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 [...]

The movie event I live for ALL year is happening this weekend! The host-less 92nd Oscars are set to air this Sunday night, February 9 on ABC @8PM!!  I love the sartorial splendor, the rhetorical blunders, the offhand quips, and above all, Brad Pitt. Who is bound to win. He's won everything else, including our [...]

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 [...]

MOVIE: “LITTLE WOMEN” Rule.

By |2020-01-01T23:44:09-04:00January 1st, 2020|Drama, Family, Movies, Romance|0 Comments

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 [...]

MOVIE/ THE IRISHMAN–Requiem For A Heavy

By |2020-01-07T13:55:50-04:00November 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 |2019-10-23T16:56:49-04:00October 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 [...]
