    Southpaw 2015

    ★★½ Watched 30 Jul, 2015

    Combine "ROCKY III's" rebuilding-the-champ drama ... "ROCKY V's" loses everything and had to earn it all back ... "CINDERELLA MAN's" parenting struggles ... and the flash and dash of "THE FIGHTER's" tough, neighborhood grit ... and what you get is cinema's latest boxing-drama to hit the silver screen in "SOUTHPAW".

    If you're looking for a film where all the elements that go into film-making and storytelling work to absolute perfection ... look no further than right here in director Jeff Nichols' sophomore effort of "TAKE SHELTER" ... a combination family-drama/apocalyptic horror that hits all the right emotional and dramatic beats for its viewing audience. It's a film about so many things and themes that you can relate to in the real world ... "family responsibility" ... "the mystery of uncertainty"…
