If it doesn’t find its niche in theaters, it will certainly surface again in the home video market and become a favorite for Christmases to come.

Reasonably faithful to the source material while at the same time existing as a direct sequel to Kubrick’s adaptation.

Falls afoul of tonal inconsistencies which can be especially detrimental in a story with its roots so deeply embedded in an abhorrent historical episode.

Just as many of the director’s previous efforts have defied pigeonholing, "Parasite" delights in ping-ponging from one genre to another, defying expectations along the way.

Feels like an echo of "T2," doing many of the same things and offering similar narrative perturbations but without the verve of the earlier movie.

By blending facts, myths, and made-up material, Lemmons weaves a strong, engaging tale but there’s a sense of a missed opportunity to do something grander.

"Tokyo Story" is as much a journey of discovery as it is an opportunity to reflect. The characters populating this film aren’t strangers. They are our parents, our children, ourselves.

A solid re-examination of a bygone era and genre with a strong performance of a character worthy of biopic treatment.
