Isle of Dogs

March 23, 2018
If Wes Anderson were to make a film, to tell a story in the tradition of an Akira Kurosawa samurai folklore, then I suppose Isle of Dogs would be the closest thing we could come to expect. His latest, never anything less than visually and aurally gorgeous, has an order to abide to: the urgent, [...]

George Clooney, who produced and co-wrote the script, along with directing the film, is a very capable filmmaker who puts out a quality motion picture. It is unfortunate the content is [...]

Get Low

July 30, 2010

There are very few people who actually know the details of his real story. Many townspeople have conjured [...]

And I just ran out of good things to say because the father, despite owning a job at a newspaper, continues to steal and has his family [...]
