Movie Review: In Circles (2016)

In Circles, a based-on-fact drama about crop circles in England, is unfortunately inert and dead on arrival. It’s a muddled ball of confusion that struggles fruitlessly to provide some sort of context or emotional connection among the characters, the audience, and the plot. Otherwise, it’s not really terrible. A reporter, Lara (Cassandra Thomas, “The Duchess…

Movie Review: The Eyes of My Mother (2016)

A woman (Diana Agostini, “The Eyes of Van Gogh”) looks out the window of her remote hillside home. A strange man (Will Brill, “Girls Against Boys”) is talking to her young daughter, who was playing in the garden. She goes out to investigate. He gives her a too-bright smile and asks when her husband will…

Movie Review: The Devil Lives Here (2015)

In a trailer commentary video that can be viewed on IMDb, Robert Eggers, writer and director of The Witch, explains that what he set out to accomplish with his debut film was to transport twenty-first century viewers back to the seventeenth, to a time when “the real world and the fairy tale world were the…

Movie Review: The Visit (2015)

I love M. Night Shyamalan movies and I have no qualms about admitting that I’m a fan. I was hooked from “The Sixth Sense” and “Unbreakable,” and I stand by my contention that “The Village” is a fantastic film that was poorly and incorrectly marketed as a horror film when it’s clearly not. And ….
