Emergency (2022) – Movie Review

Where Emergency makes its impact is in the way it makes the Black struggle real. Although we see it on the news almost every other day, what we don’t get often is the first-person perspective of just how harrowing it is to be a minority and not be able to trust the systems that are […]

Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022) – Movie Review

As a parent, I palpably felt the emotion and tilt of Everything Everywhere All At Once. This wondrous film about a put-upon family matriarch struggling to get by and to keep her house and business going may dress itself in the garb of a sci-fi fantasy adventure, but at its most vital, it is a […]

After Yang (2022) – Movie Review

The solemn and pensive After Yang resounds with sadness and grief; yet it is a celebration of loved ones passed on. We mourn because of the hole they leave in our lives, but they are also the cause of healing and renewal. Based on the short story “Saying Goodbye to Yang” by Alexander Weinstein, director/screenwriter […]

All My Life (2020) – Movie Review

For a film dramatizing an emotionally-loaded real-life story, All My Life doesn’t manage to share these emotions with its audience and make them a part of it. Instead, we’re given a feel-good, greatest hits-style montage instead of a movie. It has the effect of holding one at arm’s length, as if to save them from […]
