The Kids Are All Right (Review)

An unconventional family grows up in Lisa Cholodenko's latest indie gem

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 28, 2010
For a film about family, Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right effectively twists the dynamics in ways both obvious and subtle. As a long-together lesbian couple, Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore) have achieved a degree of domestic perfection that defies convention by being utterly conventional in its own way. Grade A.  

Alice in Wonderland (Review)

Tim Burton's adaptation a big disappointment

0 Comments · Friday, March 5, 2010
It's expected that a 2009 adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Victorian-era 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking Glass' would engage in some major contemporary revisionism, and the biggest change in Tim Burton's new 3-D movie version is to make Alice the kind of defiantly strong-willed, proto-feminist, no-nonsense action-hero suitable for a PG-rated action-fantasy seeking to do 'Lord of the Rings'-level box-office business. It's a mistake. Grade: C.
