ON FILM: Kaleidoscope fills August viewing void

posted: 08/11/2017 1:54 a.m. Discuss

August is what show people call a "dump month," when theaters are filled with less promising films.

Review: REVIEW: 'Landline,' a 'nice enough' romantic comedy

posted: 08/04/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Landline, Gillian Robespierre's follow-up to her near-hit debut Obvious Child, is a period piece, set firmly in 1995, before ubiquitous cellphones and internet access. Again working with co-writer Elisabeth Holm and comedian Jenny Slate -- this time in an ensemble rather than star-making context -- Robespierre has produced a milder, more episodic movie that retains Obvious Child's commitment to the way real people talk and behave while lacking its dramatic and emotional thrust.

Critical Mass: 35th reunion at Ridgemont High

posted: 07/30/2017 2:23 a.m. Discuss

"The whole movie is a failure of taste, tone, and nerve -- the waste of a good cast on erratic, offensive material that hasn't been thought through, or maybe even thought about."
