INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE

image

“An insanely crummy-looking picture. Minus any movie stars and skimping on production values, it’s the off-brand blockbuster equivalent of shopping at the Dollar Tree. At least ninety percent of this movie appears to have been shot in front a greenscreen. Everybody’s backlit in cheapo digital with a sickly, algae-colored pallor, actors melting into murky backgrounds.” – North Shore Movies, 06/24/2016

DE PALMA

Brian DePalma and Bruce Springsteen at the filming of the video for Dancing in the Dark on 6/27/84 at the St. Paul Civic Center in St. Paul, Mn.

“One of the best movies ever made about making movies, this captivating new documentary from directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow is a hugely entertaining and long overdue celebration of a singular American artist. When it’s over you’ll see old pictures with new eyes.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 06/17/2016

A BIGGER SPLASH

“A loosey-goosey remake of the 1969 Alain Delon starrer La Piscine, it’s a throwback to when audiences flocked to European cinema in order to watch pretty people getting it on. Even art movies are so neutered these days that the cheerful erotic charge of A Bigger Splash feels like a UFO sighting. Filmmakers have forgotten that fornication can be fun.” – North Shore Movies, 06/17/2016
