Liberal Arts (2012)

Radnor has crafted characters who live in the real world and not in some fantastical juvenile celluloid fabrication of it.

The Master (2012)

Anderson’s Master an Enchanting Intellectual Banquet Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master isn’t an easy sit. Its themes are all over the map, and what it’s talking about is purposefully vague. Most notably, it’s never a certainty whose story it is telling, three primary characters all competing for screen time with two of them sharing numerous […]

Arbitrage (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 14th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

For as confident as Jarecki’s handling of it all might be, and as breezily paced as Arbitrage is, it’s just too hard to get past the inherent sense of dramatic déjà vu that permeates the production.

Bachelorette (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 7th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

When Bachelorette gets things right, when it is running at full-speed barking out what’s on its mind and presenting its trio of heroines as the sympathetic complex human messes they are, the comedy soars to heights that had me sitting in the theatre holding back cheers.

“I like that the movie isn’t what people expect it to be. I like that it seems to creep up on people and that they find themselves connecting to it on an emotional level they hadn’t anticipated.”

For a Good Time, Call… (2012)

For a Good Time, Call… disconnects in the middle of its conversation, and as amusing as what it attempts to say might be having the call be so unctuously truncated is annoying to say the least.

Robot & Frank (2012)

While Robot & Frank doesn’t exactly go anyplace all that unexpected, how Schreier handles the material and the emotions he brought out of me certainly were.
