SPOILERPIECE THEATRE #107: JASON BOURNE, CAFE SOCIETY AND TALLULAH

image

Had a blast sitting in with fellow Boston Online Film Critics Association members Dave Riedel and Evan Crean to spoil this week’s new releases. I hadn’t seen Jason Bourne yet so I attempted to predict everything that happens in the movie. Later I tried to talk Woody Allen-hating Dave into seeing Cafe Society and of course we ended up discussing Wesley Snipes. Spoilerpiece Theatre, 07/29/2016

BACKUP BABIES WITH THE WRONG FACE: TALLULAH’S SIAN HEDER

image

“I like the idea that you can subvert that initial judgement and impression, and you can get to know people and fall in love with them and see their humanity. The idea I could do that with these three women in this film was exciting to me. The world is hungry for real women. Not movie women. We are complex people, and that needs to be shown.” – Boston Reel, 07/27/2016

CAFE SOCIETY

image

“It’s a strange picture. A melancholic dirge in the guise of a comic bauble, at once light as a feather and pitilessly sad, Café Society is Woody Allen’s best since Midnight In Paris. They’ll make a great double bill someday, both films interrogating a warm and fuzzy nostalgia that’s incredibly soothing and ultimately useless.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 07/22/2016

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE

Wilderpeople

“A boisterous outdoor adventure, nodding to influences from Up to The Blues Brothers while maintaining a distinctly funky vibe all its own. It has the stylized exaggerations and emotional directness of the best children’s literature. Everything is just a bit louder and more colorful than real life, but the feelings are straightforward and unadorned.” – North Shore Movies, 07/21/2016
