  • Film preview: 'The Lighthouse'

    "The Lighthouse" sits comfortably within the recent trend of films that plumb the psyches of men, and drudge up all manner of insanity. Lonely and horny, the characters alternate between seemingly wanting to tear each other to shreds, kiss, or violently screw. In its way, "The Lighthouse" is its own sort of love story.

  • Film review: 'Joker'

    It's one-note, overly serious, and self-satisfied, making for a film that’s alternately tense and kind of tedious. “Joker” so desperately wants its story to be viewed as holding a mirror up to our violent, empty society.

    Re: “Recap: CITY's top movies of 2017

    Hi John! "Three Billboards" is a film that I like quite a bit, but my issues with some of McDonagh's writing/storytelling decisions (which I touched on in my review: https://www.rochestercitynewspaper.com/roc…) have dimmed my opinion on each successive viewing. Though I'd absolutely say that McDormand, Rockwell, and Harrelson's performances all rank amongst the best of the year. Consider it an unofficial honorable mention.

    Thanks for pointing that out R Shea, he's one I missed. The film is chock full o' Western NY natives. Composer David Shire's from Buffalo too!

    Re: “Film review: "The Revenant"

    While this reviewer can't endorse egotistically-directed, pseudo-spiritual adventure stories, he wholeheartedly recommends Donuts Delite, at Empire and Culver.

    Re: “Film Review: "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"

    Hi Kathryn! Thanks for the comment! You may be right, but I'm hoping that by the time I AM in the target demographic, I'll have maintained my sense of humor about it. The movie does, that's for sure. You can definitely expect to find a more than a few jokes in the same vein throughout the film, so be prepared for that once you do see it.
