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 […]

MARSHALL Movie Review

MARSHALL Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer An important look at the man who influenced and structured American civil rights laws. At a time when the National Football League (NFL) is embroiled in controversy over some players “taking a knee” during the playing of the National Anthem, along comes MARSHALL to remind us of […]

BLADE RUNNER 2049 Movie Review

BLADE RUNNER 2049 Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Impressive and dazzling and takes nothing away from the iconic original. Due to the horrific event in Las Vegas on Sunday evening, Warner Bros. canceled the press screening for BR 2049 on Monday. For the re-scheduled press screening on Tuesday, the representative read a letter from director Denis Villeneuve. He urged […]

AMERICAN MADE Movie Review

AMERICAN MADE Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer The march to judge Cruise’s career dead is premature. His charm and energy and willingness to look like hell elevates this movie. He’s terrific and its a lot of fun. Another drug mule movie? Well, when Tom Cruise is playing the “mule”, you can be assured that […]

MOTHER! Movie Review

MOTHER! Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer What sustains and nurtures creativity? Aronofsky understands the cruelty of genius. I have read two critics reviews of  MOTHER! with no attempt at interpreting what Aronofsky is saying. So, not to cheat my readers, here is my explanation of MOTHER! Writer-director Darren Aronofsky’s MOTHER! stars Jennifer Lawrence […]
