Review: Woody Allen's "Wonder Wheel"
The great playwright Eugene O'Neil looms as large over Woody Allen's latest film as the giant Ferris wheel that dominates the movie's Coney Island setting. It's not exactly clear whether "Wonder Wheel " is an ambitious homage to O'Neil or a blatant theft of his work. Either way, it will be hard...

Review: Director Luca Guadagnino's "Call Me by Your Name"
The hours move slowly in "Call Me by Your Name ." It's summertime in Northern Italy in 1983 on a secluded 17th century villa, where life among the antiquities is beautifully tranquil and nothing is ever pressing. There is time to read the paper in the morning, while delicately picking at a soft-...

Review: Director Stephen Chbosky's "Wonder"
It’s hard for us cynical souls to walk into a movie advertised with the tagline “Choose kindness” and not shudder in trepidation. What sentimental hooey is this? What new hellish circle of cheese awaits now? And yet Stephen Chbosky’s “Wonder,” despite its Hallmark Card appearance, is far from the “...

Review: Director Martin McDonagh's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"
That face. Frances McDormand's face is one of the first things you see in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," and it's impossible not to be struck by its pure decency. Perhaps it's a result of all the other roles we've seen this uniquely fearless actress play, on stage and screen, wrapped...

Review: Kenneth Branagh's "Murder on the Orient Express"
Director Kenneth Branagh's "Murder on the Orient Express " is a visual feast, bursting with movie stars, glamour and production value so high, you might just exit the theater experiencing some time-warp whiplash. Certainly no studio would make a straightforward, classical whodunit with a budget the...

Review: Director Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird"
Lady Bird is obsessed with place. Her place in the world, in her Catholic high school, in her school play, in her own family and in her unglamorous hometown of Sacramento ("the Midwest of California") and the even more unglamorous part she lives in. She craves sophistication in a way that she can't...

Review: Director Richard Linklater's "Last Flag Flying"
In this era of rampant sequelizing, has any filmmaker more playfully inverted the standard more-of-the-same monotony than Richard Linklater? His Oscar-nominated "Boyhood" was, if nothing else, a compendium of life's chapters, filmed — and lived — year after year. His "Before" trilogy reteamed Julie...

Review: Director Taika Waititi's "Thor: Ragnarok"
In the stand-alone films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Thor always seemed to get the short end of the stick. The Thor films were never as popular as Iron Man, and didn't gain steam like Captain America. They were perhaps a little too serious and a little too dull — none of which was the fault of...

Cinematographers & Cameras: Lensing "Mudbound," "Beauty and the Beast," "Brad's Status"
One DP got the chance to shoot for a director she greatly admired and their collaboration has yielded a Netflix feature that is very much in this season’s Oscar conversation. Another cinematographer is in pre-pro on his sixth feature for the same director; their fifth was released this year, a...
