Review: Noah Baumbach's "Marriage Story"
Noah Baumbach is a keen observer of life's banalities. His films relish in the strange and wonderful and awkward things people say and do in the course of the day. But his real magic is turning ordinariness into cinema. He can take that feeling of post-graduate paralysis or middle-age stasis,...

Review: Director Alma Har'el's "Honey Boy"
"Honey Boy" will break your heart. It hardly matters if you've never given a second thought to the circumstances of Shia LaBeouf's life, his childhood or his rocky early adult years. But this is the kind of universally moving work that can only emerge from something immensely specific and personal...

Ellen Burstyn Discusses Women's Voices In Film, #MeToo, Pacino Interview
Ellen Burstyn hoped her Oscar-winning performance in the 1974 film in "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" would lead to more Hollywood stories told from a woman's perspective. It didn't happen quickly, but over the past couple of years there's been an increase in female-driven films and women's...

Review: Director Kasi Lemmons' "Harriet"
Legendary American heroine that she is, there are certain things for which Harriet Tubman is overdue. One is her spot on U.S. currency: Google "Tubman" and "$20" and "Trump." Another is a major feature film based on her life: Google "Tubman" and "Hollywood" and "why so long?" Well, that $20 bill...

Review: Edward Norton's "Motherless Brooklyn"
Jonathan Lethem's novel about a private eye with Tourette's syndrome, "Motherless Brooklyn," starts with a brilliant burst of uncontrolled profanity and an explanation of its protagonist's condition. "Words rush out of the cornucopia of my brain to course over the surface of the world, tickling...

Review: Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman"
The runtime is the most boring aspect of Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman " to dwell on. There is no question that three hours and 28 minutes qualifies as a long movie. And in a landscape where some films can make two hours seem bloated and overindulgent, it's at least understandable why one might...

Review: Director Taika Waititi's "Jojo Rabbit"
"Oh good, another Hitler comedy! It's been too long," said no studio development executive, ever. But of course, absurd as the idea may seem, some attempts to wring humor from the horrors of Nazi Germany have stood the test of time: Charlie Chaplin's "The Great Dictator," Ernst Lubitsch's "To Be or...

Review: Director Robert Eggers' "The Lighthouse"
Enter "The Lighthouse " at your own risk. This is a stark, moody, surreal and prolonged descent into seaside madness that will surely not be for everyone. But those who do choose to go on this black-and-white journey with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe will ultimately find it a rewarding one,...
