How Black Lives Matter in Sidney Lumet’s The Wiz

The Wiz (1978) Directed by Sidney Lumet Home is knowing. Knowing your mind, knowing your heart, knowing your courage. If we know ourselves, we’re always home, anywhere. – Glinda the Good If I’m being honest with you, it’s taken me far too long to write and publish this post. I knew months ago that The Wiz…

Quick crit and review of Karyn Kusama's long-awaited horror/thriller "The Invitation" | onecriticalbitch.com

The Invitation is Haunted, Cultish, Creepy L.A. Horror at its Best

It took seven years for Karyn Kusama to follow-up her last feature film with The Invitation. It was worth the wait. The Invitation (2016) You look different, Edie.

Quick crit and review of Yorgos Lanthimos' dark comedy "The Lobster" | onecriticalbitch.com

The Lobster: Greek Myths and Lonely Men

The Lobster is the kind of movie you’re going to need to see twice. The Lobster (2016) Because lobsters live for over one hundred years, are blue-blooded like aristocrats, and stay fertile all their lives. I also like the sea very much. Three times. Possibly four. You’re going to need the appropriate amount of viewings to sort…

Celebrating the life of actor Anton Yelchin - Here are 5 of his best films | onecriticalbitch.com

The Best Films of Anton Yelchin

I’m struck by the loss of Anton Yelchin. A week ago I was writing about his fantastic turn in Green Room. Today, I’m writing this. Yelchin passed away Sunday morning in Los Angeles. Taking a look today, I’m struck even more that at only 27 he has left us with such a large reel of film.…

War Babies: Apocalypse Now and Green Room

Let’s talk about war, shall we? “You have to have men that are moral, and at the same time able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill; without feeling, without passion, without judgement. Because it’s judgement that defeats us.” – Colonel Kurtz, Apocalypse Now Apocalypse Now (1979) Directed by Francis Ford Coppola Drop the bomb!…

Charm Makes a Southern Belle: The Notebook and Boy Meets Girl

It’s two days into March and I’m bringing an official (and officially late) end to #ChickFlickFebruary. I wanted to end with something classic. I wanted to end with something new and different. I had a strong desire for something with a bit of a twang, maybe a Southern Belle, and crazy rich mothers with a lot of…

Philomena was NOTHING like what I expected|Read the full review at onecriticalbitch.com | #chickflickfebruary

Philomena: Finding Faith in Stories

Shame on me for assuming Philomena would be precisely the type of “based-on-a-true-story” sentimental feature I hate. Shame on me, because Stephen Frears’ Philomena is a great deal more than that. Philomena (2013) Because ‘human interest story’ is a euphemism for stories about weak-minded, vulnerable, ignorant people, to fill newspapers read by vulnerable, weak-minded, ignorant people. Not that you…

Deadpool has one or two secrets - not least of which is his incredible vanity|Read the full review of Marvel's anti-superhero movie at onecriticalbitch.com | #chickflickfebruary

Deadpool Has a Hard-On (All For Himself)

Deadpool could have been worse. It could have been better. But this is not a place for aimless thumbs up or down or to the side reviews – this is a place for critique. And there is A LOT to critique in Deadpool. Deadpool (2016) You look like Freddy Kruger face-fucked a topographical map of Utah. You may…
