The Theory of Everything (UK, 2014, James Marsh) Ben Livant: I am not a huge fan of bio-pics, preferring instead a documentary.  I am particularly suspicious of bio-pics about people who are still alive... on whose memoir the movie is based... whom the make...

Olive Kitteridge (USA, 2014, Lisa Cholodenko) Ben Livant: After I watched the first part of this four-part program, I was impressed by how unsympathetic I found the title character.  I had to wonder if the protagonist was going to be some sort of anti-hero;...

Wild (USA, 2014, Jean-Marc Vallée    ) Ben Livant: For a story
supposedly about being out in the world, the wild world at that, Wild pays very little attention to the great outdoors.  The natural environment is merely

Frank (USA, 2014, Lenny Abrahamson) Ben Livant: To be

whole movie starring the advertising mascot for the Jack In The Box burger
chain?  But seriously, are we supposed to take Frank seri...

Get on Up (USA, 2014, Tate Taylor) Ben  Livant: Having gotten it up to review The Theory of Everything, I am now getting it up to review Get On Up.  My treatment of TTOE was quite mean-spirited.  I neglected to mention that Eddie Redmayne's performance as S...

The Firemen's Ball (Czechoslovakia, 1967, Milos Forman) Ben Livant: Sometimes teachers

As Andrea's partner, I have watched hundreds of clients come and go over the years, and they tend to share two things in common. One, they arrive in discomfort and/or pain.
