TIFF 2021: “The Electrical Life of Louis Wain”

Rating: 4 out of 5. A true artist never connects with the real world. In fact, he/she creates one’s own where all others can join in to admire the brilliance of their craft. Louis Wain (Benedict Cumberbatch) is extremely talented. He is qualified to do all sorts of jobs, if he wishes to. His […]

Film Review: “The Last Letter from Your Lover” (2021)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5. Who does not like watching love stories? Whether it is with a happy ending or not, it has something to warm our hearts. Remember Arthur Hiller’s “Love Story” (1970) with Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal? Or “The Way We Were” (1973) with Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford or the […]

Film Review: “Black Widow” (2021)

Rating: 4 out of 5. Black Widow is one of the most fascinating characters I personally started respecting after her ultimate sacrifice in The Avengers End Game. There’s something about her you can’t disregard. It’s not just her contagious charm or ability to convince the rest of the world why she deserves to be […]

The Fortune

Turning up on Amazon Prime’s streaming service like a lost sock, Mike Nichols’ forgotten comedy is a star-powered throwback to the screwball comedy era, top-lined by Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty. Comedy and period revivals were a big deal in the 70’s, from What’s Up Doc? To The Sting, but The Fortune, despite an illustrious […]

Is The King of Comedy Scorsese’s Best Film? No – It’s Simply The Best Film

A “Stowaway” on a space ship? Who isn’t an Alien? Or a Predator?

The crew of three dock with their starship to Mars, pop the hatch on their shiny, white, aluminum alloy and glass space ship and busy themselves with firing it up to make another trip to the Red Planet, and overcoming motion sickness. It’s a complex “cycler” craft, generating artificial gravity by tethering and rotating the […]

How Mindhunter Makes Conversation More Frightening Than Blood

Rating: 8.5 out of 10. I know I’ve been on a bit of a ’70s run recently, with the likes of The Long Goodbye, The French Connection, The Parallax View and Marathon Man, so I thought this would be a nice change of gear with recent Netflix series Mindhunter. But, ah ha! I’ve fooled […]
