For your consideration: 12 Years a Slave

For your consideration: 12 Years a Slave

Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong'o and Chiwetel Ejiofor in 12 YEARS A SLAVE

12 Years A Slave will be a must-see film, not just in 2013, but for many years to come. You can expect this film to be shown in classes and universities from now on, not only for its historic value, but also for its excellence in the art of story telling and filmmaking. Is it brutal?  Yes, but much like Schindler’s List, it is a film that opens the uneasy door into history, and as they say, “you…

Robert Reich in  Inequality for All

Inequality For All is a documentary, but it feels more like a college lecture. A lecture well worth sitting through!

Many of his actual crewmembers heavily dispute the depiction of Captain Phillips’ actions during the pirate take over of their…

Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker in The Butler

The film is loosely based on the real life of Eugene Allen, who I’m sure was a much more interesting man than the character Cecil Gaines. Lee Daniels’ The Butler tries to cover entirely too much in the 132 minute run time and lacks the impact the film should have conveyed. (more…)

All is Lost

All Is Lost is a survival story of one man, played by Robert Redford, who encounters some big trouble on the Indian Ocean and must struggle to survive. The premise may be interesting, a la Cast Away, but I was lost and unimpressed with All Is Lost.

There is a good reason why feature-length films have dialogue. Dialogue not only moves the story along, but also tells us perhaps a backstory,…

Ushio Shinohara in 'Cutie and the Boxer'

This documentary shares the love and life of an unusual artistic couple, Ushio Shinohara and his wife Noriko.  They first met in 1969.  Ushio was a 41-year-old avant-garde artist in New York City. Noriko was a 19-year-old art student who idolized Ushio’s art and passion for his work. Ushio’s work often gained notoriety, appearing in numerous prestigious institutions, but rarely sold. Noriko was…
