Elvis (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 24th, 2022 - Movie Reviews

If this overheated phantasmagorical whirligig didn’t quite set my heart on fire, thanks in large part to Butler’s mesmerizing magnificence, I still couldn’t have stopped falling in love with Elvis even had I wanted to try.

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain (2021)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 11th, 2021 - Movie Reviews

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain is a suitably strange biopic that goes out of its way to emulate the documented idiosyncratic peculiarities of its subject. It’s also a movie I wish I enjoyed far more than I frustratingly did.

Mank (2020)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 4th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

Mank is nothing more than a metaphorical celluloid sled of failed dreams and misguided ambition burning to ash in a fiery furnace fueled by frustratingly combustible emptiness.

The Traitor (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 6th, 2020 - Movie Reviews

The Traitor is a sprawling exposé that covers decades of criminal escapades, all of it seen through the eyes of a man who refuses to consider himself an informer.

Harriet (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 1st, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Harriet is more than a dramatic history lesson. It is a piece of filmmaking excellence I am almost certain to revisit, and a film I’m fairly positive I’ll appreciate even more once I have done so.

Rocketman (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 30th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Fletcher is channeling All That Jazz and Absolute Beginners but with a Hairspray meets Mamma Mia! high-gloss glittery shimmer, the grit and angst of the tortured artist juxtaposed against a Technicolor milieu that’s been art directed and costumed within an inch of its rockabilly heart.

Bernie (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 18th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Bernie is simply unlike anything else out there making its way through the multiplexes right now. It is unique and tells a story many have never heard about with intelligence, style and panache.
