    A Face in the Crowd

    ★★★★★

    Wow. Andy Griffith’s film debut is nothing like what we typically associate with him. I’m stunned. And the story is prescient in its depiction of the power of media figures in politics. Definitely worth watching.

    Strong performances from Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx help propel a story that’s unfortunately all too familiar.

    The Lonely Island hits the big screen with the viciously funny Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.

    ★★★★★

    On the surface, the story of Her sounds a bit silly: a man falls in love with a highly advanced operating system. As it turns out, though, director Spike Jonze has created a love story that’s incredibly relevant for today. The film’s central message: learning to live through heartbreak and coming out better for it. It’s a message that should resonate with anyone who’s ever experienced a bad relationship, romantic or otherwise, and in Her, it’s told with warmth, humor, and not an ounce of cynicism.
