    Postcards From the Edge

    Wise and funny and so well-acted. Saw this at the theater when I was 12, loved it then too, I must have been a pretty worldly 12-year-old!

    Meryl Streep is beyond great here, such a radiant ending, too.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A bleak and disturbing horror film that is somehow simultaneously a rousing, emotionally gratifying, edge-of-your-seat crowd pleaser. Also not surprising that it’s just a real good yarn, being based on a story by the son of Stephen King.

    It was gunning for a solid 4.5/5 but it seemed to wrap itself up far too quickly and cleanly for me. After such a great buildup I wanted more of a climax. But I really loved it otherwise, and that might not bother me on subsequent viewings (of which there definitely will be some).

    It's been a Cronenberg family kind of day, what can I say?

    How can a movie simultaneously be one of the most viscerally disturbing monster movies ever AND one of the most heartbreaking, tragic love stories of the 1980s? It's a rarity to find a movie that hits so squarely on all intended marks (scares, suspense, gross-out moments, special effects, emotional intensity...), but David Cronenberg's still-stunning remake of THE FLY (oh yeah, it's also one of the greatest remakes of…
