Funny, informative movie reviews
Such a tragedy provokes a tangled thicket of emotions, and Burnham spends 87 minutes hacking through them all, searching for something funny.
Some audiences may find this film to be too mannered and deliberate, but I enjoyed watching Christoph Waltz’s character spin the webs that will eventually ensnare him.
The first two-thirds of Moffie feels like a bucket of cold ice water, and most of the world could use a good dousing. That greatness dissipates into mere goodness, but this is still a film of haunting poetic beauty, and I heartily recommend it.
On one hand, this represents a new angle on the Capone legend. Unfortunately, this is also an eccentric, unpleasant film that gets lost telling a story nobody was asking to hear.
For all its flaws, Harriet remains a film worth seeing. Tubman’s life occupies a crucial place in American history.
In Motherless Brooklyn, writer-director-star Edward Norton paints with brilliant brush strokes, but he doesn’t know when to step back from the canvas.
