Birth of a Nation, The

D.W. Griffith’s 1915 silent movie, The Birth of a Nation, remains one of the most controversial epics ever committed to film. The bold, innovative techniques employed by the director are offset by a repugnantly racist second half that depicts m...

Color Purple, The

Watching The Color Purple, there were times when the split personality was enough to pull me out of the experience. Musical stage adaptations of serious novels can sometimes work because of the immediacy of the audience and the reality of the ...

Drive-Away Dolls

When the Coen Brothers announced their (amicable) breakup following the release of The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, a great lamentation was heard throughout the population of cineastes. Of course, that wasn’t the end of the line for Joel and Ethan ...

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

With a standout final performance by Chadwick Boseman and equally arresting work by Viola Davis in the title role, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom gets the year’s award for least-likely title to vie for a ton of Oscar attention. Adapted from the ...

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts

In all fairness, I think I might have enjoyed this film if I was nine years old. As a much older man, however, “enjoyment” is far from what I experienced while enduring the two-hour slog of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. “Boredom” and �...
