Rating: R Stars: Kristen Stewart, Timothy Spall, Sean Harris, Sally Hawkins, Jack Farthing, Jack Nielen, Freddie Spry, Elizabeth Berrington, Stella Gonet, Amy Manson, James Harkness Writer: Steven Knight Director: Pablo Larrain Distributor: Neon Release Date: November 5, 2021 SPENCER announces itself in an opening title card as “a fable from a true tragedy.” The movie feels like a kind of tone poem about Lady Diana Spencer, aka Diana, Princess of Wales, played here by Kristen Stewart. Given that writer Steven Knight and director Pablo Larrain start out by stating that SPENCER is not meant to be taken literally, we don’t […]Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Thekla Reuten, Emun Elliott, Sam Hazeldine, Bill Paterson, Rebecca Front, Elijah Wolf, Dawn Steele, Peter Mullan Writers: Elbert van Strien and Ben Hopkins, based on a short film by Elbert van Strien Director: Elbert van Strien Distributor: Scatena & Rosner Films Release Date: November 3, 2021 MARIONETTE succeeds in pulling the audience’s strings. After seeming to go in one direction for approximately its first half, the film swerves, then swerves again. Every time it seems to make a misstep, an explanation is sooner or later provided. Based on a short film by Elbert van Strien, who […]Read On »

Movie Review: NIGHT AT THE EAGLE INN

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Amelia Dudley, Taylor Turner, Beau Minniear, Greg Schweers Writers: Carson Bloomquist & Erik Bloomquist (also produced and edited together) Director: Erik Bloomquist Distributor: 1091 Pictures Release Date: November 2, 2021 NIGHT AT THE EAGLE INN plays like a longer-than-normal but not-bad TWILIGHT ZONE episode. The filmmakers are well aware of this. Their characters name-check that series, along with Norman Bates, Jack Torrance, and even Annie Wilkes. This seems partly to speed things along, and partly as a cheeky assurance that, yes, everybody knows they’re doing a riff on a well-established form. Fraternal adult twins Sarah (Amelia […]Read On »

Movie Review: ANTLERS

ANTLERS movie poster | ©2021 Fox Searchlight

Rating: R Stars: Keri Russell, Jesse Plemons, Jeremy T. Thomas, Graham Greene, Scott Haze, Amy Madigan, Sawyer Jones Writers: Henry Chaisson & Nick Antosca and Scott Cooper, based on the short story “The Quiet Boy” by Nick Antosca Director: Scott Cooper Distributor: Fox Searchlight Release Date: October 29, 2021 ANTLERS has a great monster design. It also creates a good analogy between the text of its horror premise and the subtext of a real-world version. It also has loads of creepiness and atmosphere, courtesy of Scott Cooper’s direction. However, thematically speaking, ANTLERS winds up biting off more than it can […]Read On »

It’s an ambitious animated myth that presents a series of thematically-tied stories, including a creation legend. We see a beautiful starry universe. Then […]Read On »

Virgil and Billy’s mom Grace (Maura Tierney) are no longer together, and Virgil is not the most responsible person, but in his way, he tries to help his son. Virgil is rather resentful that town sheriff/Grace’s lover Del Harris (Jeff Daniels) is also trying to help Billy. Additionally, […]Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Eleanor Lambert, Xxavier Polk, Claudia Black, Paige Kay, Sebastian Beacon, Dwele, Jeannine Thompson, Peter Knox, Asher Atkisson, Ashli Sheri, Aaron Matthew Atkisson Writer: Spencer King Director: Spencer King Distributor: Dark Star Pictures/Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: October 26, 2021 TIME NOW is a slow, somber family drama. At its best, TIME NOW can be said to be a steady build to what can happen when someone is desperate to blame anybody else for their own shortcomings. Director and writer Spencer King illustrates this point well. Unfortunately, TIME NOW is one of those movies that too often tries […]Read On »
