Review: ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’

Review: “Swan Song”

Swan Song “Swan Song” boldly takes an age-old, mortal question, sets it in the near future, and asks what we would do if we were faced with the same set of circumstances.

Movie Review: CODA

Coda If you take Coda literally, in music, it refers to “the concluding passage of a piece or movement, typically forming an addition to the basic structure.” However, the film “CODA” implies a double entendre, referring to the “child of deaf adults.” "CODA" premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival and opened the 2021 Phoenix [...]

My glee wasn’t over the fact that the film laments relationships that are on the fritz, nor that we've forgotten how to communicate with one another.
