Wolf Entertainment Guide
Art Bastard (2016)
Song Of Lahore (2015)
"A documentary as remarkable as it is sad as it explores the self-destruction of politician Anthony Weiner as a result of his repeatedly sending pictures of his sexual equipment to woman, thereby becoming a laughing stock and facing a ruined carer."
Love & Friendship (2016)
"Whit Stillman's adaptation of Jane Austen's novella "Lady Susan" wittily details hunts for husbands, conniving and amusing intrigues with colorful cast highlighted by Kate Beckinsale as Lady Susan. "
The Lobster (2016)
"Fantasy film in which people who remain single have deadline to marry or be turned into animals. Droll idea wears thin after a while, but there is often entertaining humor, romance and rebellion along the way."
Sunset Song (2016)
Money Monster (2016)
"Jodie Foster-directed suspense drama clicks with charismatic George Clooney as flamboyant TV money show expert whose life is threatened on the air when an armed loser whose stocks tanked demands the truth of what went wrong."
Rabin In His Own Words (2016)
Mothers and Daughters (2016)
Dark Horse (2016)
A Bigger Splash (2016)
"Renowned rock stars (Tilda Swinton) recovering from throat surgery and her lover vacation on exotic Italian island when her former lover (Ralph Fiennes) arrives. Passions heat up in march to tragedy, but apart from enjoying the cast, will anybody care?"
"Good-hearted and enjoyable if cliched tale of Jewish kosher baker in London whose Muslim assistant bakes with drugs in dough as business booms , trouble looms and Jewish-Muslim understanding blooms. Nicely acted."
Mother's Day (2016)
"So terrible it could be reason to cancel the national holiday. A mess with multiple subplots mixing feeble efforts at comedy with gushy sentimentality and embarrassment to noted cast, including Jennnifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Julia Roberts.`"
Papa: Hemingway in Cuba (2016)
"First Hollywood movie filmed in Castor's Cuba. Based on true story, journalist befriended by Ernest Hemingway is invited to the author's home, where he witnesses writer's suicidal downs and turbulent marriage, while Castro revolution rages."
"Fascinating documentary about the Streit's matzo company and those who founded and operated it with an attempt to keep up the family tradition and the final need to shift to the suburbs after decades on New York's Lower East Side."
Green Room (2016)
The Boss (2016)
"Melissa McCarthy does her comic shtick as an ego-driven woman who gets rich with a business venture, loses it all and must start over and become a better person. Inane screenplay with laughs here and there."
Look at Us Now, Mother! (2016)
Louder Than Bombs (2016)
"Mature, complex story of family trying to deal with death of the wife-mother (played by Isabelle Huppert), a war photographer who survived fighting only to die in a suburban car crash. Excellent performances all around."
Applause (Applaus) (2010)
"Catherine Deneuve in one of her best performances as a sympathetic judge determined to help an obstreperous, perpetual teen delinquent, brilliantly played by Rod Paradot, change his life. Upsetting but constantly compelling"
Miles Ahead (2016)
"Don Cheadle plays famous musician Miles Davis, as well as co-authors the screenplay and directs the film.. It's mainly his show as the biopic energetically plunges into Davis' ups and downs and self-destructiveness."
Valley Of Love (2016)
I Saw the Light (2016)
"July Delpy directs and stars in an entertaining story spiked with comedy and malice. As divorced Violette she needs a man, but her fiercely jealous son Lolo plots to undermine every relationship, including the latest with a nice-guy computer expert."
"Christopher Plummer as a man losing his memory but armed and sent on a mission to find a Nazi war criminal. Good performances and the subject hold interest but the plot and twist ending are hard to believe."
Eye In The Sky (2016)
"Inspired by a real lAmerican story, "Marguerite" shifts the tale to France. Wealthy woman longs to sing opera and becomes a laughing stock for off-key concerts. Who will tell her the truth? Eleganly told with brilliant performance by Catherine Frot."
Colliding Dreams (2016)
"Extensive exploration of the history and meaning of Zionism leading to state of Israel and the conflicting desires of Israelis and Palestinians, humanized with interviews and films clips, historical and contemporary."
"A well-acted, picturesque Chinese soap opera that nails changes in China over the years, especially toward the kind of materialism affecting its characters and by implication reflecting China's new financial status in the world."
A War (Krigen) (2016)
"Moral complications that can arise from any war, but one especially wasteful and impossible to win, are devastatingly captured in the morass of Afghanistan as Danish soldier faces charges back home of killing civilians."
Zoolander 2 (2016)
Hail, Caesar! (2016)
"Writer--director brothers Joel and Ethan Coen affectionately spoof old Hollywood and its movies in a clever well-cast and well-acted satire that should especially delight film buffs but also entertain others not clued into the witty references."
The Club (El Club) (2016)
"Priests guilty of sexual abuse and exiled to a beachfront village in Chile are self-righteous instead of repentant and face scrutiny by an Vatican emissary. An incisive plunge into immorality under the guise of religion."
Rams (Hrútar) (2016)
Rabin, the Last Day (2016)
The Finest Hours (2016)
"High marks for exciting depiction in 3D Imax of ocean rescue during turbulent storm off Chatham< Massachusetts, based on a real event, but otherwise undercut by cliched romance involving the woman who waits ashore for her man."
In The Shadow of Women (2016)
"Jennifer Lawrence is the main reason for watching this based-on-fact story of a divorced mom who invents a miracle mop and finds success despite skepticism of her mixed up family. Has its moments , but seems too far-fetched in the telling. "
The Revenant (2015)
The Big Short (2015)
The Lady In The Van (2015)
The Danish Girl (2015)
"Eddie Redmayne gives an emotionally affecting performance in a fact-based portrayal of one of the first to undergo transgender surgery, with Alicia Vikander superb as his supportive but conflicted wife."
Censored Voices (2015)
James White (2015)
