Movie Review: Once Upon a River (2019)

“You can kill me if you want. I kind of wish you would.” Once Upon a River is a 92-minute, independent film that marks Haroula Rose’s debut as a feature film director, and an impressive first feature it is. Based on the novel published in 2011 by Bonnie Joe Campbell, a writer who has been…

Movie Review: Blackbird (2019)

When you sit down for a movie, it can go one of two ways: either it fulfills its purpose of entertaining the viewer or leaves them unsatisfied. And in the case of Roger Michell’s Blackbird, I felt myself falling into the second category. Because, though I am one for reinterpretations of classic tales, I’m not…

Movie Review: Hope Gap (2019)

Hope Gap is one of those typical independent movies, where mood, atmosphere and setting dominates more than the narrative.

Movie Review: Little Women (2019)

Writer/director Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”) puts a contemporary spin on Louisa May Alcott’s nineteenth century classic novel in Little Women, now in its eight film version. Alcott’s semi-autobiographical story about four sisters growing up in Concord, Massachusetts during and after the Civil War stands out for its warmth and celebration of family, its exquisite period…

Movie Review: Feast of the Seven Fishes (2019)

Feast of the Seven Fishes is a Christmas romance movie, and it is certainly one of the more unique and enjoyable ones I’ve seen in recent years. The Italian tradition of the feast of the seven fishes on Christmas Eve isn’t an event I knew much about, so it was nice to learn of the…
