88% Studio 54 (2018) Schrager tells the behind the scenes story for the first time, how Studio 54 came to a sudden stop. And it's a doozy. Tyrnauer's revelations from people who were part of the scene are nothing short of astonishing.‐ What She Said

98% Free Solo (2018) The cinematography brings the danger to vivid life, as the sun blazes down on Honnold inching his way towards the goal. Seriously not for the faint of heart.‐ What She Said

72% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Tough to describe things - far better to see this incredibly vexing and rewarding chunk of Gothic Americana because there is plenty to chew on.‐ What She Said

90% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) It's a sweet seduction and another example of Lowery's' radical approach to filmmaking. No wonder Redford wanted to work with him. ‐ What She Said

85% The Sisters Brothers (2018) As we all know, anything goes in the Wild West and so too here, as the boys toss around bon mots and sophisticated ideas as they shoot just about any living thing around them.‐ What She Said

100% In Fabric (2018) It's creepy and deliciously voyeuristic, shocking, surprising, highbrow, low brow and extremely entertaining. I can't get the thing out of my mind. Don't know when I had such perverse, wickedly witty fun at a film.‐ What She Said

90% A Star Is Born (2018) I enjoyed it, yes, but the beats, the aching melodrama, cornball lines, passages and action are past their prime. They missed a great opportunity to show some originality. ‐ What She Said

87% Love, Gilda (2018) The keenly awaited doc Love, Gilda is a bittersweet portrait of the gifted comedienne whose death at 42 personifies the phrase "cut down in her prime." Lis Dapolito's film captures her wondrous talents and innermost thoughts.‐ What She Said

11% Life Itself (2018) A multi-generational, international Ancestry: the Movie type of thing. It's plotted into chapters that are short, rapid and yet intimate as a family grows and morphs and shrinks and morphs over decades. ‐ What She Said

82% My Generation (2017) Archival footage brings the time to life; Mick Jagger is mobbed coming out of court, Twiggy poses and partys, rebellion, protests, ands pop mosaic like nothing heard before. Present day interviews shed light on what the kids accomplished. ‐ What She Said

89% King Lear (2018) What a story! Well done, Will. Fantastic imagery and art direction, but a little heavy and a tad wearing, the film's chock-a-block with interesting British actors.‐ What She Said

83% Cardinals (2017) Cardinal is the film equivalent of the Southern Ontario Gothic literary genre with its moral decay and realism and the introduction of evil in context of the setting.‐ What She Said

93% Searching (2018) A cautionary note illustrating that we habitually fail to communicate with one another, and that's the underlying tragedy of the story.‐ What She Said
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2018
83% Juliet, Naked (2018) An old-fashioned romantic comedy with the adorable Kid, judgy friend, bar dancing, will-he-won't-she tropes and it does feel good. It's a breath of fresh air in the extremely dark, twitchy unhappy universe of movies these days.‐ What She Said

100% Leave No Trace (2018) Leave No Trace is a powerful and devastating call for help for ill veterans, a love letter to nature and familial love. Mackenzie is effortlessly lifelike in a stunning, delicate performance and Foster is as usual, stellar and dominant.‐ What She Said

97% 1945 (2017) Nationalism, protectionism, bigotry and stunning cruelty are the order of the day. The film is precise and stark in black and white. Even the weather and the animals and birds are foretelling doom.‐ What She Said

94% RBG (2018) RBG is embraced by young people who have taken her as their own, and given her memes as Notorious RBG. Her liberalism, savvy and results resonate with young idealists in the Trump era, so she continues to influence policy for tomorrow's voters‐ What She Said

60% Another Kind of Wedding (2018) Jessica Pare guides us through three days of fun and fracture as relationships build and fall apart and rise up in new ways. It's silly but fun and a treat seeing Turner onscreen again.‐ What She Said

Read More | Posted Oct 1, 2018
2.5/5 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) These actors have such great potential for good work and some nice chemistry. Both are proven comediennes, but they're just not feeling it here and neither are we.‐ What She Said
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
4/5 59% Maggie (2015) Maggie is an event, a quiet, artistic and deeply felt performance that captures us when we are in a place we don't understand. Arnold pulls it off with heart and soul.‐ What She Said
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
2.5/5 No Score Yet True Story (2015) There is little connection with the characters, a cool remove and a lack of empathy. Our feelings are limited to disgust and awe, and there is no investment in the outcome as crazy as the tale is.‐ What She Said
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
3/5 56% The Age of Adaline (2015) It has the powerful tang of nostalgia, memory for things we knew or didn't know. It reminds us that time is precious and it's never too late to make a good life.‐ What She Said
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
3.5/5 50% Ride (2015) The film has a sun drenched, appealing California-ness and Hunt has that perpetually sunny bright look that helps soften her character's hard edges; the sun and light seem to erase the Manhattan publishing executive persona and she relaxes.‐ What She Said
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
4.5/5 90% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) A finely crafted psychological study and thriller that operates on several levels, the here and now, the past, and the future and the way our personas shift over time around an unchanging core, like The Snake.‐ What She Said
