Before I Go To Sleep Review


A lot of emotion but not enough screenplay to keep things moving even for the spare 92 minute run timeNicole Kidman gives it her best shot but there is simply not enough going on in Rowan Joffe’s psychological drama to make it work.

Perhaps this effect is to knock the audience off balance so that they appreciate how off balance Kidman’s character is, but the effect is wasted. Instead of helping the tedious […]

Anxiety and stress over losing a job because of the perception of obsolescence or appearing not vital enough to keep pace in the company is out there, […]

Nightcrawler Review


A flighty but spectacular walk on the mean streets of the new media.Having written the screenplay for “The Bourne Legacy” and other hits, Dan Gilroy apparently decided to take the plunge and try his hand at directing. His debut with “Nightcrawler” may be one of the most spectacularly successful first efforts seen for some time. This is helped, in large measure, by the riveting performance of Jake Gyllenhaal as nebbish video news reporter Louis Bloom. Casting is critical to the success of any picture.
