I know a little something about fanzines, having published one for many years. Young people may not even know the term, which predates the Internet, with its sites and blogs, by many decades. Back then, before there was even widespread access to photocopy machines, I inherited Film Fan Monthly from its founder, Daryl Davy, in May of 1966 and combined it with my much more modest publication, Profile, which was then printed on a mimeograph machine. With a schoolmate, at first, and then my dad, I continued producing FFM every month—which included licking stamps, stuffing envelopes, and hauling bins to the post office—for the next nine years. (If you’re curious, you can explore and even purchase vintage issues HERE.)

I love movies that transport me to a different time and place. Bertrand Tavernier has said that with this film his goal was to make a tale of 16th century France seem so vivid and immediate that there would be no distance between the viewer and the characters on screen. That’s no small feat, but he has accomplished it with style and grace, as you would expect from this humanistic and virtuosic director.

When Blue Sky Studio unveiled its debut feature-film, Ice Age, a decade ago, it became clear that Pixar didn’t have a monopoly on clever storytelling or computer imagery. Now, longtime staff director Carlos Saldanha, who was born in Brazil, has returned to his homeland, cinematically speaking, to create a lively, colorful, thoroughly entertaining animated feature.

There’s nothing more frustrating than wanting a movie to be great and having to admit that it falls short. At one point during The Conspirator I found myself willing it to be more exciting and dynamic, to no avail. It isn’t bad, but it never scales the heights of greatness its story promises and demands.
