We the Animals
I am disappointed to report that Jeremiah Zagar's film adaptation of We the Animals is not good. There are going to be some spoilers below, so if you haven't read the novel and don't want it spoiled, you better stop now and go get the book. It's great! It w...

Two Foreign Language Entries
Two of this year's foreign language submissions. I saw both of them at the Tallahassee Film Society, and I'm very grateful that the TFS exists. I loved both of these films! The Cakemaker (Der Kuchenmacher) (האופה-מברלין) is Israel's submission. It's a beaut...

The Snows of Kilimanjaro (1952)
I am not totally sure why I was as bored by The Snows of Kilimanjaro as I was, but it struck me as an extraordinarily static film with only melodramatic content. Its much vaunted cinematography and its beautiful images of Africa and its fauna were only ther...

Hereditary
Hereditary was scary and also batshit crazy. It's a bit too much like Rosemary's Baby for my taste, but the first hour is aces and it has some great performances.

Disobedience
Even though this is of gay interest, and I was looking forward to it, I found Disobedience kinda boring. It's the filmmaking, really. Sebastián Lelio, who made the fabulous Gloria , made last year's A Fantastic Woman , which was also boring. Now he has made...

Gabriel and the Mountain
I found Gabriel e a Montanha to be a fascinating character study. It's also gorgeously shot, and it also concerns itself with the people in Zambia, Kenya, Malawi, and Tanzania who encountered Gabriel at the end of his life. I really enjoyed this.

Will Glenn Close Finally Get an Oscar?
The Wife is fine. This is a story about a woman who is married to a very, very famous writer – perhaps the best writer of his generation. From the beginning of the film, however, something seems not quite right. The writer includes his wife in conversations...

The Death of Stalin
Iannucci is a great political satirist, and The Death of Stalin is occasionally very, very funny. Jason Isaacs is great, as usual, and Andrea
Riseborough (as she is in almost every movie she's in) is best in show
here, and Rupert Friend is also excellent....

Magyarok (Magyars)
Magyarok is respectable and moving. It's one of those post-1960s nationalist films that were made all over Eastern Europe during that time. At first I thought this would be a kind of you-ignored-the-Nazis-at-your-peril kind of movie, but it isn't that at al...

On Chesil Beach
On Chesil Beach just doesn't work. It's a little tragedy of a story, based on a novella by Ian McEwan, and I can see why this story about a tragic love affair would be deeply moving on the page. On film, however, On Chesil Beach feels clunky, as though the ...
