NORMAN: THE MODERATE RISE AND TRAGIC FALL OF A NEW YORK FIXER

IMG_3019

“The second hour keeps the camera locked firmly on Gere. We watch with morbid fascination as he talks up, down, around and in circles trying to stave off the inevitable. It’s a bravura turn made even more impressive when realizing his Woody Allen mannerisms should by all rights seem silly coming from such a handsome goy.” – North Shore Movies, 05/26/2017

IT IS HAPPENING AGAIN: THE RETURN OF TWIN PEAKS

IMG_2982

“This has never been a show for people who want answers or explanations. You’ve just gotta sit back and let the images and sounds wash over you. The two-hour season premiere somehow managed to feel both familiar and strange, putting friendly faces in frightening new contexts, at once sweetly nostalgic and starkly sinister. It’s a hell of a thing.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 05/22/2017

THEIR FINEST

IMG_2944

“As sure-footed and satisfying an entertainment as I’ve seen so far this year, Lone Scherfig’s backstage screwball romance set during the London Blitz balances ensemble comedy and wartime tragedy with sturdy, old-fashioned aplomb. It’s the kind of movie you can point to when people say they don’t make ‘em like they used to.” – North Shore Movies, 05/18/2017

THE DEATH OF LOUIS XIV

IMG_2997

“It’s an almost agonizingly quiet movie, but all that quiet is full of contemplation. The Death Of Louis XIV allows viewers room to bring their own baggage, time and space to meditate on how mortality one day comes for us all. If you can get on this film’s admittedly peculiar wavelength it attains a hypnotic quality, eliciting genuine sorrow.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 05/18/2017

DAVID LYNCH: THE ART LIFE

IMG_2955

“What David Lynch is not going to do is gum up the works with too much self-analysis, and he remains constitutionally opposed to interpreting his work for us. The documentary is the portrait of a content man, constantly at work on one project or another, interested mainly these days in artistic expression as its own reward.” – Boston Reel, 05/14/2017
