Movie Review – Heavenly Creatures

by William Eamon Workman If you are LGBT and also happen to have an interest in true crime then there couldn’t be a better movie for you than Heavenly Creatures.  This movie is based on the story of two young girls whose love for each other and contempt for everyone else becomes a deadly mix […]

BIG EYES Movie Review

BIG EYES Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Another Tim Burton fairy tale. Adams and Waltz miscast. The screenplay is shallow and has no depth. The ham-fisted acting doesn’t help. Wannabe artist Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) easily railroaded his shy wife Margaret (Amy Adams) into allowing him to take credit as the artist of her […]

Movie Review – Molly’s Girl

One thing you don’t find all that often is a good lesbian comedy.  The majority of lesbian movies I’ve found are serious dramas, but if you are looking to lighten the mood I suggest Molly’s Girl.  This is a fun, silly movie that still has enough emotional struggle in it to fulfill our need to […]

BOYHOOD Movie Review

BOYHOOD Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer If you support your family picking lettuce, your life is more interesting than this Linklater’s family. This is what happens when you commit to your stars when they are 5 years old and they grow up to be monosyllabic and lack cinematic charisma. The parade of hosannas […]

ENEMY Movie Review

ENEMY Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A wonderfully, powerful and challenging film with a great deal of psychological symbolism. If it’s a hallucination or alternate universe experience is up to you. Karl Marx once said, “Hegel remarked somewhere that all great, world-historical facts and personages occur, as it were, twice.  He forgot to […]

Movie Review – Home For The Holidays

by William Eamon Workman In the spirit of the season I found a Thanksgiving movie with a gay character hoping to impress you, the reader.  Instead, I think it’s more likely to depress you.  It’s the 1995 film, Home for the Holidays. The story follows Claudia Larson, played by Holly Hunter, as she fumbles through Thanksgiving with […]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT Movie Review

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer A stunning performance by Cotillard and a moral dilemma aptly presented. A few years ago I read – but could not find by hunting on Google – a news article about a town in France where employees were asked to vote on a proposed plan: (1) all […]

THE IMITATION GAME Movie Review

THE IMITATION GAME Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Hollywood biopics infantilizes its audiences. If someone’s true story ended badly, it’s the text epilogue that tells us what happened. When Hollywood does another biopic of Jesus’s life they will leave out the crucifixion. We can’t handle seeing the truth about people’s lives, especially if their lives […]

FOXCATCHER Movie Review

FOXCATCHER Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Carell is mesmerizing but nominations should also go to Tatum for an equally vanity-free performance. The acting succeeds while the story lacks a more in-depth study of a very complex relationship. There’s no spoiler here: magnificently wealthy – the best kind clearly is inherited wealth – John […]

AMERICAN SNIPER Movie Review

AMERICAN SNIPER Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer AMERICAN SNIPER would be a peerless film if director Clint Eastwood kept to Kyle’s fascinating military career in Iraq and left out the annoying, under-written personal story – and the glaring fake babies. How about that fake breastfeeding scene? The History Channel’s “One Mile Sniper Kill Shot” […]
