Mystery

mother!

I saw “mother!” at special premiere at Radio City Music Hall, marking the first time I’ve been there (shocking you may think). Getting inside was crazy: lines, security, criticism (no outside food/beverages and feet off the seat). I was left… Read More ›

Wind River

Three years in a row, Taylor Sheridan has written such excellent screenplays for “Sicario,” “Hell or High Water,” and now this year, he has both written and directed “Wind River.” It’s not only a gorgeous picture, but also an intriguing… Read More ›
