Posted Jan 18, 2015
3.5/4 81% The Homesman (2014) "Horses, wagons, occasional Indians and villainous white settlers don't stop "The Homesman" from transcending the western tag. In ways both simple and deep, it's a stark, tender, heartrending, universal tale. " ‐ Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
Posted Jan 9, 2015
3/4 74% Inherent Vice (2015) "A dense and dreamy trip to the end of the 1960s. " ‐ Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
