AMERICAN MADE

“A rip-roaring romp through the Reagan administration’s many foreign policy malfeasances and misdeeds. The satirical masterstroke is casting Cruise as the blithely amoral hustler at its center. It’s a grand performance of toothy grins, aw-shucks charm and movie star magnetism. Barry’s so much fun to watch you keep forgetting he’s one of the bad guys.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/29/2017

STRONGER

“At its best the film recalls late-period Eastwood pictures like Flags Of Our Fathers and American Sniper, plumbing the gulf between truth and what people need to hear. Last year’s despicable movie star auto-fellatio Patriots Day invented a phony hero to save the day, Stronger reminds us tragedy is a lot more complicated than a bumper-sticker slogan.” – North Shore Movies, 09/26/2017

THE SOMERVILLE THEATRE’S 2ND ANNUAL 70MM & WIDESCREEN FESTIVAL

IMG_3468

“We gotta mix it up. We leaned heavily on the classics last year, and I think next year we probably will return to a little bit more of that. If we get a lot of people for Top Gun or Wonder Woman and ten of them come back to see Cleopatra then my job is done. I’ve continued to keep these important movies in the consciousness.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/20/2017

TILDA SWINTON: WORLD’S GREATEST ACTRESS

IMG_3450

“‘Tilda Swinton is simply one of the most mercurial and indelible screen performers of our age,’ says the Brattle’s creative director Ned Hinkle, via email from the Toronto Film Festival. ‘She fits neither the definition of movie star nor the definition of character actor. I think she’s a very unique performer and also, in a real way, a cinema artist.'” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/14/2017
