This Week In Trailers: The Infamous Future, Museum Town, Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer, ‘Til Kingdom Come, Crack: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we try to figure out how Isreal and Kentucky are related to the apocalypse, educate and motivate those who need it the most, get ar...

Pantone's Colors of the Year are intended to reflect 'resilience and hope' for 2021. But the annual decision also has a trickle-down effect on everything from high fashion to iPhones.

'Let Them All Talk' takes a breezy boat trip with Meryl Streep and company

"Let Them All Talk" is as breezy as an ocean cruise (pre-Covid), and mostly a welcome excuse to enjoy its three septuagenarian leads -- Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen and Dianne Wiest -- as they banter their way across the Atlantic. Yet director Steven Soderbergh also offers some surprises, steering this polished little film in unexpected directions.

‘Let Them All Talk’ Review: Steven Soderbergh Takes You on a Leisurely Cruise in This Curious Dramedy

Can you even imagine going on a cruise again? I’m sure some people are perfectly fine with the idea – heck, some people would be willing to go right now, this very second, if they could. But here in the age of the coronavirus, cruises seem like floating Petri dishes; isolated barges with no escape. Which makes Steven Soderbergh‘s curious Let Them All Talk already feel weirdly dated. It’s set in a world where people gather freely, maskless, throwing their cares to the wind. They board a huge shi...

Let Them All Talk review – haughty Meryl Streep is queen of the high seas

Tensions arise between a writer and her coterie aboard an ocean liner in Steven Soderbergh’s sweet, unfocused dramaThere’s an awful lot going on in this new movie from Steven Soderbergh. The title is appropriate: it’s garrulous, elegant, bristling with classy performances from an A-list cast, and Deborah Eisenberg’s screenplay has a theatrical intimacy. It’s loosely and waywardly plotted, perhaps as a result of having gone through many drafts, though maybe not enough. It is slightly unfocused an...
