    What They Had

    ★★★

    WHAT THEY HAD is a sad look at dementia from a place of familial love & support. The entire ensemble is terrific with Robert Forster being the standout as the old-school Irish Catholic patriarch who refuses at his kid’s request to let his wife go into care. Honest but clunky at times with some off audio.

  • Chappaquiddick

    Chappaquiddick

    ★★★

    A well constructed movie with solid performances but a very troubling event and depiction of said events that neither condemns or excuses Ted Kennedy and his actions. Jason Clarke is outstanding though and Ed Helms certainly impressed me. Just shy of being a very good movie. Will have to settle for average.

    ★★★★

    Jim Cummings gives one of the best performances of the year in THUNDER ROAD. I was floored by his commitment to all aspects of production both in front & behind the camera. The film presents the ups and downs of life with such emotional honesty, you’ll either laugh or cry till it hurts.

    Suspiria

    ★★★★

    Imagine if David Lynch, Ingmar Bergman, Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky decided to spawn a demon...it might look like Luca Guadagnino’s bloody, grotesque, sensual, diabolic 2018 remake.

    2018 has officially found its “mother!” and her name is Mother “Suspiria.”
