    One Day—movie review

    Sometimes, a successful play or a popular book—even a comic book—has qualities that just don’t transfer to the screen. One Day is based on a best-selling novel, and the producers hired its author, David Nicholls, to write the screenplay, since he’s had plenty of exper...

    Amigo—movie review

    Amigo ought to be a great film: the subject is fascinating and still resonates today, even though it takes place over a hundred years ago. The Philippine-American war has been pretty much ignored, by textbook authors as well as moviemakers (but for the 1937 Hollywood movie The Real Glory). A...

    REVIEW | Anne Hathaway's Fake Accent Isn't the Only Thing Wrong With "One Day"

    Anne Hathaway's faux British accent might be the first obvious conceit in "One Day," but not its most cumbersome. That distinction belongs to the eponymous structure, a claustrophobic device that follows a pair of best friends over the course of a 22-year period, but only on many versions of July 15...

    REVIEW | Why "Amigo" is a Blueprint for the Work of John Sayles

    From the structure of his screenplays to the fluidity of his working-class themes, the cinema of John Sayles is always clean. Unfortunately, that assessment doesn't always apply to the quality of his work. Over some 30 years as writer-director-editor, his insistence on creative autonomy on most proj...
