Review: Live By Night

Figures blasts off at box office

Review: Patriots Day

posted: 01/13/2017 1:43 a.m. Discuss

Like the heroic Bostonians it celebrates, civilians and law enforcement both, Peter Berg's Patriots Day gets the job done. The director's second big-screen release of the year -- and his third portrait of front-line heroism starring Mark Wahlberg, after Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon -- the movie is, for Berg, a characteristically high-powered rendition of a real-world disaster that's still fresh in the collective memory. If nothing else, Berg proves himself a master of filmmaking efficiency; he made this technically complex action piece in a matter of months.

Happy birthday. It's not enough for you to have a good experience, because you want epic. You'll get that, too, especially when you make an effort in March (and again in June). Hard workers inspire you to work harder in the hot months. You'll sock away money to focus on an August opportunity. Taurus and Gemini adore you.

Review: Silence

posted: 01/13/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

Martin Scorsese's Silence is a story of faith and anguish. It tells of a Portuguese Jesuit priest, Father Rodrigues, who in 1643 heads into the dark heart of Japan, where Christians are being persecuted -- boiled alive, immolated and crucified. Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield) sets out to help keep the church alive in Japan. Scorsese's work has long involved struggles of faith of one kind or another. In Silence the struggle begins in a mist-wreathed landscape where severed human heads rest on a crude shelf, like trophies of some ghastly victory.
