WONDER WHEEL

“Such self-plagiarism is nothing new for Woody Allen, who these days mostly seems to be mixing and matching scenes and themes from his previous pictures more out of habit than inspiration. Wonder Wheel runs down a checklist of the filmmaker’s tired pet obsessions while occasionally playing like a parody of post-war Broadway miserabilism.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 12/07/2017

THE BREADWINNER

“The evocative animation sticks to bold, simple line drawings, my favorite design belonging to a massive hulk of an adult figure who becomes an unlikely ally to Parvana. I was captivated by how much director Twomey is able to convey by the fashion in which he slices fruit, a pause in his process bringing one of the film’s most unexpected emotional payoffs.” – North Shore Movies, 12/07/2017

DO YOU STILL LIKE THEM APPLES: GOOD WILL HUNTING AT 20

“You look at every role and everybody gets their big monologue, their show-stopping piece. It’s how you write a script when you want to attract big stars. You have Robin Williams on the bench, Minnie Driver talking about her dad, everyone gets their Oscar clip. It also created this ridiculous Boston caricature that only two guys from Cambridge could write.” – Boston.com, 12/05/2017

THE DISASTER ARTIST

“It’s very entertaining, borrowing bits of Bowfinger and of course Ed Wood while putting a happy face on our misfit moviemakers and their oversized dreams. What it doesn’t do is probe the darkness bubbling underneath all the bungling. The movie meticulously re-creates The Room’s most famously botched scenes, but shies away from its tortured soul.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 12/01/2017
