State Like Sleep (2019)

As the title suggests, this so-called thriller could be trying to emulate a dreamlike or sleepwalking state, but instead it tells a terminally disjointed, boring story in a way that can induce sleep. read more...

    The Wife (2018)

    I finally caught up with The Wife now that Glenn Close has won a Golden Globe and received an Academy Award nomination (her seventh) for her lead performance. That may be a little too much pressure to review the film objectively, and certainly Close is outstanding. But I think I agree with the IMDB commenter who said, "A very good movie which I didn't like." Close plays Joan Castleman, the wife of novelist Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce). Joe has just been chosen to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, and the family -- including grown son and aspiring writer David (Max Irons) -- are off to Stockholm for the ceremony. Through flashbacks (young Joan played by Annie Starke and young Joe played by Harry Lloyd) we learn of a "shocking" twist, that the film decides to reveal well past the halfway point. To start, for a movie all about the art of writing, The Wife is, at times, annoyingly pedestrian. Whenever the pesky would-be biographer Nathaniel Bone (Christian Slater) shows up, Joan explains that she doesn't want to be seen as a victim, or the long-suffering wife, yet that's pretty much what she is. When Joe asks "why did you marry me," her answer is "I don't know." And we don't either. Oddly, the flashback scenes seem to work the best, and some of Slater's scenes are interesting, but when it centers back around to present-day Joe and Joan, as they fight and talk about Joe's eating, medication, and extramarital affairs, it turns into hackneyed melodrama. Perhaps if the screenplay had laid everything on the table all at once, then all the characters could have been more fully developed. But as it is, The Wife is a partly-effective exercise that will likely be forgotten after awards season ends. Elizabeth McGovern, of all people, appears in one scene as a bitter published writer that warns the young Joan against pursuing a career in prose. read more...

      Mary Queen of Scots (2018)

      Just about everything that's usually wrong with costume movies is on display in this dull, chunky ornamental iceberg. It begins with some printed text that's supposed to provide a backdrop, but it goes by pretty quickly, and -- as someone who is not already an expert on Mary, Queen of Scots -- I spent half the movie trying to catch up, and simultaneously trying to keep from falling asleep. Mary Queen of Scots ostensibly tells about the conflict and connection between Mary (Saoirse Ronan) and Elizabeth (Margot Robbie). Mary is the rightful ruler of England, but also a Catholic and therefore unacceptable; she returns to Scotland to rule there, and attempts a kind of truce with Elizabeth, the current ruler of England. The men who counsel both women strong-arm their own opinions into things, and the women are constantly thwarted. There's a race to marry and produce an heir, and a stalemate over who gets to be the next in line for the throne. Screenwriter Beau Willimon and director Josie Rourke present the story in unwieldy chunks, with time marching forward in unknown blocks, although they occasionally identify places that I'd never heard of, with no context. Most of the scenes seem to be attempts to present characters talking to each other in front interesting backgrounds. Sometimes characters talk while riding horses, and you might wonder where they're headed. Nowhere, it seems. read more...

        Acrimony (2018)

        This endless, crushingly serious drama explores a disintegrating marriage between two shallow, selfish partners, and then, for its ridiculous third act, it shifts gears a turns into an awful thriller. Writer/director Tyler Perry returns with Acrimony, an SAT-inspired title that nevertheless aims for the lowest common denominator. read more...

        Regression (2016)

        This is a movie that, because it deals secrets, promises thrills and possibly a measure of terror. But in fact, everything is based on an anti-climax, and the end result is a resounding "so what?" In the beginning of his career, Spanish director Alejandro Amenabar made a superb, mind-bending thriller, Open Your Eyes, that inspired an America remake (Vanilla Sky). He followed it with the terrific ghost story The Others, but since then, his work has become turgid and spotty. read more...
