It’s rare to find a movie that isn’t ironic or aloof, especially in its overarching goal, to pay tribute to an unpopular enterprise that paid off for posterity.

Sometimes one great performance makes a film worth seeing. That is precisely the case with Bill Murray’s interpretation of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 'Hyde Park on Hudson.'

People who attend the Telluride Film Festival for the first time are overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of this historic Colorado town. Filmmakers are impressed by the friendly reception they receive from the worldwide gathering of movie lovers. My family and I love our annual trip to the Rockies and feel fortunate to attend. The jam-packed schedule over Labor Day weekend is an embarrassment of riches.

Get Low is one of the treats of the summer movie season, a modest film that offers ample rewards, not the least being the opportunity to watch wonderful actors at work. The setting is Tennessee during the Great Depression. Robert Duvall is well cast as a man who’s lived as a hermit for the past forty years. One day he turns up in town and asks the local preacher to hold his funeral—while he’s still alive. Over the course of the film we learn what has brought him to this moment, and what drove him away from his friends and neighbors so many years ago.
