Jackie Movie Review

Pablo Larrain’s Jackie presents a subject in a horrific stage of grief on a stage very few can identify with. Dealing with loss is a universal feeling. 401 more words

This review was originally written for Blueprint: Review.

Todd Solondz is almost the dictionary definition of an acquired taste when it comes to film. For most directors, subjects like rape, dead parents, domestic terrorism and a lifetime of remorse wouldn’t necessarily inspire a comedy, yet they’re all par for the course with Solondz in this darkly comic anthology following the various owners of an ambivalent female dachshund. 479 more words

20th Century Women


Not so much a film about women as their life-changing influence upon one young man, 20th Century Women has the great misfortune to be released amidst a crop of bigger, more hard-hitting films, which means it isn’t really getting the degree of attention it  deserves. 355 more words


Snapshot Reviews: Moonlight, Silence, 20th Century Women

Although some considerable time has passed since my initial viewings of these movies, preventing me from confidently writing an individual post for each, I wanted to take at least a little time to highlight just what makes three of last year’s best films so great. 946 more words

Review: 20th Century Women

Director: Mike Mills

Stars: Annette Benning, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig

Forrest Gump’s mother talked a load of horseshit. Life may indeed be like a box of chocolates, but people who don’t know what to expect in a box of chocolates probably need to go back to school and start over. 955 more words



Jackie (Drama); Elenco: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, John Hurt, Caspar Phillipson; Direção: Pablo Larraín; Chile/França, 2016. 100 Min.

Enfim Pablo Larraín fez alguma coisa mediana, se compararmos com a sua contundência em “Post Mortem” (2010), “No” (2012), “O Clube” (2015) e até mesmo “Neruda” (2016) que, apesar de ser eivado de humor, deixa escapar um viés político sagaz. 666 more words
