Am hunkered down with lists of things to do that I just can't make myself DO. Cleaning...organizing (too listless). Reading (glued to online and TV coronavirus updates). Writing. OK. The next few weeks are going to be rough so "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night." Here are some tips to help [...]

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 [...]

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...
