Movie Review: Beatriz at Dinner (2017)

One per-centers are taking it on the chin at the movies these days with recent releases like “The Founder” and “Get Out,” and now the latest cinematic smack out of Sundance, Beatriz at Dinner, a sly and telling exposé of class in America as seen through the eyes of a Mexican immigrant woman named Beatriz…

Movie Review: The Accountant (2016)

There’s certainly no accounting as to why Ben Affleck (“Gone Girl”) would choose this, The Accountant, a tepid and convoluted thriller to star in, but all I know is I wish I could deduct the two-plus hours I spent at the cinema to see it; time I will never get back in a refund next…

Movie Review: Best of Enemies (2015)

Gavel-to-gavel coverage of the Republican and Democratic national conventions was still being offered by CBS and NBC in 1968, but ABC, lacking their resources, limited their coverage to a few hours in the evening and highlighted it with a ten-night debate between conservative author and commentator William F.

Movie Review: The Campaign (2012)

A Republican getting positive treatment in a modern Hollywood film? This IS a trip to Fantasy Land, or “Rainbow Land” to quote from The Campaign, the newest comedy starring Will Ferrell, who, along with Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover,” “The Hangover Part II“), attempt to parody the current political season with somewhat successful results. Actually though,…
