Norman

The subtitle of “Norman” is “The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer.” The results of that subtitle are weird, honest, comical, and riveting on all accounts. It features one of the best ensembles in one of… Read More ›

The Lost City of Z

“The Lost City of Z” doesn’t just show the characters exploring new jungles; it shows the challenges and fundings of those explorations. Writer/director James Gray, in probably his best film to date, has shown us the beauty of nature, the… Read More ›

Gifted

Man, these number movies these days are really inspiring and smart. “The Wolf of Wall Street” spent our money on cocaine and sex; “The Accountant” managed to combine Autism, math, and criminals very well; and “Hidden Figures” deserved to be… Read More ›

The Zookeeper’s Wife

I assume older audiences will be seeing “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” and why wouldn’t they? WWII dramas (with or without battles) manage to tell such fascinating and yet true stories, and Jessica Chastain has barely made a bad movie in her… Read More ›

A United Kingdom

I liked both movies, but I felt “A United Kingdom” was more challenging than “Loving.” Both these movies involve mixed marriages at the worst possible time periods. This one, set in 1947, involves the first Botswana President and a white… Read More ›

Gold

Here is “Gold,” another money-obsessed drama, which may have the potential to rank with Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” but atlas, becomes a dull, generic bio. It starts off well with a would-be businessman named Kenny Wells (Matthew… Read More ›

The Founder

Unless Oscars contenders get expanded, it is very uncommon for great movies to pop up in January, and “The Founder” indicates that 2017 could be a great year for movies. I hate McDonald’s, but “I’m Loving” this movie for its… Read More ›
