    Review: Dom Hemingway

    Friday, April 11, 2014

    There hasn’t been an actor playing this “against type” since Bill Murray as FDR. In Dom Hemingway Jude Law stars as a blustery Cockney smart-ass safe-cracker with bad teeth and a few extra pounds on his gut. Law, usually solidly cerebral (the excellent Side Effects, Anna Karenina), here is big on balls and small on […]

    Review: Nymphomaniac: Part Two

    Friday, April 4, 2014

    Ever the tricky jokester, Lars Von Trier mixes it up in his two-part opus, Nymphomaniac. The grandiloquent literary and fly fishing allusions of Nymphomaniac Part One and its hand-in-hand farcical shadings yield in Part Two to a much more somber tone. Sadomasochism rises to the fore as soon as you can say 50 Shades of […]

    Review: Cesar Chavez

    Friday, March 28, 2014

      Diego Luna’s Cesar Chavez glosses over some rather important aspects of the underlying essence of its subject matter. Although admirable in taking the course of the biopic Lincoln versus, say Mandela, in keeping its scope focused on a narrow swath of time, it fails to go deep in portraying the great 1960s labor organizer. […]

Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson prefers not to enter himself into a particular time and place unless he’s able to twist and turn his subject until it’s ready to fit into HIS world. In The Grand Budapest Hotel, his eighth and best feature, his enchanting stylization rises to a level of obsessiveness that bodes well for the adventurous […]

Review: The Bag Man

John Cusack and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day may have been an apt title for Cinedigm’s new slow-burn thriller The Bag Man. Starring as the decidedly undescriptively named “Jack,” Cusack kills or is almost killed by nearly every character in this movie, and little of it is his own fault. He must […]
