Style: A new Marshall in town

Reginald Hudlin hasn’t made a movie in 15 years, and heretofore his work has largely consisted of broad comedies. So why not give him a shot at directing a bio-pic of Thurgood Marshall, the first black justice to serve on the United States Supreme Court?

As it turns out, Hudlin was an interesting (if not inspired) choice, and the resultant film, Marshall, is a lively courtroom procedural that wisely does not try to survey the Great Man’s life but instead takes a granular look at one of his most important (and sensational) early cases. Our Philip Martin has a review.

In other movie news, Dan Lybarger takes on the PG-13 horror flick Happy Death Day and Piers Marchant goes deep into the origins of a certain comic book hero in his review of Professor Marston and the Wonder Women. And Jackie Chan is back, in a subdued, non-comedic role in the thriller The Foreigner.

All this, and Karen Martin’s weekly look at recently released home video, in Friday’s Style section in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
