Spiritwalker (2022) – Movie Review

Imagine being whipped right into the bowl of a Kitchen Aid stand mixer while it’s running at full speed along with other ingredients; no purpose or recipe is known, but somehow, you’re going to find out soon enough what you’re making. That is how Spiritwalker works its thrilling magic – by not giving you any time to know […]

Aline (2022) – Movie Review

Aline, director/writer/star Valérie Lemercier’s fictional biography of singer Céline Dion, reminds me of the fictional restaurant McDowell’s and its namesake owner in John Landis’ 1988 film Coming to America.

The Bubble (2022) – Movie Review

Leave it to comedy guru Judd Apatow to make a COVID-19 movie that feels as long as the pandemic itself. The Bubble wants to be subversive and timely with its commentary on our behavior during this time, but it comes off more like the guy who stayed past his welcome at the party and is […]

Mothering Sunday (2022) – Movie Review

Memories are all we leave behind. The entirety of our psyches is made of memory and experience, and like all memories, there are good and bad… and then there are the formative. The ones we carry with us for the rest of our lives, the ones that leave their mark on us and dictate who […]
