MOTHER!

Abrasive, presumptuous, abhorrent, and incorrigible...but so are the times we now live in

Good Morning Little Schoolgirl

This was one of the best movies I saw at this year’s film festival, and will likely stand as one of the best I see this year. Go see it when it hits theatres, and prepare to laugh like crazy…

Colder Than You

With the Toronto Film Festival behind me, and the chillier weather greeting my morning commutes to work, my mind has started looking a bit more down the road. Specifically to the glut of great fall movies that are on the way. Part of me thinks it’s a shame that the studios save all these gems...

Reaction: BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU’RE DEAD

No red carpet in sight…lots of tickets available…programmers getting into the Anti-Piracy-“Yarrrrgh“. It must be day ten. With day ten, come the leftovers. The good-looking, under-delivering films that end off this front-end-loaded festival. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen a handful of good movies on the last day (IN AMERICA, THE COOLER, WHEN THE LEVEES...
