Little Children's stone-cold suburbia reaches for Kubrick, but is also half Spielberg.
I don't know if Mr. Palermo ever reads these comments, but he is the only reviewer that does close readings on movies. If he ever starts quoting the movie to prove his points, his reviews would be essay-worthy. Whenever I watch a film I come here to see if he has reviewed it: to see if I can get a deeper understanding. This review is, once again, great. Wonderful critic, he doesn't just go through the motions like so many "top critics."
