Old M Night Shymalan

I read some reviews of this movie that said that it moves too quickly for you to feel anything for the characters. I think that speed of storytelling dumps you right there on the beach with the characters of the Read more…


Prisoners Of The Ghostland

When you let Nicholas Cage loose and he in scene-chewing mode you need something solid for him to connect with. If Cage swings and hits against nothing substantial then the whole act feels just as paper-thin. This seems like something Read more…

There were a couple of obvious moments which reminded me of Tarkovsky, but the Russian director came to mind as a touchstone for the whole sensibility of the movie. I’ll be interested to see if I read this anywhere in Read more…


Anthony Bourdain

It is not any secret that I love Anthony Bourdain and his work. I have watched all of A Cook’s Tour, The Layover, Raw Craft and Parts Unknown, and I am most of the way through No Reservations. I am Read more…
