OZYMANDIAS IN NEW JERSEY: REVISITING THE KING OF MARVIN GARDENS

“A monument to ruin, it’s one of those great, misshapen movies full of bizarre tonal shifts and strange directorial choices that don’t seem to make much sense in the moment but linger in your mind for months afterward. Pauline Kael called it ‘an unqualified disaster of the type that only talented people have.’ I think it might be something of a masterpiece.” – Crooked Marquee, 10/08/2021

NO TIME TO DIE

“The best Bond since Craig’s initial outing in Casino Royale, and the first since the character’s 2006 re-introduction to remember that these films are supposed to be funny. Thanks presumably to a well-publicized dialogue polish by Fleabag writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, No Time To Die is full of punchy, prickly banter and has a refreshing silly streak.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 10/07/2021

LAMB

“I’m not sure Lamb is ultimately about much beyond atmosphere and arresting visuals, but this hypnotic little whatzit from Reykjavik gets a lot of mileage out of a central visual gimmick so sublime it carries the film over a lot of dead air. Is the image of a baby sheep dressed in people clothes enough to sustain an entire movie? The answer might surprise ewe.” – North Shore Movies, 10/07/2021
