Like everyone, I've been re-inventing my life virtually and on the lookout for things to circulate on social to help and entertain and spice things up and make us laugh.  But I also need to keep moving, and I hate, repeat HATE to exercise.  However,  I love to dance. THIS VIDEO got me out of [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

I love this annual marathon meeting-- our 38th-- of the BOSTON SOCIETY OF FILM CRITICS to decide our year end faves! We voted the "Best" in 15 categories topped by our BEST FILM of the year: the stunning IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK written and directed by Barry Jenkins, about a young African American couple in 1970's [...]

GAGA for GAGA: “A STAR IS BORN”

By |2018-10-09T22:35:55-04:00October 9th, 2018|Drama, Movies, Musicals, Romance|0 Comments

I knew he was good, but even from the trailer I could tell SHE was good too. What I couldn't tell was just HOW good they would be together. Writer/director/composer/star Bradley Cooper found his muse in singer/composer/performance artist Lady Gaga; their alchemy is what tethered me to this moving, though imperfect film, and [...]

MOVIES: BLACKkKLANSMAN & CRAZY RICH ASIANS

By |2018-08-25T12:18:17-04:00August 25th, 2018|Comedy, Drama, Epic & Historical, Movies, Romance, Thriller|2 Comments

The dog days of summer feature two movies based on books that require some navigation through PC muddied waters. BLACKkKLANSMAN is Spike Lee's take on the "true" tale of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, Denzel's son!) the first black detective on the Colorado Springs Police Force in the early '70's who infiltrates the Ku Klux [...]

MOVIE: ALWAYS AT THE CARLYLE

By |2018-05-18T20:25:21-04:00May 18th, 2018|Celebrity Interviews, Comedy, Documentary, Movies, Romance|0 Comments

The first few minutes of this documentary are a tribute to discretion: a montage of talking heads who refuse to talk--and as Diana Vreeland once said, "elegance is refusal." The very fact of this documentary verges on the indiscreet, but I forgave the indiscretion and am thrilled to have had a peek. This is a [...]
