    SIFF REVIEW | A Bromance With Old People: Taylor Guterson's "Old Goats"

    In the first few minutes of Taylor Guterson's "Old Goats," writer-director Taylor Guterson's debut feature has the appearance of a documentary, mainly because the matching of the scenario and the tone are so unfamiliar in narrative cinema. With an upbeat soundtrack to set the mood, Guterson shows an elderly man discussing his sailing plans to a roomful to peers. Another man only slightly younger begins the narrate the story. The vibe is light and playful. Here's the disconnect: Scripted American movies usually require young faces to please the requisite financiers. "Old Goats" has none of those faces, but it still adopts the familiar mold of ...

    movie review—Midnight In Paris

    I had a smile on my face from the moment Woody Allen’s latest film began, with an idyllic series of Parisian street scenes set to the music of jazz great Sidney Bechet…and the film maintained that lovely quality all the way to the finale. Allen may be a fatalist, as he often cla...
