    Review: ‘The Descendants’ Starring George Clooney Is A Mature & Soulful Look At Forgiveness

    Marked by a strong, soulful performance by George Clooney, simple and economic direction, and a slow and patient gait, “The Descendants” finds filmmaker Alexander Payne working in the familiar, but not derivative, milieu of the adult drama. The film doesn’t reinvent the wheel, and ...

    First Reviews - The Iron Lady

    The Iron Lady was unveiled for critics in London and clearly there was no embargo since the reviews have been coming in. Neither one of the reviews below is a rave except for Streep's performance. I think this will be a case of the actress giving a performance that outweighs the heft of the fi...

    Tomboy

    Tomboy written and directed by Celine Sciamma is literally one of my favorite movies of the year. I enjoyed every second of it. It tells the story of Laure, a girl who moves to a new town and pretends she is a boy. She has short hair, wears gender neutral summer clothing and is at an age where at...

    "Tomboy" Positions Director Celine Sciamma as a Warmer Catherine Breillat

    Céline Sciamma's 2007 directorial debut, "Water Lillies," delicately explored the awakening of female urges among a group of feisty teenage girls. Sciamma's follow-up, the similarly heartfelt "Tomboy," moves back in time to unearth the same fundamental experiences ...

    "Cutting Horse" And The Need for More Black Westerns

    Black cowboys aren’t often portrayed in American film, even though they played an integral role in the development of the Western frontier. This is one of the reasons I decided to see Larry Clark’s Cutting Horse (2002) on Sunday night, screened as part of the UCLA L.A. Rebellion Film Ser...

    music review: Boardwalk Empire - Volume 1 (Elektra)

    Nothing evokes a period more vividly, or instantaneously, than music, and the producers of the HBO Prohibition drama 'Boardwalk Empire' have made canny use of vintage songs, both on-camera and off-, since their series began. Now some of the best selections have been gathered in a deligh...

    Review: 'Tomboy' Offers An Insight Into Gender, Identity & Adolescence

    This writer distinctly remembers an old, probably two minute short making its rounds on Nickelodeon in between programs circa 1990. In it, a young lass yearns to play baseball with the neighborhood boys but is turned down because of her gender. So with a sweatshirt, baseball cap, and jeans, she head...
