FIRST MAN

“Chazelle diminishes one of humanity’s most astonishing accomplishments into the semi-suicidal refuge of a broken man who refuses to grieve. This dour, unpleasant film wallows in a masochistic self-abnegation similar to the director’s 2014 music school psychodrama Whiplash, except banging on astrophysics instead of drums.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 10/12/2018

A STAR IS BORN

“Particularly now, when the world is too much with us, it can be enormously cathartic to just go into a dark room and sob for a little while. Cooper’s confidently melodramatic remake of A Star Is Born understands this better than most pictures. It’s a big, brashly old-fashioned pop entertainment. This is the kind of movie everybody says they don’t make anymore.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 10/04/2018
