Posted Apr 7, 2021
4/5 Palm Springs (2020) Eddie Harrison ...a unromantic, caustic rom-com which rolls over to reveal grown-up, idealistic sentiment, but only after pigging out in cheerfully anarchic style... EDIT
Posted Apr 6, 2021
4/5 10 (1979) Eddie Harrison 'It's probably the writer/director's best film outside of the Pink Panther movies, and the portrait of the artist as a dirty aging man is one that still resonates today.' EDIT

Posted Mar 31, 2021
4/5 Minari (2020) Eddie Harrison ...a sunny recollection of an 80's childhood, and specifically a love story between a boy and his aging grandmother, Minari is a feel-good movie with heart... EDIT

Posted Mar 29, 2021
3/5 Invaders From Mars (1986) Eddie Harrison ...the first half of Invaders From Mars is easily the best, with a strange off-kilter feel that comes from slavishly updating a 50's storyline... EDIT

Posted Mar 27, 2021

Posted Mar 24, 2021

Posted Mar 24, 2021
5/5 The Goldfinch (2019) Eddie Harrison ...a meticulous, beautifully mounted adaptation that deserves an audience EDIT
Posted Mar 24, 2021
4/5 Hussy (1980) Eddie Harrison If you can ignore the hideous 70's décor, music and attitudes, it's a powerful little B movie that's worth braving the ignominy of having Hussy on your search history... EDIT
Posted Mar 24, 2021

Posted Mar 24, 2021
4/5 Russian Roulette (1975) Eddie Harrison ...Any film that ends with George Segal climbing onto the roof of a hotel and shooting down a helicopter is a winner in my book... EDIT
Posted Mar 24, 2021
3/5 Tough Guys Don't Dance (1987) Eddie Harrison ...for bad movie fans, it's a masterpiece of over-ripe dialogue, ridiculously melodramatic situations, and rabid, macho posturing that curdles the moment it hits the screen... EDIT
Posted Mar 24, 2021
3/5 The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984) Eddie Harrison ...neither the stars nor the songs are a big draw this time around, but The Muppets Take Manhattan has an airy, lightweight quality that gets it over the finish line... EDIT

Posted Mar 23, 2021
1/5 Hamilton (2020) Eddie Harrison ...this neither-fish-nor-fowl version, capturing theatrics not adapted for film, isn't what we need right now... EDIT
