Honey Boy

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Where Honey Boy is most successful is in the opening sequence. With mostly quick cuts of Otis between performing on film sets and out of control in his car or dressing room, there is the suggestion that Otis is not totally able to distinguish life in or out of the studio, an existence of constant disorientation.

Invisible Life

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: One of the recurring visual motifs in Invisible Life is the use of frames within frames as restricted spaces.

Motherless Brooklyn

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Taking the film on its own merits, what Norton does right is the introduction of Moses Randolph, portrayed by Alec Baldwin.

My Name Is Pedro

Andrew Wyatt @ The Lens

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Sciamma knows how to make her points without the need for underlining. There are moments of sly subversiveness at play throughout the film.

The Report

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: What makes The Report timely is that it offers some perspective on the Mueller Report and the current arguments about Executive authority. Essentially, who is presenting the narrative, and what information is to be shared and with whom?
