Film Review: The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)
Terrific film about a dysfunctional artistic family that is at once funny, sad and totally credible. Dustin Hoffman, Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller give award-caliber performances.
Film Review: Take My Nose... Please!
Though not groundbreaking, Joan Kron’s documentary on plastic surgery is enjoyable.
Film Review: Our Souls at Night
A flawed yet ultimately lovely film centering on a mature romance and starring two icons.
Film Review: Elizabeth Blue
This sincere drama about a young woman afflicted with schizophrenia is tedious to watch.
Film Review: The Wilde Wedding
Uninteresting romantic comedy starring Glens Close, Patrick Stewart and John Malkovich along with a huge cast of supporting characters who are hard to keep track of. Still, Stewart and Malkovich are entertaining.
Film Review: Easy Living
An exceptional character study of an outlier who lives a Jekyll and Hyde existence in a universe almost devoid of causality.
Film Review: September Morning
Despite its flaws, this drama marks an auspicious debut for writer-director Ryan Frost, who dramatizes the lives of five college freshman in the hours following the September 11 terrorist attacks.
Film Review: Year by the Sea
So-called inspirational film about a mature woman who abandons her husband to run off and “find herself” on a Cape Cod beach. Absurd and dishonest in equal measure.
Film Review: Spettacolo
An evocative but not fully fleshed-out documentary about a theatrical tradition that’s lasted for half a century and may be coming to an end in a Tuscany village.
Film Review: I Do... Until I Don't
Neither amusing nor interesting comedy about three couples starring in a documentary centered on marital discord.
