Movies I’ve Recently Seen: King of Hearts, Little Women, The Front Page, & last but very much least, Quantum of Solace

Here are four movies that aren't playing in an upcoming film festival. No one asked me to review them. One is still in theaters. The others are currently available only in your own home. They're just movies I've recently seen, from best to worst. A King of Hearts (1966), Kanopy World War I gave us … Continue reading Movies I’ve Recently Seen: King of Hearts, Little Women, The Front Page, & last but very much least, Quantum of Solace

Movies I've Recently Seen: Killer's Kiss, Zero for Conduct, 1917, Blaze, & The Swimmer

I had a horrible, sickly January, pretty much keeping me in the house. It wasn't until this Monday that I felt I could go to a movie theater without ruining everyone else's fun with my coughing and sneezing. (That's why I didn't cover Noir City or IndieFest this year.)

Movies I’ve Recently Seen: Au Hasard Balthazar, Jojo Rabbit, Bob Le Flambeur, The Blue Kite, Ford v Ferrari

Here are five films I've scene since my last Recently Seen article. Not a bad one in the group. (Which isn't to say that they're all masterpieces.) A Au Hasard Balthazar¬†(1966), Criterion Channel Robert Bresson tells us plenty about human nature in this story of the life and death of a donkey. And no, it's … Continue reading Movies I’ve Recently Seen: Au Hasard Balthazar, Jojo Rabbit, Bob Le Flambeur, The Blue Kite, Ford v Ferrari

Movies I’ve Recently Seen: The Pirate, The King, Harriet, & The Curse of the Cat People

Since my last Recently Seen piece, I've revisited two films I hadn't seen in ages, along two new ones. (Of course, I've seen other movies over that time, but I either wrote about them elsewhere or didn't feel the need to write about them at all.) A- The Pirate (1948), Criterion Channel Cole Porter's songs … Continue reading Movies I’ve Recently Seen: The Pirate, The King, Harriet, & The Curse of the Cat People
