Too Close Sunday, Apr 18 2021 

A young mother does an unspeakable act and appears to have no memory of it. Emily Watson plays a forensic psychiatrist who is asked to evaluate her. There is a strange bond between the two, some similarities. What caused the crack in the patient’s psyche? What is the nature of the bond between them? Can Emily’s character help the young mother or is this a hopeless case? Well, tune in to find out. The first installment is promising.

Land Saturday, Apr 10 2021 

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!

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.
