In director/writer Adam Christian Clark’s new film DIARY OF A SPY, now available on VOD and digital, Reece Noi stars as Camden. Camden is the reserved tutor of an uninhibited Saudi princess (Paulina Leija). Camden has no social life outside of his duties, so he’s completely disarmed when gorgeous (if slightly older) Anna, played by Tamara Taylor, approaches him at a club. The two genuinely bond, to their mutual surprise. What Camden doesn’t know is that Anna is a spy who has been sent by her handlers to seduce him. Then again, Camden has some secrets of his own.

Rating: R Stars: Brad Pitt, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michael Shannon, Benito A Martinez Ocasio, Sandra Bullock, Logan Lerman Writer: Zak Olkewicz, based on the novel MARIA BEETLE by Kotaro Isaka Director: David Leitch Distributor: Columbia/Sony Release Date: August 5, 2022 BULLET TRAIN moves like its namesake, increasing in velocity until the film seems to be going at two hundred miles an hour. The screenplay by Zak Olkewicz, adapted from Kotaro Isaka’s novel MARIA BEETLE, takes pains to explain things (often more than once), but it’s wise to hang on tight to the […]Read On »

Movie Review: RESURRECTION

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Rebecca Hall, Grace Kaufman, Michael Esper, Tim Roth Writer: Andrew Semans Director: Andrew Semans Distributor: IFC Films Release Date: July 29, 2022 RESURRECTION’s title doesn’t really prepare the viewer for what the film is about. To be fair, it’s hard to immediately think of a title that could. Indeed, without getting into spoilers, it’s hard to explain why RESURRECTION has a storyline with specifics we haven’t seen before. Here’s the set-up. Margaret (Rebecca Hall) is a successful executive at a biotech corporation. She is protective – maybe a bit too much – of her daughter Abbie […]Read On »

Movie Review: NOPE

Rating: R Stars: Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, Keith David, Terry Notary Writer: Jordan Peele Director: Jordan Peele Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: July 22, 2022 NOPE has a title and trailer that suggests it’s going to be about people reacting with unexpected common sense to horror movie tropes. That’s not what NOPE turns out to be. This in itself isn’t a demerit; no movie should be judged by how it does or doesn’t adhere to its advertising, which is often created separate from the filmmakers. However, NOPE is an uneven mixed bag. Director/writer Jordan […]Read On »

Lovecraft’s 1932 short story “The Dreams in the Witch House” really is partly about geometry. Lovecraft’s protagonist, Walter Gilman, is a mathematician trying to prove that certain shapes and planes, in relation to one another, can create gateways to other universes. That angle (pardon the pun) has been adopted in H.P. LOVECRAFT’S WITCH HOUSE, […]Read On »
