REVIEW: 'Transcendence'

posted: 04/18/2014 2:03 a.m. Discuss

As futuristic thrillers about the rise of the machines go, Transcendence is somewhat elevated by a classy cast and smoothly integrated CGI. But it lacks any genuine philosophical heft.

REVIEW: Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me

posted: 04/18/2014 2:02 a.m. Discuss

Elaine Stritch, a Broadway fixture since 1944, hasn’t lost her lust for the spotlight. This now 89-year-old Tony and Emmy winner (for her role as the mother of Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy in NBC’s 30 Rock), whose salty humor is tempered with the challenges of aging, diabetes and alcoholism, is the subject of a respectful documentary by first time director Chiemi Karasawa.

REVIEW: Le Week-End

posted: 04/18/2014 2:01 a.m. Discuss

In Roger Michell’s Le Week-End, older British couple Nick (Jim Broadbent) and Meg (Lindsay Duncan ) go to Paris to celebrate their anniversary. You might think that sounds like a nice little premise for a movie, and if you know Michell’s comedies like 1999’s Notting Hill or 2010’s Morning Glory, you might suspect something along the lines of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel or Quartet, a sweet story leavened by the realities of growing old not quite gracefully.

Venerable actress Stritch is a worthy subject

posted: 04/18/2014 1:50 a.m. Discuss

Chiemi Karasawa may be just beginning her directing career with the new documentary Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me, but her Internet Movie Database page is impressively long.

PREVIEWS

COMING ATTRACTIONS
