Movie Review '55 Steps'
55 Steps is unquestionably a tearjerker—it just happens to be a high calibur tearjerker. This is a superb film that features a pair of lead performances that just work. Helena Bonham Carter and Hilary Swank are given all the room in the world to emote and overact and instead both actresses find near perfect tones for their performances that bridge a perfect gap between the broad strokes of drama and the authenticity of a based-on-a-true story movie. In 55 Steps, Carter portrays Eleanor Riese, a ...

30 Years of Almodovar's 'Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown'
Pedro Almodovar is a wonderful director. His talent for insight and his strange sensibilities consistently surprise. This could not be more true of his 1988 farce, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, which cobbles together elements of 50s rom-coms with the overheated dramatics of a telenovela to wonderful comic effect. As the film turns 30 years old this weekend, November 9 to 11, it's as good of a time as any for a review of this work of fluffy comic strangeness which has since inspired ...

How Marketing Undermines Suspense in 'The Girl in the Spider's Web'
Two trailers for the new Sony action movie The Girl in the Spider’s Web illustrate something about modern Hollywood marketing that should make you more wary of movie trailers. These two trailers go a long way toward spoiling almost everything about this twisty thriller that thrives on creating suspense—suspense that is drained away almost completely if you watch the trailers. The illustrative lesson at hand from these trailers is that Hollywood marketers do not care about your experience of the ...

'Bohemian Rhapsody'—Movie Review
It’s inevitable. Multiple biopics are now created on a yearly basis, and will continue to be made until the end of time. In my opinion, if not a single writer can come up with an original concept, the...
