Review: STRICTLY BALLROOM
Not all that different from Baz Luhrmann’s later films, but more heartfelt and effortless in a way.
Quick Take: DON’T WORRY DARLING
The ending may be sloppily conceived, but its visual style and thrills make it worth a look.
Quick Take: JOYCE CAROL OATES: A BODY IN THE SERVICE OF MIND
Joyce Carol Oates’s literary gifts are front and center, but her quietly charming personality is another reason to see the film.
Review: MILLER’S CROSSING
As the story unfolds, one’s attention never wavers.
Quick Take: PINOCCHIO
Doesn’t have enough original ideas in terms of story, visual design (and new songs for that matter) to make anyone care.
Review: FIRE OF LOVE
A film that entertains and educates, while its love story is inspiring, even provocative, I’m sure, to some people.
Review: BETTER CALL SAUL
Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn in particular deserved recognition for their incredible performances as codependent con men.
Quick Take: SAMARITAN
OK action, but too bland to get anyone excited.
