Last Flag Flying (2017)

The Skeleton Twins (2014)

I love comedians. Conventional wisdom has always been against this idea, but I think comedians are generally better actors than dramatic ones. Comedy is much harder, and requires something personal. A dramatic actor can hide behind costumes or accents and disappear into a role, but a comedian is always on display, always risking something. But because the result, laughter, is a physical response rather than a mental one, tastemakers automatically assume that it's a lower, and lesser, response. read more...

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn (2014)

Amazingly, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is the first film in twelve years by director Phil Alden Robinson, of Field of Dreams and Sneakers. Perhaps even more amazingly is how this welcome return lands with a crashing thud. read more...

Limelight (1952)

To casual viewers, Charles Chaplin's Limelight may appear overly sentimental and not very funny, but a deeper look proves it to be one of the comedian's most revelatory works. It's Chaplin's most personal and painful film, and the only film to show his onscreen death. It's an incredibly brave achievement. read more...

50/50 (2011)

In the old days, people used to cry at movies about doomed relationships. Now they cry at other things, among them cancer movies. Just about every year, we get at least one or two cancer movies. Just last week there was Tom Tykwer's 3, and before that, One Day, Beginners, In a Better World, Biutiful, My Sister's Keeper, Elegy, and more. Sometimes cancer is a subplot, designed to give the movie some emotional and heft, and other times it's the main subject. But rarely has anyone tried to stuff cancer into a comedy-drama, and one somehow remains prickly and funny through every moment of its running time. read more...
