Movie Review: Shot (2017)

The irony and timely arrival of the conscientious and stirring drama Shot should not be lost on a majority of savvy movie-goers and television addicts. First, the film’s lead, Noah Wyle (also one of the many producers behind this urban narrative’s stark commentary on senseless violence), played a young dedicated doctor used to helping critically…

Movie Review: Fist Fight (2017)

I don’t know, but I suspect the following conversation may have taken place between the writers of Fist Fight — Van Robichaux, Evan Susser and Max Greenfield — as they were scribbling their ideas down. Van: Remember, guys, we need to set the record for the number of F-words in this script. Evan: Yes. Almost…

Movie Review: Being 17 (2016)

Bullying normally leads to lasting enmity between the perpetrator and the victim. Only occasionally does it lead to friendship. Rarely does it lead to love, but such is the case in André Téchiné’s (“In the Name of My Daughter”) masterful coming of age drama, Being 17 (Quand on a 17 ans), his best film since…

Carney, the former member of the Irish rock group…

Movie Review: The Gift (2015)

Jason Bateman seems a pretty likable guy, despite his penchant for sharp, sarcastic characters. Gone are the days of the sweet, nurturing, unassuming hero; we as a society are deeply entrenched in the era of the sarcastic everyman — the guy who doesn’t simply turn the other cheek. This is the guy who reminds you…

Movie Review: White Rabbit (2013)

The unimaginable horror of school shootings has been the subject of several searing cinematic works to date, so anytime a filmmaker steps into the terrifying fray, it seems imperative that they’re aware of what others have done before them. Tim McCann’s White Rabbit appears to begin rather naively in that respect. As the young director…
