Chaperone, The

Despite being blessed with well-designed period sets and top-tier acting, this collaboration between Downton Abbey writer Julian Fellowes and director Michael Engler fails to take flight. I’m not one who normally issues demerits for a slow p...

Wonder

At the risk of being called a curmudgeon, let me voice a dissenting opinion about Wonder, a “family drama” that veers too far into saccharine fantasy for its messages about tolerance and anti-bullying to sound a clear and genuine note. Oh,...

Fences

On reason behind the so-called “whitewashing” of the 2016 Oscars was too few roles of substance in major productions for actors of color. This year’s roster of awards contenders has taken substantial steps to address this issue. Now...

American Ultra

Quentin Tarantino didn't originate the method of blending extreme violence with dark comedy but his early films (especially Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction) popularized it for today's generation. Since the early 1990s, many directors have att...

Enough Said

Enough Said is a maddeningly uneven dramatic comedy from writer/director Nicole Holofcener, whose previous efforts have shared the tone and a few of the themes with this one. The film's dramatic underpinning and the way it addresses impending empty...

Words, The

Nicholas Sparks wasn't involved with the development of The Words, but he might as well have been. There's a distinctly "Sparks-ian" feel to the movie, and its awkward framing device recalls the one from The Notebook. In fact, structure more than t...
