CINEMA OF RESISTANCE: DO THE RIGHT THING AT THE HARVARD FILM ARCHIVE

IMG_3139

“It has always seemed to me that if Spike Lee had any idea how to solve the systemic problems and inherent conflicts of race and class then he wouldn’t have had to make a movie about them. What makes the film a masterpiece its depiction of a day during which everyone thinks they’re doing the right thing and everything still goes to hell anyway.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 07/03/2017

BABY DRIVER

“I found the movie’s slick, shiny surfaces entertaining to a point but once again wish this frustrating filmmaker would go as deep as his debut. He’s made enough movies about babies. Maybe the reason Hamm’s performance stands out so much is that he’s the first character in an Edgar Wright film who’s an actual adult.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 06/29/2017

“A larger-than-life collision of conflicting tones, gargantuan set-pieces and unsubtle social commentary, the film follows in the footsteps of the South Korean writer-director’s extraordinary English-language debut Snowpiercer with another series of hairpin stylistic curves and barn-sized performances, at once both heartbreaking and ghoulishly funny.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 06/28/2017

THE BAD BATCH

“It’s got vision and atmosphere to burn, yet feels strangely hollow and incomplete. Amirpour picks up characters and ideas only to drop them a few minutes later and go chasing after something else. The Bad Batch is the kind of oddity that arrives early in promising careers, leaving the viewer bewildered but nonetheless eager to see what comes next.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 06/23/2017
