Last Flag Flying

Elijah Davidson
Last Flag Flying
Spending time with old friends has a way of reviving the people we once were, for good or ill.

Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express
As the mystery unravels, Poirot begins to find that his own instincts about crime and justice are inadequate in the face of the fractured world that evil and injustice create.

Lady Bird
"Lady Bird" is a delight. I hope “Written and Directed by Greta Gerwig” becomes a title card I see frequently.

What really matters is whether or not he is a good man, what makes him good, and, cosmically (Catholically?), whether or not it is possible to be “good” as a human being in this world. “Original sin,” and whatnot.

Jane
That Jane Goodall accomplished what she accomplished is remarkable. That she did it with the world laughing at her is beyond belief.

78/52: Hitchcock’s Shower Scene
To see 78/52 at Sundance was to feel connected to a community of people both in the room and on the screen who love movies.

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women
Writer/director Angela Robinson and crew offer a romantic, biopic that embraces emotion. Unfortunately, the convoluted plot detracts from the film’s provocative material.
