    Bombshell (2019)

    I'm not entirely sure if I enjoyed Bombshell as a movie, or as revenge, as it attempts to skewer the massive brainwashing machine known as Fox News. To its credit, it does attempt to find humanity in the characters that work there, but the end result still feels a little too on-the-surface to make much of an impact, either culturally or creatively. Charlize Theron is astonishingly spot-on as news anchor Megyn Kelly, completely transformed by makeup, voice modulation, and physical being. Nicole Kidman plays commentator Gretchen Carlson, but sadly, her makeup makes her look more like a neanderthal than the actual Carlson. Margot Robbie looks like herself as new hire Kayla Pospisil, a religious conservative who dreams of being an anchor. Kayla meets the big boss, Roger Ailes (John Lithgow, also heavily made-up), who makes her hike up her skirt so he can see her legs (and, possibly, more than that). When Gretchen is fired, she immediately attempts to topple Ailes for sexual harassment; the other women must decide whether or not they want to risk everything to get on board. Kate McKinnon plays a crucial character, a lesbian who must keep her sexual orientation and her liberal politics a secret at work; she says she continuously applies for other jobs, but once a person works at Fox, no one else will hire. I confess I let out a hoot when Richard Kind turned up as Rudy Giuliani, but quieted down again when Malcolm McDowell appeared, playing a scary Rupert Murdoch. read more...

      Darkest Hour (2017)

      Joe Wright's Darkest Hour is just the kind of thing that pops up every awards season, with a big, blustery, makeup-covered performance at its center. But this one, telling the story of Winston Churchill as he becomes Prime Minister in 1940 and must decide what to do about WWII, remains dynamic and energetic, despite its limited, mostly interior settings. Gary Oldman plays Churchill, and suffice to say that if he finally wins an Oscar, it will not be undeserved. Kristin Scott Thomas is terrific as his spunky wife Clementine, who tells him things like "with such power you must be more kind" (an apt thing for our times as well). And Ben Mendelsohn gives the movie its best stuff as King George, a.k.a. "Bertie" (of The King's Speech); his handful of meetings with Churchill are the heart and spine of the movie. They can't stand each other at first, but slowly develop a fascinating relationship. Lily James is technically the main character, a secretary to Churchill, and our eyes and ears for everything, but as with most characters of this type, she's somewhat passive. Wright pours everything into intuitive, brilliant staging and design, as well as sequences of fluid camerawork and kinetic editing, to keep everything alive. And it works. This is, weirdly, the third movie of 2017 about the events at Dunkirk, after Lone Scherfig's Their Finest and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. read more...

        To Sleep with Anger (1990)

        I was lucky enough to see Charles Burnett's To Sleep with Anger during its all-too-brief 1990 theatrical release. I loved it then, and my memory of that time is frosted with Burnett coming to my college to speak (I attended with only a handful of other students), and my first and only meeting with Danny Glover (he was very friendly and gave me an autograph). But I never took any notes on the film and as the years passed and I wanted to write up a review, I found my memory of it a little too faded. Worse, it had become something of a lost film, never released on DVD and quite difficult to find. Now, in what will surely be one of the most essential Blu-rays of the year, the Criterion Collection has finally righted this wrong. read more...

            Sometimes Always Never (2020)

            Though it may seem like the epitome of a "quirky" indie dramedy, Sometimes Always Never establishes itself as something different with its rich, polychrome production design, looking like a more somber Wes Anderson film or a more lightweight David Lynch film. Strange statues resting in green nooks are nestled in blood-red walls, while arcs of light and doorways create odd and wonderful framing. It brings a slightly unreal quality to the movie, and when the characters don't act totally realistically, it feels okay. read more...
