Leon: The Professional (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Not too far back, Brian White covered the 20th anniversary release of director Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element on 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray.  Because he likes me/feels bad for me/wanted to be generous/something, we agreed to split the Besson 4K Ultra-HD Blu-rays coming out in July (In preparation for Valerian and the City of a Thousand […]

Song To Song (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Terrence Malick has been on a tear in this current decade (Do we call it “the tens” or whatever?). It once took the man thirty eight years to put out five films, now he’s put out five works in the last six or seven years (One of said films is a documentary). I actually still […]

Heat – Director’s Definitive Edition (Blu-ray Review)

In the Fall of 2016, I was able to attend a screening of Heat at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which boasted a brand new 4K restoration of the film, supervised by writer/director Michael Mann. Not that I needed a reminder of how great Mann’s Los Angeles crime saga is, but I […]

The Full Modern Malick Effect Continues In ‘Song To Song’ (Movie Review)

It can be mean, alienating and condescending to tell something they don’t “get” a movie. Terrence Malick, a filmmaker who has gone from reclusive and rarely making films to prolific, yet still reclusive as a person, seems to be making a conscious effort to challenge the notion of understanding cinema. His recent output has maintained […]

Jackie (Blu-ray Review)

Finding the right focus and exploring a character in interesting ways is what I enjoy when it comes to biopics. Jackie has the right idea. This is not a film about the life of Jackie Kennedy. It also doesn’t place her in a supporting role, so we can follow someone else around and observe her […]

‘Jackie’ Looks Into The Mind Of A Bereaved First Lady (Movie Review)

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Four New Indie Titles

While big movies seem to be scraping the bottom of the low expectations barrel this week, there’s no shortage of surprising smaller film fare.  (How about that?!)  In any case we’re braving lawmen after SS officers, bodyguards with mental issues, disenchanted Jewish moms and even Harry Potter as an undercover skinhead to bring you the […]

Knight Of Cups (Blu-ray Review)

This Hollywood-based effort from writer/director Terrence Malick seemed to only leave a small impact in the year of its release, but Knight of Cups certainly feels like the director continuing to challenge himself. At the risk of repeating himself to the point of self-parody, one of the most elusive auteur directors made a Los Angeles […]

‘Knight Of Cups’ Is An Auteur In Overdrive (Movie Review)

It may be more worthwhile to examine the ‘what if’ scenario of what a superhero film directed by Terrence Malick would be like, rather than try to decipher his latest feature, Knight of Cups, but I’m going for it anyway. At the risk of repeating himself to the point of self-parody, one of the most […]
