An Honest Liar will be screened at the Tribeca Film Festival 2014 in April. When it goes into wider distribution, I definitely want to see the whole film, but for now here’s a taste:
I saw the Noah movie. It’s bad. Really, really bad. It’s such a comedown from director Darren Aronovsky’s previous film, The Black Swan, which was really, really good. Where to start with Noah? How about with the gender stereotyping and racism? The … Continue reading
At The Los Angeles Times, Kenneth Turan describes it: The poised but emotional Lupita Nyong’o [of Twelve Years a Slave], the supporting actress winner with her first major role, was clearly transported by her victory but not so much that she didn’t … Continue reading
I saw Gravity, and plan to see it again before it leaves theatres. But it’s not a perfect movie. With its inane exchange of banter between the ground crew and astronauts at the beginning of the film, it gets off … Continue reading

This looks good and has gotten a lot of recent attention and critical acclaim. It has also generated controversy. It opens in New York and Los Angeles May 24, 2013. Directed by Rasha Burshtein, an Orthodox Jewish woman who lives … Continue reading
The Tree of Life director has a new film. Here’s the trailer.
The hard-to-please movie reviewer at The New Republic, David Thomson, calls Amour the best movie of the year. Here’s Thomson: Readers may say, “Well, you don’t like many films,” and they’d be right.

A documentary just released on DVD: __________ It puts one in mind of this:
The trailer has me on the fence, but intrigued.
The buzz around Cloud Atlas is pretty intense (it received a ten minute standing ovation at a recent film festival screening), and here are the film’s three directors–three!–doing a promo: __________ I’m certainly curious to see the film, but I … Continue reading
The creators of the 1992 film, Baraka, have produced a sequel. It’s due to hit select theatres August 24th. The trailer seems to “quote” Baraka way too much, though. I hope it’s sufficiently different from Baraka to make it worth … Continue reading
