LOCKED DOWN

“Screenwriter Knight smartly caters the role to everything at which Hathaway excels. Linda is type-A, buttoned-up and wild at heart, over-talking her way through sanctimonious speeches with a rigid physicality that keeps getting distracted and going all slinky whenever her lusty eyes light up. I’d kill to see her play Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing.” – North Shore Movies, 01/15/2021

INTRODUCING THE BRATTLITE

“The new platform launches with a quartet of films belatedly celebrating the 2020 centenary of Federico Fellini, introducing a sparkling new restoration of his playful, penultimate film, Intervista. In conjunction, the Brattlite is offering internet exclusive screenings of two of the director’s earliest efforts, where we can see his signature style beginning to take shape.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 01/13/2021

STALLONE: FRANK, THAT IS

“Stallone spills his saga with a breathtaking lack of self-awareness and the undisguised mean streak of the perpetually aggrieved. I suppose there’s something potentially tragic about a less-talented little brother feeling forever outshined, but the documentary is just a giant whine. It’s 73 minutes of Fredo’s ‘I’m smart and I want respect!’ speech from Godfather II.” – North Shore Movies, 01/11/2021

PIECES OF A WOMAN

“After fifteen years of hotshot young directors ripping off Alfonso Cuarón’s battle sequences from Children Of Men, apparently now they’ve moved on to stealing the stillbirth scene from Roma? I suppose one can admire the technical bravado required to choreograph the 1917 of crib death while also wondering why such a thing would be necessary.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 01/07/2021

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MINUTES BONUS EPISODE: THESE ARE NOT VERY BRIGHT GUYS

Just when he thought he was out, breaking news compelled my buddy Blake Howard to revive his podcast so we could discuss the unfathomable idiocy of Donald Trump’s call commanding Georgia’s Secretary of State to commit election fraud. We also talked about The Irishman and Godfather III, because that’s what Blake and I do. All The President’s Minutes, 01/04/2021
