Review: Pawn Sacrifice

It’s best appreciated as a tragicomic profile of a man whose extraordinary talent was undermined by the political reality in which he was enmeshed.

Review: Labor Day

A better film would have had the gumption to maintain the poetic bleakness, rather than steer toward what ultimately feels like safe compromise.

Review: Brothers

Jim Sheridan has a gift for capturing glimpses of unvarnished, authentic emotion, and his humanism runs so deep that it’s capable of elevating even standard-issue fare like Brothers.
