Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

The chief source of enjoyment from watching a Borat skit (or movie) is seeing how “normal” people, caught in a bizarre situation, attempt to extricate themselves from embarrassing circumstances. It’s Candid Camera on LSD. The first Borat...

Witches, The

Once upon a time, Robert Zemeckis was a visionary filmmaker. His early resume reads like a list of well-remembered classics: Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump, The Polar Express… But Zemeckis has fallen on hard times a...

Rebecca

1940’s Rebecca was the only Alfred Hitchcock-directed film to win a Best Picture Oscar. Considering the filmmaker’s incredible body of work, that may seem odd, but it’s as much a testimony to the popularity of the source material, Daphe ...

Honest Thief

It’s probably fair to say that Liam Neeson could do this role in his sleep. Perhaps that would explain the curious lack of energy not only in his performance but in the production as a whole. Ever since Neeson became accepted as an action st...

Trial of the Chicago 7, The

The events depicted in The Trial of the Chicago 7 occurred in 1968-69. Aaron Sorkin began working on the screenplay in 2007. But, oh how relevant the story chronicled in this movie feels today... What is it that George Santayana wrote in The L...

Nocturne

If there’s one adjective I overuse when discussing Blumhouse movies, it’s “uneven,” and I’m going to apply it again with Nocturne, a horror film that grafts a Faustian plot element onto a story about sibling rivalry. Take away the su...

War with Grandpa, The

Robert De Niro has made his share of nearly-unwatchable comedies so, although it’s tempting to say The War with Grandpa is the worst, I can’t say that definitively. It is, however, bad enough to deserve consideration for that dubious disti...

Forty-Year-Old Version, The

As one might deduce from its cheeky title, The Forty-Year-Old Version, Radha Blank’s feature debut, isn’t afraid to challenge sacred cows along the way to making its point and, more importantly, telling a story. The film works on two level...

Rainy Day in New York, A

It’s past time for Woody Allen to go gently into retirement. The Oscar-winning director, having made some of the 20th century’s most memorable comedies, has nothing left to prove and his recent output is indicative of someone with no more sto...
