BORG VS MCENROE [2017]

Directed by Janus Metz Written by Ronnie Sandahl Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Sverrir Gudnason, Stellan Skarsgård The first feature for director Janus Metz is a generic film that doesn’t do much to help itself stand out from the pack. The story though rescues it from…

SUBURBICON [2017]

Directed by George Clooney Written by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, George Clooney, Grant Heslov Starring: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, Noah Jupe, Karimah Westbrook While clumsily executed at times, Suburbicon can be a fun film if you can forgive its faults. Laughs can arise during…

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER [2017]

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos Written by Yorgos Lanthimos, Efthymis Filippou Starring: Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone, Barry Keoghan The Killing of a Sacred Deer yearns to make you squirm and feel uncomfortable from the graphic, extended opening scene of open-heart surgery; later becoming relevant to…

GOOD TIME [2017]

  Directed by Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie Writers: Ronald Bronstein, Josh Safdie Stars: Robert Pattinson, Benny Safdie, Jennifer Jason Leigh An independent film done right, this is a tense, dark and gritty thriller that certainly has some unpredictable moments under its sleeve. This is a…

Director: Noah Baumbach Writer: Noah Baumbach Stars: Adam Sandler, Grace Van Patten, Dustin Hoffman, Elizabeth Marvel, Emma Thompson Dustin Hoffman delivers a truly fantastic turn in Noah Baumbach’s latest riot, and despite the constant suffering of all the characters involved, it is darkly funny in more ways than one….

FERRARI 312B [2017]

Directed by: Andrea Marini Starring: Paolo Barilla, Gerhard Berger, Bob Constanduros, Niki Lauda, Damon Hill Undoubtedly a film for Formula 1 fans– not, I repeat, not for casual fans of Ferrari–  this surprisingly emotional and tense film provides not only much insight into one of the greatest…

HAPPY DEATH DAY [2017]

Directed by: Christopher Landon Written by: Scott Lobdell Starring: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine Happy Death Day doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be. A comedy? Horror? Mystery? Romance? It is all balled up into a knotted ball of yarn that…

mother! [2017]

Directed and Written by: Darren Aronofsky Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Gleeson The filmography of Darren Aronofsky surely must be one of the most eclectic, varied and decidedly non-establishment collections of any prominent ‘big name’ American director working today,…

WIND RIVER [2017]

Director: Taylor Sheridan Writer: Taylor Sheridan Stars:  Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille Somewhat experienced with the pen, Taylor Sheridan takes a step up to direct this film in his trilogy of the American frontier. This however is vastly different from Sicario and Hell or…

THE BEGUILED [2017]

Directed by Sofia Coppola Written by: Thomas Cullinan (based on the novel by), Albert Maltz (based on the screenplay by), Sofia Coppola Starring: Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning Sofia Coppola’s latest film carries her typical dreamy style but puts it in direct contrast with…
