In a world where “brighter is better” and brightness is determined by a cranked-up b...

‘Tom and Jerry’ Review: Honestly, There’s No Need for a Catchy Headline Because This Movie is Just Terrible

I spent a large chunk of the experience of watching Tom & Jerry thinking about the late Bob Hoskins. As I watched talented actors struggle their way through a creaky script that could have just as easily been unearthed from a time capsule of the 1990s, or the 1970s, or the 1950s, and spruced up a bit, I thought about how difficult it truly must have been for Hoskins to not only “interact” with animated characters in Who Framed Roger Rabbit , but how few actors since have effectively follo...

How Kingsley Ben-Adir’s Performance in ‘One Night in Miami’ Transforms a Historical Icon Into Flesh-and-Blood

Regina King’s One Night In Miami has a fascinating approach to iconography. It anachronistically re-stages Muhammad Ali’s  famous underwater photo by Flip Schulke three years after it actually happened, in order to move the photography session to the day of his historic fight with Sonny Liston. This is the day the film takes place, unfolding largely in real time in and around a single hotel room after the bout. The film, by creating a proximity between the photo and Ali’s poolside stra...
