Movies I reviewed for the Herald this week:
Two Lovers. “Fierce concentration on a tiny piece of emotional turf.”
Gomorrah. “No warm-hearted godfathers blathering on about the proper amount of garlic in the marinara sauce.”
Ben X. “You might wonder whether anybody’s in charge at this school.”
Ballerina. “But what a surface.”
Also, an interview I did with actress-auteur Julia Sweeney is included this week on ArtZone in Studio; watch here for the story of Sweeney’s new film Letting Go of God, a one-woman show that manages to be completely bright, disarming, and convincing about what its title says.
