A Perfect Day: Review

Benicio Del Toro and Tim Robbins have done better things. Having won two Oscars between them and been nominated for two more, this screenplay is light weight for them. The treatment seems to be perpetually caught between Mash and Hurt Locker with nods to Catch 22 and Shake Hands with the Devil. The result is

A deceptively simple stop-action movie that packs a fantastic punch. Although the medium will surprise many viewers, its use, combined with the presence of only three voices, focuses the viewer on the message. The exaggerated mechanical motion of the stop action accentuates the stultified gear train that Stone goes through during most of the twenty

The Revenant – Review

Baron Munchausen meets Liver Eating Johnson in this silly but entertaining sage of survival and revenge. Following up his Oscar powerhouse “Birdman” with this rough and ready thriller seems like a non sequitur for director Alejandro Iñárritu. The film has been in the works for about fifteen years and the project had already burned through
