MOVIE: AMY

By | July 20th, 2015|Documentary, Movies, Musicals|2 Comments

AMY—the searing new documentary about the incandescent, singer songwriter Amy Winehouse is so viscerally and intellectually alive, it’s as if she’s been conjured up again and we’ve had to suffer the loss of her for the first time. The film by award-winning British filmmaker Asif Kapadia gets to the heart and soul, skin and bones [...]

MOVIE: THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL

By | March 12th, 2015|Comedy, Drama, Movies, Musicals, Romance|1 Comment

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is definitely second best--as most sequels are, but this cast and locale still manage to make the film a delightful, if passing, fancy. Richard Gere in the mix (yes, the hunk is getting on) adds an extra bit of spice. The old gang has returned, an elderly but colorful band of wandering misfits who have taken up [...]

MY TEN BEST MOVIES OF 2014!

By | January 1st, 2015|Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Kids, Movies, Musicals, Romance, Theater|7 Comments

 BOYHOOD: Richard Linklater's extraordinary "12 years a film" feat! He directed the same cast over a dozen years and captured the ephemeral truth about one boy's childhood and growing up in a broken home. It's a "meta" experience for filmgoers who watch the actors and the characters they play, age on camera over time, while the boy played by the soulful Ellar Coltrane--expressive and [...]

MOVIE: WHIPLASH

By | November 19th, 2014|Drama, Movies, Musicals|2 Comments

The film hits you like a slap in the face. WHIPLASH is not just the name of Hank Levy's eccentrically metered jazz tune, but it describes the dangerous dynamic between a young drummer Andrew (Miles Teller) and his bullying instructor Fletcher (J.K. Simmons) at an exclusive music conservatory. Andrew takes a licking and keeps on ticking in one of [...]
