Marriage Story (2019) – Movie Review

Rare are the films which sweep you away with intelligent drama, spellbinding performances, and involving photography. Marriage Story is one of these rare films; however, it’s in reflecting on the film where it takes the opportunity to flatten you.

Aftermath

The last two Arnold Schwarzenegger films I’ve seen have impressed me; I rather like his latter-day venture into dramatic territory. Of course, that’s not to say that I don’t like seeing him with a gun in his hand and a cigar in his mouth. However, his zombie drama Maggie and his latest film Aftermath have […]
