MOVIE/ THE IRISHMAN–Requiem For A Heavy

By |2019-11-22T23:37:50-05:00November 22nd, 2019|Drama, Movies|0 Comments

"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... These films represent my wide-ranging interest in all kinds of movies, even as fewer and fewer of them are now playing [...]

MOVIE: PARASITE

By |2019-10-23T16:56:49-05:00October 22nd, 2019|Drama, Horror, Movies, Thriller|3 Comments

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. [...]

AT LAST!  The juvenile, CGI-infested, big screen parade of sequels and blockbuster money grabs masquerading as movies have released their chokehold on the marketplace-- and the real movie season has begun! FALL brings serious, smart, entertaining, varied, challenging adult fare to movie theaters and I look forward to stimulating viewing instead of sinking into a [...]

MOVIE: “Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood”

By |2019-07-29T12:44:29-05:00July 27th, 2019|Action & Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Epic & Historical, Fantasy, Movies, Thriller|0 Comments

ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD is easily THE film of the summer, the year thus far, and maybe the decade. It's a climactic showstopper of an achievement, Quentin Tarantino's avowed penultimate 9th movie, a full-to-bursting valentine to movie-making and movie stars, his native Los Angeles, and an industry mirroring the turbulence of a culture [...]

OK.  The big night is upon us and it's the wild west out there. Not just the Kevin Hart controversy; the cutting telecast categories controversy; the "only Gaga/Kendrick Lamar can sing" controversy; the "popular" movie category controversy; but also that crazy slate of Best Picture nominees with no front runner! Well, the final ballots are [...]

SO many excellent films came out at the 11th hour-- meaning not until FALL  2018 (ridiculously late I might add), that it has taken me until now to see all the good stuff. Here is a list of my TOP TEN favorite films of 2018.  Many of these films allowed us to see ourselves in [...]
