"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

'Beauty and the Beast' Review

Disney reworked the classic animated “Beauty and the Beast” (1991) into a live action version and came up with an enchanting edition that — to date — has been one of the company’s highest grossing live-action fairy tales — with a domestic box office take of just north of $500 million.

'La La Land' Review

“La La Land” was the exhilarating widescreen musical that set hearts thumping in the latter part of 2016, just in time to ameliorate (somewhat) a presidential election that tore the country apart. From the original and creative opening dance number staged on a freeway overpass during Los Angeles rush hour traffic to the alternative, dreamlike … More

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Review

The first of the Star Wars stand-alone films. Since almost everyone in the known universe has seen “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (except for the Trumps and the Putins, who were too busy divvying up the world), there’s no need to replicate the entire storyline here, save to say that — unlike “Star Wars … More

'Elle' Review

“Elle” is one of the most deliciously wicked and nasty films of the year, featuring a terrifically convoluted scenario, great performances (including a tour-de-force turn by Isabelle Huppert, who received this year’s Golden Globe for Best Actress), and lots of off-kilter sex. It’s a psychological thriller that casts a jaundiced eye at marriage, family, business, … More
