It was a notably lackluster year for movies. I searched in vain all last spring and most of the summer for something exciting, challenging, beautiful to see. It wasn't until this fall that a tidal wave of smart, absorbing, artful films were released before awards season, and I did my best to stay afloat in [...]

This is my favorite film of 2019 and it opened on Christmas Day, the best gift at the movies I've received all year. I have been walking around with it in my head and heart ever since I saw it at a critics' screening a few weeks ago: LITTLE WOMEN based on Louisa May Alcott's [...]

"I heard you paint houses." It's an ominous line uttered in the first hour of the film, and the title of Charles Brandt's best-selling biography of the "housepainter" who may have killed Jimmy Hoffa, on which the film is based. My father actually did paint houses, and died of a heart attack while doing so. [...]

No doubt you've seen my review of PARASITE,  the most well-conceived, executed, and surprising movie out there now, but here's my take on a few more--worthy in whole, in part, or not at all...

It's all in the title: PARASITE, a meticulously calibrated, razor sharp masterpiece of humor, horror, and social commentary from Korean writer/director Bong Joon-Ho. "Parasite" which won the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2019-- and the first Korean film to win that honor--subverts all your expectations as it innocently works its way into your psyche. [...]
