    Victoria and Abdul (2017)

    Director Stephen Frears returns to queens and actress Judi Dench returns to one particular queen with Victoria and Abdul; Dench already played this Elizabeth in Mrs. Brown, and here she is again as the grumpy, frumpy old matriarch, eating too much rich food and dealing with pesky family members like insects. Into her life comes Abdul (Ali Fazal), an envoy from India sent to give her a gift. She takes a liking to him, and decides to keep him around as her munshi, or teacher. And they become unlikely friends. Their ups and downs come when the queen realizes that Abdul is married, or has lied to her about some part of Indian history. Worse is when Prince Bertie (Eddie Izzard) shows up, filled with hatred toward this unwanted guest. While the film is definitely amusing and touching, it, for whatever reason, never quite grows into hilarious or moving. Whereas other Frears films like The Queen have a particular sparkle, this one feels a bit duller. Perhaps it's too much of a surface reading of this story, or perhaps it recoils a bit from the racial issues. However, the performances and the chemistry between the actors certainly help things along. Simon Callow appears in one scene as opera singer Puccini. This was the final film of Tim Pigott-Smith. read more...

      Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017)

      Although Goodbye Christopher Robin is another awards-season biopic, this one manages to avoid most of the genre trappings by telling a more focused story, a story that's about something, rather than simply someone's "life story." (It's even somewhat kid-friendly.) The movie focuses on writer A.A. (Alan) Milne (Domhnall Gleeson), who comes home from The Great War full of trauma and anxiety. He wishes to write about the horrors of war, and decides to move to the quiet of the country with his wife Daphne (Margot Robbie) and their young son Christopher. He's unable to write for a while, and he broods while Daphne shops and sharply reproaches their nanny, Olive (Kelly Macdonald). Christopher, however (played by many different children at different ages), loves Olive dearly. read more...

      The Virgin Suicides (2000)

      Let's face it. Sofia Coppola has a lot of ground to make up as far as a directorial debut is concerned. She's not starting from ground zero like most filmmakers. Her performance in her father Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather Part III (1990) spawned an army of nay-sayers and bitter criticism. I, on the other hand, loved that film and thought her performance reflected the naivete of her character. So perhaps I'm starting from a better place than most people. But I think The Virgin Suicides, written and directed by Sofia Coppola, is a wonderful film. read more...

        Junior Bonner (1972)

        According to popular wisdom, Sam Peckinpah and Steve McQueen didn't make much of a team; the two films they made together in 1972 -- Junior Bonner and The Getaway -- are considered two of the weakest in Peckinpah's canon. Critic David Thomson wrote that Peckinpah was better with ensemble casts, and that a beloved star like McQueen demanded too much special attention. Yet Junior Bonner succeeds as one of Peckinpah's loveliest films, simmering with family animosity but also brimming with terrific moments of graceless quiet. read more...

        The Family Fang (2016)

        Laced with subtle performances and rich characters, Jason Bateman's The Family Fang is a big improvement over his last movie, the overly cynical-but-cute Bad Words. Adapted from a novel (and feeling very much like an adaptation of a novel), it focuses on the titular family. In the 1970s and 1980s, two parents, a son and daughter, acted in real-life "performance art" pieces designed to push the boundaries of what's acceptable in public, i.e. a child committing a bank robbery, or orphaned children singing bad punk-rock songs in the park. read more...
