American Made

American Made has got to be one of the most perverse films I’ve seen this year, and I mean it as a positive. That’s “perverse,” not “perverted,” by the way. “Perverse” in the way that what we’re watching is meant to be a man’s illicit life, yet we’re laughing savagely at it. Those of you […]

Despicable Me 3

It’d be one thing if the Despicable Me series had a story which needed to be told in its third film. What we have with Despicable Me 3 (or is it Despicable M3, as the film’s opening credits and promotional materials claim?) is a piece of relatively harmless, potty humor-filled fluff which feels more like […]

Review: “Nocturnal Animals”

Reason to watch: Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Shannon Gripping for a stint, but overall curiously pieced together, “Nocturnal Animals” is a decent thriller adapted from the novel “Tony and Susan” by Austin Wright. Having not read the book, I have no doubt that the translation to celluloid was a difficult undertaking—director Tom Ford’s production has its […]

The Girl on the Train

Set aside every preconceived notion you have about The Girl on the Train being “the next Gone Girl.” Maybe it’s just me, not having read the novel upon which it was based, but I was unexpectedly swept up and captivated by The Girl on the Train’s story and execution. A stellar performance by Emily Blunt as […]
