Movie Review: CALL JANE

CALL JANE | ©2022 Roadside Attractions

Rating: R Stars: Elizabeth Banks, Sigourney Weaver, Chris Messina, Kate Mara, Wunmi Mosaku, Cory Michael Smith, Grace Edwards, John Magaro Writers: Hayley Schore & Roshan Sethi Director: Phyllis Nagy Distributor: Roadside Attractions Release Date: October 28, 2022 In CALL JANE, Jane turns out not to be a person. Instead, the Jane Collective is the group name of women who helped other women get abortion services from the mid-‘60s through 1972. We start out in Chicago in 1968, where protesters are getting loud outside the Democratic National Convention. Joy Griffin (Elizabeth Banks) is curious, but has more immediate concerns as wife, […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN

THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN | ©2022 Searchlight Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon, Barry Keoghan, Pat Shortt, Gary Lydon Writer: Martin McDonagh Director: Martin McDonagh Distributor: Searchlight Pictures Release Date: October 21, 2022 THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN is a dark but oddly warm comic tragedy. Set in 1923 on a small island of the coast of Ireland, it features the kinds of eccentric, sharply-drawn characters we’ve come to expect from writer/director Martin McDonagh. It should be noted, for those who care, that there are no actual banshees in THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN. There are ill portents, to be sure, some death, and some blasts […]Read On »

Movie Review: OLD MAN

OLD MAN | ©2022 RLJEFilms

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Stephen Lang, Marc Senter, Liana Wright-Mark, Patch Darragh Writer: Joel Veach Director: Lucky McKee Distributor: RLJE Films Release Date: October 14, 2022 As we see from the evocative painting by Vanessa McKee under the opening credits, OLD MAN is set in an isolated cabin in the woods. Stephen Lang plays the old man of the title. He is sleeping alone in the cabin’s worn-looking bed when we meet him, wearing orange long johns that suggest a prison jumpsuit. He wakes up with a start, then begins searching for his missing dog, Rascal, who he accuses of […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE VISITOR

THE VISITOR movie review | ©2022 Paramount Pictures

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Finn Jones, Jessica McNamee, Thomas Francis Murphy, Dane Rhodes, Donna Biscoe Writers: Adam Mason & Simon Boyes Director: Justin P. Lange Distributor: Paramount/Epix Release Date: October 7, 2022 THE VISITOR is a moderately well-done what’s-going-on-here horror movie. It is well-acted, nicely atmospheric and has an intriguing set-up. However, THE VISITOR doesn’t seem to know where to go once the big reveal happens. It continues, but ends with more of a whimper than a bang. Londoner Robert Burrows (Finn Jones) and his wife, Maia Eden (Jessica McNamee), move back to Maia’s childhood home in the small U.S. […]Read On »

There’s a short sharp shock opening, and then we’re at Chapter 1, “The Boogeywoman.” Sarah (Belle Adams) and Simon (Ian Michaels) are a nice young couple, having supper at a nice restaurant. Sarah is pregnant. She notices an older woman (Marina Parodi) staring menacingly across the room at her. Then the woman […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE INHABITANT

THE INHABITANT movie poster | ©2022 Lionsgate

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Odessa A’zion, Leslie Bibb, Dermot Mulroney, Lizze Broadway, Jackson Dean Vincent, Mary Buss, Michael Cooper Jr. Writer: Kevin Bachar Director: Jerren Lauder Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: October 7, 2022 Just when horror fans might be forgiven for wondering whether scary movies will ever again feature characters who behave reasonably, along comes THE INHABITANT. This isn’t to oversell THE INHABITANT, which is a decently-executed ghostly possession movie. It’s just a relief to be able to invest in people who react in ways that make sense. A series of title cards over historical photos set the scene for […]Read On »

Russell Director: David O. Russell Distributor: 20th Century Studios Release Date: October 7, 2022 Writer/director David O. Russell likes riffing on history, large-scale and small. He took on the Gulf War in THREE KINGS (1999), a ‘70s FBI scheme and con artists in AMERICAN HUSTLE (2013), and Home Shopping Network staple Joy Mangano in JOY (2015). Now Russell gives us his version of a […]Read On »
