Stars: Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux, Sam Waterston, Cailee Spaetny, Kathy Bates, Stephen Root, Chris Mulkey Writer: Daniel Stiepleman Director: Mimi Leder Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: December 25, 2018 ON THE BASIS OF SEX tackles two historical subjects: a precedent-setting legal case and the early career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Similar in some respects to last year’s MARSHALL, which concerned an early case of the late Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall, ON THE BASIS OF SEX doesn’t try to tackle Ginsburg’s whole life, or even how she got onto the Supreme Court. Instead it revolves around a single […]Read On »

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU movie poster | ©2018 Annapurna Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, Kate Berlant, Michael X. Sommers, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun, Armie Hammer, Forest Whitaker Writer: Boots Riley Director: Boots Riley Distributor: Annapurna Pictures Release Date: June 6, 2018 SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is agitprop comedy cinema at its most pointed. Director/writer Boots Riley has devised a wicked social satire that takes on race, economics, the corporate state and more. It’s often simultaneously funny and depressing in how close its outrageousness is to reality. Even when the third act takes a turn into sci-fi, the metaphors are grounded. Our […]Read On »

It’s not that it defies big-budget tent-pole movie conventions. Indeed, it has all sorts of set-pieces that are indebted to previous films, including but not limited to the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN series that so gainfully employed star Johnny Depp, director […]Read On »

THE SOCIAL NETWORK movie poster | © 2010 Sony Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Armie Hammer, Joseph Mazzello, Max Minghella Writer: Aaron Sorkin, based on the book THE ACCIDENTAL BILLIONAIRES by Ben Mezrich Director: David Fincher Distributor: Columbia Pictures Release Date: October 1st, 2010 There is a lot of controversy surrounding the accuracy of the storytelling in THE SOCIAL NETWORK. Based loosely on Ben Mezrich’s nonfiction tome THE ACCIDENTAL BILLIONAIRES about the origins of the social networking site Facebook, THE SOCIAL NETWORK has been accused of playing with the facts. This probably doesn’t matter unless one is writing a thesis about the real origins of […]Read On »
