Still Alice – Review (Spoiler Free)

Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart excel in this loving and poignant portrait of Alzheimer’s… Playing equally well as both a depiction of tested familial bonds and as an investigation into language, humanity and identity, Still Alice is an emotional and intellectual success. Perhaps unsurprisingly the film’s strongest element is Julianne Moore given both her Academy Award win […]

Safe – Review (Spoiler Free)

Moore excels in this complex and chilling take on disease and the human condition… There are no easy answers in Safe. When Carol (Julianne Moore) begins to start experiencing violent allergic reactions to an unknown stimulus her doctor is both clueless and unsympathetic. He tells her she is making herself sick and passes her on […]

Chloe – Review (Spoiler Free)

This sexual thriller may lack tension at points, but it has a strong central cast in Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson, and Amanda Seyfried who all give good performances, it has an engaging script that explores desire in an interesting way, and has solid direction from Atom Egoyan. Moore plays a woman who suspects her husband […]

Boogie Nights – Review (Spoiler Free)

There is nudity, but it is sparse and is very clearly handled non-gratuitously, presenting sex as an industry and […]
