Movie Review: Rules Don’t Apply (2016)

One rule that definitely SHOULD apply for Rules Don’t Apply, “Thou shalt not let your main and most interesting character be overshadowed by two supporting actors that have neither the chemistry or the intrigue to carry a short feature, let alone a two-plus hour one.” But, like the moldy 1994 romcom, “I.Q.,” where Walter Matthau’s…

Movie Review: Nine Lives (2016)

Two years ago, David and Jackie Siegel were billionaires. They had planes, Rolls Royces, multiple nannies for their seven kids, hosted parties for…

En route to getting a haircut in his seductive stretch limo, a young playboy billionaire witnesses his life get threatened, his personal worth precipitously drop after a risky bet and all sorts of anarchistic demonstrations in the streets. If you ask me, that’s just New York City. For David Cronenberg there’s a thread connecting it…
