aving a week hiatus gives us double the amount of cinema to dive into the following week. So here we are with five, count ’em 5, theatrical reviews. We kick it off with a likely Oscar contender in Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight
– or as we put it, what will be the dominating force at this year’s Indie Spirit Awards. Marvel kicked off it’s newest franchise potential with Benedict (x2) in Doctor Strange
. Kelly Reichardt is back with another slice-of-life picture in Certain Women
. The film has has heart and some stellar performances, though may be a bit unsatisfying for many. Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe are let off their leashes Dog Eat Dog
and Kurt announces the female performance to beat this year from Rebecca Hall in Christine
– no, it’s not a remake about a killer car. We also briefly touch on Rachel Weisz and Timothy spall in Denial
. The Watch List includes a mini Michael Mann Marathon (MMMM), a revisit to unconventional Peter Weir, a comedy special and a few horror titles to cap off October with. While the summer was legit the worst movie-going season of our lives, this fall is shaping up to be one of the best. So hold on to your hats, the Cinecast is just getting warmed up!
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
