    The French Connection

    ★★★½

    Don't talk to me about ambiguous endings if your fictional movie has title cards telling where everybody is in 5 years.

    Live by Night

    ★★

    Hoo boy if you prefer your historical fiction to be an over-stuffed paean to man-god Ben Affleck featuring copious amounts of expository narration have I got a doozy for you.

    City Lights

    ★★★★½

    A lighthearted comedy about homelessness, suicide, disability, manic depression, substance abuse, handguns, bipolar disorder, drunk driving, robbery, rheumatic fever, and incarceration.

    Ladies and gentlemen.....the 1930s!

  • The Drop

    The Drop

    ★★★★

    Where Killing Them Softly slogged through dull monologues and heavy handed allegory and where Out of the Furnace depended on convenient tragedies and unlikely relationships, The Drop is a lean, calmly paced, dive-y crime drama.

    Tom Hardy sparkles as the stilted, soft-spoken bartender, but seriously why are folks still going into business with the Chechen mob?
