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.
Film Review: Unleashed
Wonderfully entertaining comedy about two house pets who find themselves trapped in the bodies of grown men and their relationship with their owner who thinks they are her new suitors.
Film Review: The Queen of Spain
Set in Franco’s Spain, this self-referential film-within-a-film is painfully dated and unfunny, and its mishmash of genres is even more off-putting.
Film Review: The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
A thoroughly unentertaining animated feature about animals discovering their environmentally friendly roots while battling a corrupt mayor’s plan to destroy their natural habitat.
Film Review: Chronically Metropolitan
Entertaining and original low-key family drama with comic elements about, among other issues, a writer’s responsibility to friends and relatives when he uses them as source material for his fiction.
