If Soderbergh can find inspiration again, perhaps there's hope for all of us.

IT COMES AT NIGHT

How fragile is man's humanity to man when the plague is knocking at the door

WONDER WOMAN

How does one tell the story of a god and make it interesting to us puny humans? How does one take an immortal spirit and an indestructible form and use it to spin a tale that will still captivate?

Reaction: DEATH DEFYING ACTS

So here we are on day eight, and it finally happened. I went to a screening of a movie I didn’t like. Someone in the know warned me about this coming in, but I wanted to like it. Truthfully, I can’t say that I didn’t like it, more like I didn’t care about it once...

Reaction: DR.PLONK

Sometimes, the best ideas come from the oddest places. When i asked director Rolf de Heer how he was inspired to make his silent comedy, DR. PLONK (* * *), he answered that he was simply rooting through a closet in his production house, and came upon some very expired film stock…stuff that should have...

Lucky

Finally, after a long string of successful mornings – my luck finally ran out. I went to The Manulife Centre box office this morning, looking to grab a same-day ticket for my younger brother to see LARS AND THE REAL GIRL. “Sorry” the friendly volunteer told me “sold out”. I looked at my watch that...

Reaction: I’M NOT THERE

After 12 screenings, and seven days, I still haven’t gone to a film I haven’t liked. But, I can say that so far, I’M NOT THERE (* * 1/2) was the film I’ve liked the least. The movie is a Bob Dylan biopic with a twist. In my reaction post to CONTROL, I mentioned that...

Reaction: REDACTED

I don’t rattle easy when I watch a movie – REDACTED (* * * *) got me pretty good. It’s a fictional account of an alleged incident that happened in Iraq during the current gulf war. An incident which has since been redacted. The story goes that an American Marine unit stormed into a civilian...

Let it Rain

Thoughts on a Wednesday MorningIt is Wednesday morning…isn’t it? My sense of time is slowly slipping away, but I’ll be alright. That rainstorm last night got to me in a few ways. My clothes from last night still haven’t exactly dried out, and I myself and trying to fight off a bit of a cold....

Reaction: BODY OF WAR

Tonight I attended a screening that will join the ranks of my all-time greatest film festival memories. At 9pm tonight, I took my seat in the Isabel Bader for the premiere of BODY OF WAR (* * * *) a great new anti-war doc about Tomas Young, a young soldier back from combat in Iraq....

Reaction: ACROSS THE UNIVERSE

Fair warning: These two reaction posts will deal very little with the actual plot of the films, since I have a lot to get to at this wicked-late hour… Back in May, I first saw the amazing trailer for Julie Taymor’s ACROSS THE UNIVERSE (* * *). From that moment, I knew I had to...

Observations on a Tuesday MorningHalfway home…doesn’t the time fly when you’re having fun? The other morning I mentioned that even though LUST, CAUTION wasn’t as amazing as I had hoped it might be, I still wanted to give it another shake. Well, now I’m pretty sure I have to with news that it has won...
