Rating History

First Position
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Another ballet focussed fim about the stress involved in international competition. Elements of this film can be wearing.... we know there will be 'winners" and "losers" and Director Bess Kargman focuses on a varied group of motivated students and pushy parents. This film is well worth you time. Bravo to all!

Fading Gigolo
Fading Gigolo (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

"Fading Gigolo" is a little precious jewel of a film which shows what a giant and talent John Turturro is. He not only wrote and directed this remarkable film, but stars in it as well, while keeping Woody Allen's inclination to "chew up the scenery" under tight control.
Turturro has assembled a varied and talented cast to tell a unique tale with strong sexual and Jewish content. Vanessa Paradis, an actress whose work I am not familiar, delivers a nuanced performance and plays off Liev Schreiber, Allen and Turturro in a beautiful way. Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara also deliver in roles right out of an acting textbook.
In sum, this is a film worthy of your attention for its wit, cinematography, acting and fascinating plot. Bravo to all... most especially to Mr. Turturro!

Dancing In Jaffa
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

"Dancing in Jaffa" is an exceptional, beautiful documentary about how to solve thee Middle East crisis one dance at a time. The remarkable element which places this film "over the top," is the way in which we get "inside the heads" of the Palestinian and Israeli students to see how they figure out how to break down the long existing walls of prejudice and hatred and rebuild a new beginning in which they teach their elders how to speak to each other and dance. Bravo and thanks to all who took part in making this most enjoyable film.

Finding Vivian Maier
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

"Finding Vivian Meier" is a documentary film unlike any I have ever seen.
Meier was an eccentric reclusive woman who worked as a nanny in Chicago in the mid to late twentieth century.
But her real passion was phtography. She crept her way into the lives of her subjects as well as the families for whom she worked. She produced thousands of unique photographs, slides, audio tapes and films whcih she did not display or share with anyone.
Beautifully, carefully and lovingly assembled by John Maloof who purchased a trunk of her photos at an auction, this film is beautifully and reverantly assembled. It is a revelation, and most deserving of your attention.

Le passť (The Past)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

"The Past" is a well-crafted French film which borders on the tedious needs a bit of the punch which Director Asghar Farhadi put in "A Separation." It is interesting to see "The Artist" leading lady Berenice Bejo take a big bite and use her remarkable acting chops. Others in the cast have appeared in Farhadi's other films. I wish the pace were quicker. The loss of 30 - 40 minutes would have improved our enjoyment of this family dysfunction tale immensely.
