Review: “Personal Shopper”

Olivier Assayas’s latest film once again stars the criminally underrated  Kristen Stewart.  But while “Clouds of Sils Maria” fit neatly into the drama category, “Personal Shopper” is far more ambiguous. Perhaps the easiest way to sum it up is a gothic drama about a young woman who feels trapped between the living and the dead. [...]

Review: “Café Society”

“Café Society” – During woeful times, Americans tend to turn to movies for escape, and the Great Depression is a prime example.  This marriage between big screen entertainment and the economically-challenged general public soared in the 1930’s, and it is no coincidence that Hollywood’s Golden Age began during this time.

Review: “Equals”

Cautionary tales of futuristic governments that excessively regulate human emotions and needs have been around for a long time.  Quality renditions of these stories are few and far between.  The obvious classics stand out; “Metropolis”, “1984”, “Logan’s Run,  and “Gattaca” immediately come to mind.  “Equals” borrows from many of these, but never does anything to [...]
