MOVIES: “THE MAURITANIAN”/ “LAND”

By |2021-03-06T16:44:55-04:00March 6th, 2021|Drama, Movies, Thriller|0 Comments

Some movies are torture. "Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar" is like jumping off a comedy cliff and finding yourself forever cringing in the world where jokes never land. Even Kristen Wiig can't save you. Some movies are about torture. THE MAURITANIAN is a film that doesn't tell us anything we didn't already [...]

MOVIES OVERLOOKED: BORAT/DAVID COPPERFIELD/THE CLIMB

By |2021-01-11T18:14:34-04:00January 11th, 2021|Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Kids, Movies|0 Comments

Happy New Year one and all.  As I write this, I am consumed by so much raw emotion--outrage, disgust, sadness, cautious optimism, disbelief, frustration--that I have hardly been able to focus on writing movie reviews. It's difficult to pull myself away from the nightmare still unfolding. I am holding my breath in the days leading [...]
