Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Most documentaries of entertainment people follow a familiar arc—the innate talent, the singular devotion to craft and rise to fame. Then, the fall from grace and public favor, and the final esteemed place in art and culture, voiced by colleagues, artists, and frustrated spouses and lovers. Neville’s film reveals that Fred Rogers’ path was so very different, but equally fascinating.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout – Alternate Take

Most movies are fantasies, not in the genre sense, but in the descriptive. Movies present a condensed, idealized version of people and the world.

Sorry To Bother You

The energy of the film is angry, but it is, after all, Juvenalian Satire in general, and, with respect to the individual characters in the story, Menippean Satire, so the judgement is real. It’s disturbing by design.

Deadpool 2 isn’t for kids, but it sure is fun. I think it has a good heart too. There’s genuine sentiment on display in the midst of all the mayhem. Every moment of the film has been crafted to provide a good time for the audience

Tully

Despite the clamorous portrayal of motherhood, however, Tully doesn’t vilify motherhood or raising a family; nor are self-liberation and relational independence presented as remedies to a disease generated by traditional family structures. It’s not about doing more of “this” and “less” of that.
