Review: Hell or High Water

Directed by: David Mackenzie
Written by: Taylor Sheridan
Starring: Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Jeff Bridges

Summary: Two brothers execute an elaborate plan to rob banks in Texas in an effort to keep the ranch their recently departed mother owned. A cop on the eve of his retirement works with his partner to catch them.

Hell or High Water snuck by everyone over the summer. I believe this was in theaters around August and just about nobody saw it, including me. (more…)

Review: Moonlight

Directed by: Barry Jenkins
Written by: Barry Jenkins, based on the story by Tarell Alvin McCraney
Starring: Alex R. Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monaé, Naomie Harris, André Holland

Summary: Told in three parts, Moonlight follows Chiron as he endures the growing pains of growing up gay in the Miami inner city.

Moonlight is a film full of painful and sometimes uncomfortable honesty, but it is beautifully told. When I walked out of the theater after seeing Moonlight the first time I realized, I’ve never seen this story told on screen before. (more…)

Review: Nocturnal Animals

na7

Directed by: Tom Ford
Written by: Tom Ford, based on the book by Austin Wright
Starring: Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson

Summary: A successful art dealer in Los Angeles reads her ex-husband’s manuscript which he has dedicated to her. As she reads the disturbing story she reflects on their previous relationship, its downfall and how it is represented in his latest work.

Nocturnal Animals was my favorite movie of 2016. I was super disappointed to see that it didn’t get the Oscar attention it deserved because, this movie is very well done. Most of the film is Amy Adams (Susan) reading a book. Sounds dull, right? It’s riveting. (more…)
