COLUMBUS

IMG_3431

“Few films are as attentive to the spaces inhabited by their characters as Columbus. The screen is almost always broken up into frames inside of frames, favoring deep-focus shots in which foreground obstacles either wall these characters off from one another or isolate them together in a little box of their own, positioned against the rest of the world.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/07/2017

GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS

IMG_3409

“Like most comedy sequels, it cranks everything up a few notches thinking audiences won’t be satisfied unless they get a louder and more outrageous version of what they enjoyed last time. And like most comedy sequels, it’s pretty lousy. There’s nowhere for this movie to go except bigger, bloodier and more ridiculous. And believe me, it gets there.” – North Shore Movies, 09/01/2017

I DO… UNTIL I DON’T

IMG_3406

“The film’s farcical elements mostly fall flat, but there’s a kernel of truth here and a grit to the performances that survive the sometimes awkward screenplay. After an awfully rocky start, Bell eventually slows down the pace and lets her scenes breathe a bit. By the end I was surprised how much I’d come to care about these people.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 08/31/2017

GOOD TIME

IMG_3352

“An edgy, electrifying movie that feels a little bit dangerous. The Safdies score queasy laughs off of everyday prejudices and unquestioned assumptions, with our wily, dirtbag protagonist often eluding authorities by scapegoating innocent people of color unlucky enough to cross his path. If Good Time makes you uncomfortable, that’s because it’s supposed to.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 08/24/2017
