The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) Michael J. Casey "I can't go on like this," Estragon says. "That's what you think," Vladimir replies. EDIT

Halston (2019) Michael J. Casey Disappointingly bland and routine. EDIT

Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) Michael J. Casey Simply one of the year's best. EDIT

Phoenix, Oregon (2019) Michael J. Casey It's not one-dimensional, but Phoenix, Oregon is still flat and a little like Bobby's blank face. EDIT

Walking on Water (2018) Michael J. Casey "There's not moment you are not an artist," Christo says. It also appears there is no moment when Christo isn't an overbearing ass. EDIT

Motherless Brooklyn (2019) Michael J. Casey Jane Jacobs, Jonathan Lethem, and Edward Norton walk into a theater to see Chinatown. Motherless Brooklyn walked out. EDIT

Ophelia (2018) Michael J. Casey The inventions and imaginations are a product primarily of the story and not of the visuals. EDIT

Yesterday (2019) Michael J. Casey Yesterday is a trifle of a movie: a light, sugary sweet confection that is delicious and satisfying. EDIT
Posted Sep 7, 2019
The Quiet One (2019) Michael J. Casey The Quiet One isn't a bad documentary on Bill Wyman, the bassists for The Rolling Stones from 1962 to 1993, or a bad documentary in general. It just suffers from arriving too late to the party to add much to a well-worn story. EDIT

Sword of Trust (2019) Michael J. Casey Sword of Trust is funny. Laugh out loud so. EDIT
Posted Sep 5, 2019
Don't Let Go (2019) Michael J. Casey A time-traveling murder mystery with the swiftness of a noir and a little YA throw in for good measure. Must be a Blumhouse. EDIT

Love, Antosha (2019) Michael J. Casey Yelchin was the kind of performer who made everything on the screen look easy - natural, even. But as "Love, Antosha" shows, that naturalism was the product of hours of work, study and thought. EDIT

The Queen (1968) Michael J. Casey A movie that presents and accepts. It doesn't needlessly explain, psychoanalyze its subject, or provide the distance and condescension of an ethnographic survey. EDIT
Posted Aug 28, 2019
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Michael J. Casey The movie has heart, but the filmmakers don't rely on it too long. Sentimentality can only get you so far; then it's time to bring in the pyrotechnics. EDIT
Posted Aug 27, 2019
Piranhas (2019) Michael J. Casey Eternal violence. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2019
Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) Michael J. Casey The portrait of a happy family who are momentarily unhappy. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2019
The Nightingale (2018) Michael J. Casey "It's a miserable world from top to bottom." EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2019
After the Wedding (2019) Michael J. Casey Good drama, bland visuals; oh the delight of an English-language remake. EDIT
