‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ Review and Barry Jenkins Interview

Barry Jenkins’ stunning adaptation of James Baldwin’s novel, If Beale Street Could Talk, is poetry in motion. A gripping narrative and vivid imagery transcends the page and illuminates the big screen as Tish Rivers (KiKi Layne) shares her scattered tale of true love and tackles adversity in 1970s Harlem. Throughout the film, we feel submerged in her world as Jenkin’s artful direction floods viewers with vibrant colors, groovy tunes, and the threat of danger lurking in the dark corners of her neighborhood.

‘Outlaw King’ Review

Outlaw King is a sweeping epic beautifully and brutally depicting Robert Bruce’s (Chris Pine) arduous efforts to unite all Scots and free Scotland from British rule.

The intensely gripping pilot takes you on an […]

‘Beast’ Review: A Chilling Tale of Love and Suspicion

Michael Pearce’s spellbinding debut feature, Beast, captures the audience’s attention from beginning to end. This riveting, intense, unsettling and surprisingly funny film consistently challenges the viewer’s perception of the charismatic and suspicious protagonists, Moll (Jessie Buckley) and Pascal (Johnny Flynn). These kooky kindred spirits are drawn together by an […]

‘Submergence’ Review: A Disappointing Romantic Thriller

Submergence takes on multiple meanings in this romantic thriller. Danielle Flinders (Alicia Vikander) literally dives to the very bottom of the Greenland Sea on an exploratory mission, while her beloved James Moore (James McAvoy) remains immersed in his deep cover as a captured operative. At their lowest points, both […]
