MOVIE: THE ACCOUNTANT– crunching more than numbers!

By | October 16th, 2016|Action & Adventure, Drama, Movies, Thriller|1 Comment

Ben Affleck as THE ACCOUNTANT is crunching more than numbers. This is a real departure for the actor as he brings to life an ass-kicking, Asperger's syndrome, math wiz working his way through an intense labyrinth of secrecy and surprise. The film is a refreshing and well-balanced mix of farflung elements: action, thriller, romantic comedy(!) family dysfunction, and a shout [...]

Thus, "The Girl on the Train" the movie, starring Emily Blunt and based on the runaway best seller by Paula Hawkins, was a complete surprise! The trailer is a grabber and I couldn't wait to see the film. When I did, [...]

A pair of movies now playing at a cineplex near you wear their agendas on their sleeves: each re-tells a true story, skewers its villains, and brings its audience right up close to the imagined scenes of the action whose outcome we already know. Director/co-writer Oliver Stone's SNOWDEN comes with a careful central performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden, computer wiz and infrastructure analyst for the National [...]

By | August 23rd, 2016|Documentary, Drama, Movies|1 Comment

The story of Kitty Genovese, a young woman who was stabbed to death in NYC over 50 years ago while 38 people did nothing-- still haunts us. But that's not what really happened. Nevertheless, that horrifying tale of urban apathy reverberated through a family, branded a neighborhood, indicted the media, tore a hole in our innocence, and embedded [...]

Hold onto your hats-- and your eardrums-- and prepare to laugh yourself silly!! Meryl Streep does it again, this time in a bravura "comedia-tura" performance as a real life "coloratura-challenged" heiress with a passion for grand opera, but no talent: FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS. Stephen Frears once again turns his attention to a strong female character [...]
