Movie Review: The Post (2017)

If The Post was little more than a piece of agitprop beating the drums for the value of a free press in a democracy, it would more than justify its reason for being. The fact that it is so much more is a testament to the skills of director Steven Spielberg and the talents of…

Movie Review: The Girl on the Train (2016)

Imagine if “Rear Window” were in motion, the fragmented but persistent yearning to see given (literal) added dynamism.
