‘Shoplifters’ is a deeply moving look at the meaning of family

December 9th, 2018|

In Shoplifters, family isn’t something you’re necessarily born with – it’s something you build. Winner of the top prize at the most recent Cannes Film Festival, Shoplifters is a film with a bottomless amount of compassion, one that very well may be one of the most emotional movie-going experiences of the year. In Hirokazu Kore-eda’s latest, we’re introduced to a poverty-stricken Japanese family who barely make ends meet by shoplifting. When Osamu and his son [...]

Making MIAMI Film General – All Over the World!

December 6th, 2018|

The Miami film scene received another tremendous boost this past Monday. As part of a new $37 million investment in the arts, the Knight Foundation dedicated at least $4 million of that toward “making film general in Miami”, to paraphrase the Foundation’s mission to make art general in Miami, a project begun in 2007 that continues to display spectacular results.

Now it’s once again the focal point in writer-director Elizabeth Chomko’s family drama, What They Had. But Chomko’s debut doesn’t fall into either of the aforementioned categories. Instead, What They Had can only be described as a more intimate affair, an [...]

Rock climbing documentary ‘Free Solo’ is a thrilling big-screen experience

October 24th, 2018|

To watch Free Solo is to willingly thrust yourself into a vertiginous, panic-inducing, heart-palpitating setting for nearly two hours. That right there alone would usually be the highest praise I have to offer a documentary of this nature. But the most impressive part of Free Solo isn’t the astonishing athletic feat that’s on display, nor is it the sweeping, enveloping cinematography that demands to be seen on the biggest screen you can find. No, what makes this transcend just another action documentary is [...]
