All the Kings Men

September 22, 2006
This film is one of those which starts out pretty good, and gets worse as it goes. Willie Stark begins campaigning as a man who tells it like it is, and he cares for the "hicks" and little people. His aim is to be elected governor of Louisiana. With an evangelistic style for his political pulpit, [...]

Proof

October 14, 2005
"Proof" deals with mental illness, the closeness of a father and daughter and how they both dealt with the reality of their situation. It seemed like you were watching a play instead of a movie, but that is because it is based on a play written by David Auburn. He also wrote the screenplay for [...]

Hearts in Atlantis

September 28, 2001
Skillfully directed by Hicks (Shine, Snow Falling on Cedars) and masterfully photographed by the late Anton Yelchin (15 Minutes), this is a beautifully written and uncanny coming of age tale that reflects the older films of Frank Capra or John Ford. Watching this film was like reading a good book. [...]

The Elephant Man

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Wow! This is based on the true story of Joseph Merrick, who lived in the nineteenth century, and this film is so well done that the viewer can't help but be moved. The acting is top rate, as is the direction, and it was a good decision to film this movie in black and white as it lends a dark mood [...]
