“Lady Bird” is exactly the type of movie I love, a coming-of-age story taking place over the period of a year, the most important and complicated year in a young person’s life.
“The Post” is not the best journalism movie I’ve ever seen, but it’s clearly a win for journalism, it’s suspenseful, especially for knowing the ending, and it’s great Meryl Streep.
These two essential episodes re-center the focus on the women of the royal family, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, and explain how and why they became the women they were yesterday and are today — royals for a modern age.
Now that we know how the Queen’s and Philip’s conversation ends aboard Britannia, “The Crown” moves on with the rest of its season.
In “A Company of Men,” the Royal Family is not what’s causing a budding scandal in Great Britain; rather, it’s the Parkers causing the stir.
The filmmakers don’t care what Tonya Harding knew. That absence of judgement gives you room to just enjoy the movie, which is creatively filmed and excellently acted.
The filmmakers didn’t set out to make a movie about sexual awakening and female activism. They wanted to make a movie about a tennis match we all know the result of, and they failed to see where the story wanted to go.
“Amarsi Un Po” showcases two of my favorite things about this season of Master of None: the Italian language and the staggering artistry of Aziz Ansari’s filmmaking.
