NASHVILLE SCENE FILM POLL 2016

“I left a press screening of Hacksaw Ridge four times to complain about the masking. AMC’s reps told me they were ‘working on it and it will be fixed soon.’ They also told another one of my colleagues, ‘Sorry, it’s broken and can’t be fixed.’ This is just how things are now. Chains project movies improperly and straight-up lie to customers. Nobody gives a shit.” – Nashville Scene, 01/05/2017

THE FIVE BEST FILMS OF 2016

MBTS_1545.CR2

“The funniest movie ever made about grieving and the saddest movie ever made about the North Shore. Casey Affleck delivers a performance of such private, inarticulate heartbreak it rivals Heath Ledger’s iconic turn in Brokeback Mountain, throwing up emotional walls that keep getting knocked down by a world that stubbornly refuses to stop spinning.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 12/26/2016

THE FIVE BEST FILMS OF 2015

Bridge Of Spies

“Off-handedly virtuosic and destined to be underrated. Too bad, because the film is full of tough stuff and asks questions I haven’t seen answered very well on debate stages lately, particularly about what it means to be an American during wartime, and how many of our founding principles we are willing to trade just because we’re scared.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 12/29/2015
