Interview: Director Chris Overton discusses Academy-Award nominated The Silent Child

By Josh Morris The Silent Child is a short film that explores isolation and acceptance. At its center is four-year-old Libby (played by the remarkable Maisie Sly), a deaf girl whose mother, Sue (Rachel Fielding), is debating whether Sign Language or reading lips is the best choice for her to function in society. In an […]

THE COMMUTER Review

THE COMMUTER Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Too implausible, too convoluted to be a serious thriller but Neeson is all in and director Collet-Serra has obvious talent. But who can dope out the plot? When I lived in Westchester County and didn’t want to fight traffic and then squander my monthly voodoo points on […]

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD Review

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Atmospheric thriller from the great Ridley Scott and the perfect Getty – Christopher Plummer. Its his movie. He dominates it. J. Paul Getty doesn’t even make the Top Ten richest people in history. That honorific goes to Mansa Musa (1280-1337). Musa was the King of Timbuktu.(1) He built his empire […]

I, TONYA Movie Review

I, TONYA Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic A stunning performance by Robbie that should gain her a Best Actress nomination. Who could beat Janney’s fearless, cruel performance in the Best Supporting category? Midori Ito was the first woman to complete the triple Axel in 1988. In women’s figure skating competitions, it’s the triple-triple combo, introduced more than […]

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Review

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Enthralling and unforgettable. Yet, reenforces society’s belief that the penis is ugly. Could physically gifted Armie Hammer has an ugly penis? I am reading The Origins and Role of Same-Sex Relations in Human Societies by James Neill. One-quarter way through this remarkable work, I can only do it grave injustice […]

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Review

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic They ticked off all the boxes except the one marked “Jar Jar Binks.” You are very old if you needed to see all these characters again. Who is The One? I tired of looking for him (or her). Show yourself already! Are Hebrews still looking for The Messiah? Are you […]

PHANTOM THREAD Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Reminds me of Pablo Picasso. Brilliant in its savvy cruelty. Day-Lewis delves deeply into his character’s psyche. Best Actor of 2017! This quote by Oscar Wilde seems appropriate to PHANTOM THREAD: “Never love anyone who treats you like you’re ordinary.” It is the 1950s and Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) is […]

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Review

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer What’s next? Bringing back Charlie Chan? MURDER lacks ugliness, spite and callousness. Branagh talks too much. I cannot compare THE MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS with the original 1974 film of Agatha Christie’s famous book. Do we really need a Hercule Poirot franchise starring Kenneth Branagh? I […]

THOR: RAGNAROK Review

THOR: RAGNAROK Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Cate Blanchett is Marvel’s new goddess and deserves her own franchise. This is the best of the Avengers and Hemsworth’s charisma shines throughout, after all, he is the God of Thunder. If you are sick of superheroes saving the Earth and mankind over and over again, THOR: […]

THE  KILLING OF THE SACRED DEER Review

THE KILLING OF THE SACRED DEER Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Brilliant, unusual thriller by a masterful director. There are two unwatchable scenes in Yorgos Lanthimos’ THE  KILLING OF THE SACRED DEER. The first one starts the movie off – up-close open heart surgery. Cincinnati cardiologist Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell) and anesthesiologist Matthew (Bill Camp) have finished surgery […]
