Rating: Not Rated Stars: Mia Wasikowska, Damon Herriman, Benedict Hardy. Gillian Jones, Terry Norris, Brenda Palmer Writer: Mirrah Foulkes Director: Mirrah Foulkes Distributor: Samuel Goldwyn Films Release Date (select theaters, Hulu, VOD): June 5, 2020 JUDY & PUNCH is a movie that makes viewers feel like we’ve stumbled into an odd, secret realm, perhaps the historical edge of the Twilight Zone. Not full-blown fantasy or horror or comedy, but with elements of all three, it’s a beguiling display of folklore cinema. Director/writer Mirrah Foulkes gives us a spooky, once-upon-a-time opening to a tale set in the 16th-century landlocked town of […]Read On »

Rating: PG Stars: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen Writer: Linda Woolverton, based on the books by Lewis Carroll Director: James Bobin Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: May 27, 2016 It’s not at all necessary to have seen 2010’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND to follow what’s happening in ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS. It’s clear enough that Alice (Mia Wasikowska), now a young sea captain in the 1800s by virtue of having inherited her father’s ship, has had some pretty astounding adventures both in Wonderland and in this world. When she returns to Wonderland, […]Read On »

Movie Review: CRIMSON PEAK

CRIMSON PEAK | © 2015 Universal Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam, Jim Beaver Writers: Guillermo Del Toro & Matthew Robbins Director: Guillermo Del Toro Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date (theatrical): October 16, 2015 CRIMSON PEAK is as Gothic as it gets. Set in 1901 New York and northern England, it is not a ghost story, but rather, as our heroine Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) says of her own writing, “a story with ghosts.” This isn’t to suggest that the ghosts aren’t quite scary when they appear, but it’s the mortals who drive the unabashed melodrama forward. Edith is the devoted, […]Read On »

Movie Review: ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE | © 2014 Sony Pictures Classics

Rating: R Stars: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, Mia Wasikowska, Jeffrey Wright Writer: Jim Jarmusch Director: Jim Jarmusch Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics Release Date: April 11, 2014 The notion of watching Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston play characters who are besotted with one another will be enough to get quite a few people into the movie theatre, and those who come for that reason won’t be disappointed by the actors. However, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is not only a love story but also a vampire film. Its narrative style suggests that writer/director Jim Jarmusch hasn’t turned on […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Mia Wasikowska, Dane DeHaan,, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman Writer: Nick Cave, based on the book THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD by Matt Bondurant Director: John Hillcoat Distributor: Weinstein Co. Release Date: August 29, 2012 Once upon a time, movies about moonshine-whisky makers were much more common than they are these days. Enter LAWLESS, which has the feel of a slightly tall tale while still being respectably dramatic and action-filled. We’re in Franklin County,Virginia, a rural place where Prohibition exists as something that is mainly the problem of city […]Read On »
