Movie Review: Arrival (2016)

From its opening shot of a house both sleek and warm to its transcendent finale, Arrival arrests attention with a grasp that is firm yet ephemeral. It is a sublime and profound experience, touching its audience on an emotional, intellectual and spiritual level, a film that declares both its originality and its ancestry. And what…

Movie Review: Sully (2016)

“It’s been a while since New York had news this good — especially with an airplane in it.” What if your instincts indicated you were correct, but training, technology and computer evidence proved you were wrong? How would you deal with it? Those are the questions in the newest Clint Eastwood-directed film, Sully, the biopic…

Movie Review: Regression (2015)

The year is 1990. The place is a rural Minnesota town and a man there reports to the police station because his daughter has accused him of raping her.

At its heart is high school senior Rob (John Karna) and his world…

Movie Review: Under the Skin (2013)

About a year and a half ago (before I was writing for any sites), I went to the movie theater to go check out Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master,” a film that not only deeply sat with me, but had me thinking for days on end about its rich themes and utterly impressive display of…
