The Montclair Film Festival starts tomorrow
Chef-I have not seen this but good friends have and I trust their opinion enough to say see this movie. It also won the audience award at the festival
Beneath a Harvest Sky- Story of two friends during a summer vacation from school. Mondo really liked the film.
Starred Up- One of the best films at Tribeca is hands down one of the best films of 2014. The story of a young man in prison is a kick in the ass with an unexpectedly moving ending
Overnighters- I heard great things about this so I went to see as much of I could. Easily one of the best films at Tribeca.
What is Cinema?- Rambling look at what cinema is. It has great moments but falls down since unless you know what the clips used are you’ll have no idea what the points being made are.
Whitey- A look at the life of gangster Whitey Bolger told via his trial. A solid film from CNN films is a must see in the theater where there will be no bleeps
Venus in Furs- Roman Polanski adaption of the recent Broadway hit is a brilliant melding of theater and cinema. One of the best films of the year
bright days ahead- Solid portrait of a woman heading into retirement and finding direction in an affair with a younger man
men of the cloth- Fantastic portrait of three tailors in New York Pennsylvania and Italy. One of the best films at last year’s DOC NYC
Intramural- a god damn funny send up of every sports cliche and a must see.
