The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 14th, 2014 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Anderson’s Budapest Hotel a Comedic Masterwork I’ve said more than a handful of times in the past that the works of Wes Anderson are arguably made for certain palates, each motion picture a fanciful journey into a highly stylized world acquired tastes adore while everyone else scratches their collective chins wondering what all the fuss […]

The Wind Rises (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 21st, 2014 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

This movie is a titanic achievement that I’m still mulling over, so many pieces of it speaking with such unabashed eloquence calling the finished film an instant classic is almost a no-brainer.

Her (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 20th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Her a Timely Spectacle of Intimacy, Heartbreak and Understanding Spike Jonze is as singular and as original a filmmaker as there is working today. The man behind such iridescent achievements as Being John Malkovich and Adaptation, the idiosyncratic filmmaker has outdone himself with the beguiling, multifaceted science fiction-influenced love story Her. Set in a Los […]

Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 20th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Inside Llewyn Davis revels in its own lyrical idiosyncrasies, each note a tuneful reminder that the songs we sing secretly to ourselves are oftentimes full of bigger lies than the ones we happily hum out loud for the rest of the world to mindlessly listen to.

Frozen (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 27th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

This isn’t just the year’s best animated film, it’s one of 2013’s finest motion pictures period, and as someone who has already seen, and loved, it twice I cannot wait to head out to the theatre and see it again before happily adding it to my personal library when it comes out on DVD and Blu-ray a few months hence.

Blue is the Warmest Color (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 20th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Even at nearly three hours, Blue is the Warmest Color is never out of sorts or unfocused, and while certain tangents have the initial aura of being inconsequential, the filmmaker continually connects all the dots, giving things a ruthless eloquence difficult to describe and even harder to dismiss.

Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 1st, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

This is one of those rare instances where I feel like [Dallas Buyers Club] is one of those movies that, do not just live up to the hype, but also exceed it, making Vallée’s based-on-fact stunner one of the best films I’ll watch this, or in any other, year.

12 Years a Slave (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 25th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

It’s hard to imagine a movie will look into this heart of American darkness with more meticulous an eye anytime soon, McQueen latching onto Northup’s story refusing to allow it to lapse into melodrama or treacle. His filmmaking acumen is beyond reproach, the technical aspects never overshadowing the human story every piece augmenting the next allowing the story to bloom and blossom as it likely wouldn’t have otherwise.

All Is Lost (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 18th, 2013 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

All is Lost is a triumph, no more, and certainly no less, and my gut feeling is that viewers who take up the challenge to see it in a theatre will likely feel the same.
