Margaret (Lonergan, 2011)

Margaret is a movie full of ideas. Very much post-9/11, harboring a rich and terrifying history of legal troubles, it’s a movie about parents and children (surrogate mothers, absent fathers), and growing up in a new America, or maybe more specifically, a new New York. 611 more words

REVIEW: Christine

Sundance Film Festival

If “Nightcrawler” had a spiritual prequel, Antonio Campos’ “Christine” might fit the bill. This true story of 1970s news anchor Christine Chubbuck, played with masterful precision by Rebecca Hall, hinges on the maddening descent of local television into the “if it bleeds, it leads” culture. 303 more words
