"From The Studio That Brought You “mother!”"

Peter Sobczynski says... "Having already established himself as a novelist with the cult classic “The Beach” and as a screenwriter by penning the likes of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and adaptations of “Never Let Me Go” and “Dredd,” Alex Garland made his directorial debut with 2015’s “Ex Machina,” a story set in the not-too-distant future about a programmer (Domnhall Gleeson) sent by his technological genius boss (Oscar Isaac) to administer the Turing test to a new and advanced form of artificial intelligence, a beautiful humanoid robot (Alicia Vikander). With its combination of startlingly effective visual effects, a trippy screenplay that served both as a enormously effective genre narrative a mind-bending meditation of what it means to be human and strong performances from the three leads, the film was celebrated as one of the best of the year and it even went on to become a modest commercial success as well. More importantly, it immediately established Garland as a filmmaker to watch and made one curious as to see what kind of provocation he might offer up next." (more)
"Aging can put us in a lonely place."

Jay Seaver says... "It's only reasonable to be somewhat skeptical about "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool"; present-day Annette Bening doesn't quite recall the image of Gloria Grahame in one's head, and that is potentially a huge hurdle for the movie to get over, especially since a large part of the audience is people who do have an image of her in her 1940s-1950s heyday in their heads (as opposed to the later years of smaller roles and TV work). It works in large part because the filmmakers are able to use and subvert that dissonance, creating an oft-intriguing story of fighting and accepting the march of time out of it." (more)
"A keeper, and Vega is a find."

Rob Gonsalves says... "The low-key but affecting Chilean drama "A Fantastic Woman," one of 2017’s Best Foreign Language Film nominees, restores the smooth melancholic power of the Alan Parsons Project’s “Time,” long a staple of easy-listening radio. Here it feels like a deep bruise of loss." (more)
"A sedate prequel to 'All the President's Men.'"
3 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "It seems unlikely, but "The Post" marks the first time Steven Spielberg has put the Vietnam War on the screen." (more)
