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better run of films from two people other than the Coen’s, with Dogtooth, The Lobster, and The Killing of a Sacred Deer defining the careers of Lanthimos and Filippou. »

Lady Bird – Review

16 November 2017 3:57 PM, PST

 

Just a few weeks since Suburbicon arrived at the multiplex (and just as it heads to the “second-run” theatres), another film directed by an actor opens. That’s about all that the two flicks have in common. The thespian behind the camera this time is the talented Greta Gerwig. At the start of the new century she was dubbed by many as the new “indie queen” with her performances in several quirky low-budget films (most shot in the NYC area). In the last decade or so she’s had small roles in studio films (Jackie), but Ms. Gerwig’s heart seems to be with “underdog” cinema. On many of these projects she’s been stretching her creative muscles, first by writing many (two of her most acclaimed films were co-written with Noah Baumbach) and for one she co-directed with Joe Swanberg  (Nights And Weekends). This new release is her first (the first of many, »

Saving Brinton – Review

15 November 2017 7:36 PM, PST

Review by Roger Carpenter

It has been estimated that no less than 90% of silent films have been lost for all time.  This is partially due to the silver nitrate contained in early film stock, which is extremely flammable.  Entire film catalogs from some of the earliest production companies in existence were destroyed in warehouse storage fires as far back as the 1920’s. Other famous fires occurred as late as the 1960’s, destroying the only known prints of some silent films.  Another reason for the loss of these films is, quite simply, they were thought of as disposable.  During the silent era, especially in America, film wasn’t considered a legitimate art form.  Films were considered cheap entertainment, the bastard child of the more prestigious form of art known as theater.  Thus, some films were recycled by their own production companies for the valuable silver they contained while others were summarily »

Blood Feast – The Arrow Video Blu Review

13 November 2017 8:16 PM, PST

Review by Roger Carpenter

If you are a horror movie aficionado then no introduction is needed for Blood Feast, nor to the films of Herschel Gordon Lewis in general.  But just in case you’ve never heard of this pioneering no-budget epic, here’s a quick synopsis.  Blood Feast is the story of an Egyptian caterer, Fuad Ramses, who is into the dark arts and has a need for human body parts. It just so happens a series of gruesome killings of young women around town are occurring.  Detective Thornton, along with the help of the beautiful and unwitting Suzette Fremont, try to solve the case before every young co-ed in town disappears.  Blood Feast was a sensation when it was first released to the grindhouse/drive-in circuit in 1963.  Over the years it became the stuff of legend to horror fans everywhere with Fangoria magazine praising Lewis’ films in its pages, »
