Two D

“This is a film of uncommon emotional directness, of simple truths presented unadorned. The Dardenne brothers have been cranking out one small-scaled social realist triumph after another with such clockwork regularity, it’s hard sometimes not to take them for granted, i.e. this being their first masterpiece since the last one.” – Movie Mezzanine, 12/23/2014

Annie 2

“I’m sad to report that Annie is fucking terrible. It’s listless and incompetently staged, the talented cast gasping away in a hermetic vacuum of dead air, snarky in-jokes, and limp musical numbers. The choreography is all flailing arms and rictus grins, running around in circles instead of actual dancing. I honestly started to feel sorry for these performers.” – Movie Mezzanine, 12/18/2014

Goodbye To All That

“Otto stumbles his way through raunchy mishaps of the suddenly single. He’s comically overwhelmed by all the no-strings hookups available to handsome, unattached guys his age now that everybody’s on the Internet. The movie might be overstating these a bit, and if it isn’t, then I’m moving to North Carolina.” – Movie Mezzanine, 12/17/2014
