THE FIX, ABC’s Monday-night legal drama, is based (in its first season, at least) on the courtroom experiences of Marcia Clark. Clark gained fame as the prosecutor in the real-life murder case against then-famed football player O.J. Simpson, accused of killing his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was declared not guilty, though he subsequently lost a civil suit brought by the parents of the victims. Clark retired from prosecution and later went into private practice, as well writing books. She’s also one of the executive producers of THE FIX. In THE FIX, former assistant district […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA

Rating: R Stars: Linda Cardellini, Roman Christou, Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, Raymond Cruz, Tony Amendola, Marisol Ramirez, Patricia Velasquez, Sean Patrick Thomas Writers: Mikki Daughtry & Tobias Iaconis Director: Michael Chaves Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: April 19, 2019 THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA is rated R. At first, this is surprising. There’s no nudity, no swearing, and not a whole lot of bloodshed. However, since THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA is, start to finish, about young children in supernatural jeopardy, the R rating is probably warranted. This is despite the film’s tone, which is more movie of the week than bone-chilling. […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Judy Dench, Sophie Woodson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes, Laurence Spellman, Tereza Srbova Writer: Lindsay Shapero, based on the novel by Jennie Rooney Director: Trevor Nunn Distributor: IFC Films Release Date: April 19, 2019 RED JOAN’s Joan Stanley, played at different stages of life by Judy Dench and Sophie Woodson, is not actually a real person. While she is based, very loosely, on the real Melita Norwood, this means that the screenplay by Lindsay Shapero, based on the novel by Jennie Rooney, can go wherever it wants. Norwood was in fact exposed as Britain’s longest-hidden KGB spy. […]Read On »

After five seasons of showing how young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) became Batman, Fox’s GOTHAM will jump ahead ten years in its series finale on Thursday, April 25. All of the characters we’ve been watching will have come into their own. Of all of GOTHAM’s distinct individuals, perhaps the most surprising has been Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin, as played by Robin Lord Taylor. Known in the Batman canon to be venal and villainous, Taylor’s Penguin is unexpectedly sympathetic, a strangely stubborn, vulnerable underdog who makes us root for his survival, if not necessarily his victory. “The collaborative aspect has really […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE WIND

Rating: R Stars: Caitin Gerard, Ashley Zukerman, Julia Goldani Telles, Dylan McTee Writer: Teresa Sutherland Director: Emma Tammi Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: April 5, 2019 THE WIND is an effectively creepy and handsome-looking folk horror film, set on the American prairie in the late nineteenth century. It is deliberately paced, beautifully photographed by cinematographer Lyn Moncrief, and makes great, terrifying use of shadows and light. The principal complaint is that it is needlessly disjointed. Lizzie Macklin (Caitlin Gerard) has been living in an isolated cabin on the plains with her husband Isaac (Ashley Zukerman) for eight years when the […]Read On »

When most people think about Victor Hugo’s sprawling novel LES MISERABLES, originally published in 1862, they associate it with the hugely popular stage musical and its film adaptation.

The newest version of LES MISERABLES, a miniseries originally produced by and aired on the BBC, begins airing in the U.S. on PBS MASTERPIECE on Sunday, April 14. Dominic West stars as reformed criminal Jean Valjean, trying to live a good life as he is pursued over decades by obsessed law officer Javert (David Oyelowo), with revolution […]Read On »
