Review: Director Sally Potter's "The Party"
Sally Potter's new film "The Party " is 71 minutes long. That fact alone shouldn't necessarily be a selling point — stories need as long as they need — but when superhero movies and comedies regularly extend well past the two-hour mark, it's hard not to appreciate the restraint. And it is a rich...

Review: Director Mark Pellington's "Nostalgia" 
One of the first images in the film "Nostalgia" is of an heirloom necklace dangling on the neck of a diner waitress. One of the last images is of a massive puffy cloud, ever shifting in the wide sky. Between these symbols of permanence and flux is a deeply meditative movie about time, loss and the...

Saoirse Ronan Comes of Age In Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird"
Saoirse Ronan is eyeing the lobster salad at Spago in Beverly Hills and has a difficult decision to make regarding cherry tomatoes. She doesn't like them, but she also doesn't like asking for special accommodations. "It's so Irish," Ronan explains. "In Ireland you feel so guilty for requesting...

Review: Aaron Sorkin's Directorial Debut, "Molly's Game"
Aaron Sorkin has a knack for timing, and not just in the obvious way. The Oscar-winning writer of "The Social Network," ''Moneyball" and other fast-talking, crackling scripts has been celebrated for his mile-a-minute wordplay. But he's also been criticized for not exactly featuring complex, strong...

Review: Director Paul Thomas Anderson's "Phantom Thread"
With echoes of "Rebecca" and lavish Max Ophuls productions, writer and director Paul Thomas Anderson spins the tale of an obsessive fashion designer and his muse into a suspenseful and often funny parlor drama with all the trimmings in "Phantom Thread ." Anderson is revered for his grand stage...

Review: Director Alexander Payne's "Downsizing"
It's hard to say what's better about the first half of Alexander Payne's wonderfully weird — or is it weirdly wonderful? — "Downsizing": the audacity of its premise, or the delicious skill with which Payne executes that premise, detail by comically ingenious detail. The fact that the film shifts...

Review: Director Paul McGuigan's "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool"
Annette Bening gives Gloria Grahame a nobility rarely shown to faded Hollywood actresses in "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool," a tender if generic portrait of aged glamour. Based on the 1986 memoir by Peter Turner, Paul McGuigan's film joins the dubious movie genre about close encounters with...

SHOOT's Picks For The Best Work of 2017
With Father Time about to move from 2017 to 2018, it’s time for reflection on varied fronts, including assessing what work was among the year’s most worthwhile creatively. Determining any year’s “best” is a highly subjective, problematic proposition so SHOOT staffers looked to at least narrow the...

Review: Director Michael Gracey's "The Greatest Showman"
"Don't fight it," goes the opening song of "The Greatest Showman," sung by Hugh Jackman. "It's coming for you, running at ya." Well, that's for damn sure. "The Greatest Showman" is a one hour-and-45 minute onslaught on the senses — all peppy, fizzy ballads and frantic energy, earnest sentiments and...

2017 Year End Survey: Positive & Proactive
2017 has been a trying year. Political divisiveness on the rise, civility seemingly in decline. Sexual harassment coming to the fore in entertainment, media and the body politic. Those narrow of mind and short on tolerance emboldened to spew forth hate speech and scapegoating, coming to a tragic...
