'Suburbicon': Where Seldom Is Heard a Tolerant...

Here, in a rare departure of form, though co-writing and producing, they've chosen George Clooney to direct what nonetheless bears their unique signature. While I've dubbed the crime story "Fargo Light," it's far from their best effort. click for more

'Victoria and Abdul': The Queen and I

In this sweet, nicely filmed tale based on the actual relationship England's Queen Victoria had late in life with her Muslim Indian servant, Abdul Karim, oodles of feel-good charm temporarily anoint an egalitarian salve to a sense of fairness long abraded by social Darwinism. click for more

'Professor Marston and the Wonder Women': La...

What immediately came to mind as the fascinating biopic unreeled, beginning with Dr. William Moulton Marston's days as a heralded psychology professor, was how many second-tier, illustrious people there are: folks who did something major, but who are now all but forgotten. click for more

'Blade Runner 2049': Virtual Truth & Justice

This is not a pretty picture. Yet for all its shortcomings, "Blade Runner 2049" is at very least an emissary of the common sense that those powers that be would, in the name of financial profit, obstruct us from employing. There is no sun visible through the ubiquitous filter of pollution. It's all... click for more

'Battle of the Sexes': We've Come a Long Way, Baby

While anthropologists and social historians might disagree upon the actual turning point in American chronology when it became obvious that Women's Lib would become not just a hopeful wish, but a manifest imperative, "Battle of the Sexes" aptly celebrates the idea. click for more

'Brad's Status': What's It All About, Alfie?

Written and directed by Mike White, Brad's travail is entertaining in that alternately painful and bittersweet way, when divulged truths show us what's really important. Indeed, most of us are destined to crush our souls in the crucible of experience and deep introspection before arriving at those long sought, wise decisions.

'Mother!': Oh, Brother!

This is sinister stuff, intentionally as well as through the error of its haughty self-indulgence. Oh, dear reader be cautious. It starts out with intriguing eeriness ... even a bit Hitchcockian. No offense, Master. But that's just to suck you into its ugly movie Hell.

Citizens Continue to Protest Berkshire Museum Art...

Sharon Gregory has reviewed more than a decade of the Berkshire Museum's financials and says the situation isn't nearly as dire as the organization says. And Gregory isn't just anybody, she is someone with 40 years of financial experience. She retired as the vice president of business development and planning for Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, and before that worked with a number of organizations such as Lehman Brothers and Citibank.

'Tulip Fever': When Speculation Was in Bloom

A fascinating backdrop for an intricate if not convoluted, seriocomic love story that could have very well been written by Nöel Coward gives director Justin Chadwick's "Tulip Fever" an arthouse cachet. But while patience is a virtue, the esoteric appeal of this costumed affair set in 17th-century Holland may require more virtue than the general moviegoer wishes to expend.

World-Class Architect Climbs Aboard Model Railroad...

For the governors and Krens, this is a bit of "unfinished business" dating back to 1988 to pump economic activity into the state's smallest city.

'Wind River': Opens the Floodgates of Indignation

Be warned, this is tough viewing. In service to its ugly divulgences, there are few punches pulled. Though billed as an action mystery, this is actually horror ... not about zombies or monsters manufactured in laboratories by mad scientists, but the real-life horror that has been perpetuated by human monsters.
