MOVIE REVIEW: “ENOUGH SAID”

MOVIE REVIEW: “ENOUGH SAID”

Joyce Kulhawik September 30, 2013 3

I cannot say enough about ENOUGH SAID– one of the best films at the movies right now! It’s an authentic, charming, tenderly-acted but unsentimental tale about grown-ups falling in love. Yes– grown-ups, a pair

MOVIE REVIEW: PRISONERS

MOVIE REVIEW: PRISONERS

Joyce Kulhawik September 27, 2013 1

PRISONERS is one of the best films I’ve seen at the movies in weeks. It pops like a kernel in a myriad ways–full of nooks and crannies, threatening & thrilling, sad & shocking, and

AT THE MOVIES: BLUE JASMINE, ELYSIUM, 2 GUNS, WE’RE THE MILLERS, WOLVERINE

Joyce Kulhawik August 21, 2013 3

I have just seen the first OSCAR WORTHY performance by an actress this year– or any year: Cate Blanchett in BLUE JASMINE–Woody’s latest and absolutely one of his best films, ever. It’s become a

MOVIE: HYDE PARK ON HUDSON

Joyce Kulhawik December 8, 2012 0

In a season that features at least one remarkable presidential portrayal–here comes another, and this one  definitely the wackier.  An Irish/Englishman playing Lincoln is one thing, but America’s unofficial court jester and one time

MOVIE: ANNA KARENINA

Joyce Kulhawik December 3, 2012 0

 The most ravishing movie of the season is ANNA KARENINA , novelist Leo Tolstoy’s sweeping pageant of love, marriage, passion, family, God, nature, and the constraints of class and society in 19th century Russia.  The

MOVIE REVIEW: LINCOLN

MOVIE REVIEW: LINCOLN

Joyce Kulhawik November 8, 2012 2

I have seen LINCOLN– and he is Daniel Day-Lewis. This is an absolutely flawless performance, which together with Spielberg’s direction, Tony Kushner’s screenplay, based in part on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book TEAM OF RIVALS,

MOVIE REVIEW: FLIGHT

MOVIE REVIEW: FLIGHT

Joyce Kulhawik November 7, 2012 0

It’s hair-raising– but DON’T MISS this FLIGHT! It’s an unexpectedly emotional, quiet, faintly pious, but deeply engrossing dramatic thriller, which stars a slightly paunchy Denzel Washington as a veteran airline pilot named Whip Whitaker;

MOVIE REVIEW: ARGO

MOVIE REVIEW: ARGO

Joyce Kulhawik October 12, 2012 0

Ben Affleck has done it behind the camera again– directed a first rate thriller! It’s sleeker, sharper, and surer than his previous directorial work– and it’s already being touted as a possible Best Picture

MOVIE REVIEW: ARBITRAGE

Joyce Kulhawik September 17, 2012 1

If Richard Gere is up on the big screen–I’m watching. I’ve been smitten since his Armani-clad turn as an AMERICAN GIGOLO.  In ARBITRAGE, he’s grayer, still a sharp dresser– and still playing fast and
