At the movies: Furious Seven.

This was a difficult film to write about. For a lot of reasons. But I think I got at what didn't work, as well as how difficult the circumstances under which the film was made and finished were.

At the movies: Maps to the Stars.

A new Cronenberg film is always a sign to rejoice. And this one is a humdinger, to be sure. Violent, moody, offputting, and relentless and bereft of pity- this is something very special indeed.
