An outstanding directorial and acting effort by Robin Wright. A big change in role from the First Lady in House of Cards. After a personal tragedy , a middle aged woman decides to purchase a cabin in the wilderness. She finds she is not really prepared for the demands of dealing with animals ( a bear who interrupts a trip to the outdoor privy) and the loneliness and privations of winter which is longer in the mountains. During the winter she is rescued by a man well versed in survival in the mountains. He brings a nurse in to help her regain her strength. But this really isn’t about romance. They have similar tragedies to deal with. It is a truly sincere and deep friendship that heals both of them. I really recommend this film.

The Father Tuesday, Mar 30 2021 

Anthony Hopkins is exceptionally good in this movie based on a theatre play. It is quite cleverly done . The way the characters are shuffled around the audience becomes as confused as the Alzheimer’s patient. I would expect to see an Oscar nomination. The wealth of emotion and intelligence in this portrayal is striking.

Condor Tuesday, Mar 23 2021 

Another series that successfully reconfigures the work in the movie – past. In this case “Six Days of the Condor”. Max Irons is engaging as the lead – He has good genes in his favor. William Hurt adds a touch of class as well as other veteran actors. Good writing, great pace. Action adventure fans – rejoice!

Penguin Bloom Saturday, Feb 27 2021 

I invariably like Naomi Watt’s work. This is a little gem of a film. And it is based on a true story. Through the love and concern of a bird (repaying the rescue of said bird when very young).a very depressed woman and her children learn to handle all the woe and drawbacks of being wheel- chair bound. And Sam was very active before her accident – an accomplished surfer. Then the mynah bird , Penguin, enters the scene and slowly but surely wins everyone’s hearts. A great film for the kids to watch with you.

Wisely the individuals behind this project chose to stick with a lot of the creative decisions that made the film “Silence of the Lambs” such a critical success. The tone of this new program carries on where the film leaves off. The lead actress also seems to have gleaned good information from the movie. This is the best new offering that I have seen so far on network television.

the little things Sunday, Jan 31 2021 

I don’t remember a time when Denzel Washington has given a bad performance. This portrayal of a California cop is one of his best. It is deep and subtle. Well written and directed film also. There are no definitive answers as to whom the serial killer is at the end of the film – but I suspect that happens in real life. The seedy underside of Los Angeles is in full view.

The Dig Saturday, Jan 30 2021 

I’ve heard some reviewers panned this film – but I’m not going to follow suit. Carey Mulligan does a fine job portraying her character as does Ralph Fiennes – and it is quite a remarkable story- a true story. As in life, there are moments happy and sad. But it is a quality film about an incredible discovery at the opening moments of World War II.’

Promising Young Woman Thursday, Jan 21 2021 

This is a tour de force for Carey Mulligan. Indeed she plays a promising young woman. In fact she is so in character she was hard to recognize at times. There is Oscar buzz about her performance and it is well deserved. The “Me too” movement should be pleased. A spotlight is being aimed at the mistreatment of young women by immature young men – or men of any age. I won’t spoil it, the ending is unusual and surprising.
