Director Appreciation Week 2 Review: Nights and Weekends (2008)

This is perhaps the most under-appreciated film of the mumblecore genre. It focuses upon the long distance relationship between James (Joe Swanberg) and Mattie (Greta Gerwig). 247 more words


Director Appreciation Week 2 Review: LOL (2006)

New York Film Review: ‘20th Century Women’

The last time the writer-director Mike Mills (“Thumbsucker”) made a drama about one of his parents, the result was a screwball triumph. In “Beginners” (2010), he told the story of his father (played by a deliriously unbound Christopher Plummer), who came out as gay at 75, the very same week he was diagnosed with cancer (you can’t make this stuff up), which didn’t keep him from living out 40 years’ worth of repressed desire, all to the awestruck agitation of his son (Ewan McGregor). 1,209 more words
