"Anchorage" Q&A with Director Scott Monahan

  Due to the limitations of the 2020 film festivals and the gradual inclusion of in person screenings this year, many film festivals, including the San Diego International Film Festival, have adopted a hybrid screening format including both in-person and online screenings.      One of the films I caught online was Anchorage, the debut film by director Scott Monahan. The film follows two brothers, Jacob (Monahan) and John (Dakota Loesch), as they run a tru...

"The Humans" - REVIEW

  San Diego Film Festival Reviews: “The Humans”, United States, 2021, directed by Stephen Karam.   The second gala screening on Sunday was of “The Humans”, the film adaptation of the four time Tony award winning play also written and directed by Stephen Karam.   The film follows the Blake family’s Thanksgiving get-together as they navigate a series of bleak revelations and try to refrain from ripping each other apart, as most families do during...

Film is Life, Art is Hope - 'Belfast' (Film Review)

Kenneth Branagh’s name will likely be a mainstay during this year’s awards season with his absolute masterpiece of a film, ‘Belfast.’ Inspired by his childhood experiences, ‘Belfast’ follows a young boy and his family's crossroads between leaving their home town or staying to endure violence and religiously driven civil warfare.    The themes of the film are heavy, but the true essence of the film is innocence and hopefulness. It is masterly ...

From Film to Food - a Culinary Screening Event at San Diego Fest

My Sunday opened with about as pleasant a greeting as it gets, with a glass of champagne and a good documentary. The film followed a renowned chef in Juan Mari Arzak as he passed the torch down to his daughter, Elena Arzak and their collective journey towards legendary chef status. For a food documentary, it was less focused on the dishes themselves, and more on the creators behind the dish. Juan has spent decades solidifying himself as one of the world's premiere chefs, accumulating mult...

"The Power of the Dog" - REVIEW

“The Lost Daughter” - REVIEW

“Don’t Watch This Film If You’re Expecting” - San Diego Film Festival Reviews: “The Lost Daughter”, United States, 2021, directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal.   Sunday night's third gala screening was none other than Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut The Lost Daughter, set to hit audiences on Netflix December 31st.   The film stars Olivia Colman as Leda, a middle-age professor trying to catch some sun on the coast of Greece over Summe...

“C’mon C’mon” - REVIEW

“The Light At The End Of The 2020 Tunnel” - San Diego Film Festival Reviews: “C’mon C’mon”, United States, 2021, directed by Mike Mills.   After more than a year and a half of empty movie theaters and virtual screenings, cinema is officially back in San Diego. What better way to open up the 20th anniversary of the San Diego Film Festival, than a screening of Mike Mills’ heart-felt feature C’mon C’mon.    The film stars Jo...

The Battle of the Kirstens Scored by Jonny Greenwood (Film Comparison of “Power of the Dog” vs “Spencer”)

Friday closed with a bang. Two powerhouse, sure to be Oscar contenders, screened back to back to sold out crowds. Jonny Greenwood scored both films in what is sure to clinch him multiple Oscar nominations. Kirsten Dunst and Kirsten Stewart went head to head as two leaders in the best actress race this year. So, I feel it is appropriate to compare the two films.   Power of the Dog is a tension filled, slow moving story about toxic masculinity set in an early 1900s Cowboy dominated re...

"The French Dispatch" - REVIEW

I opened my weekend with a bold and experimental visual experience provided by none other than Wes Anderson. "The French Dispatch" may have been met with inconsistent critical reviews during itss festival run, but don't let that fool you. The film is a 1 hour and 48 minute indulgence of everything we've come to love about Wes Anderson's cinematic style. From shifting color grades that go from color to black and white at the flick of a switch, to the classic Wes Anderson a...
