“THE SQUARE” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The dark comedy The Square delivers a message not unfamiliar considering today’s upheaval involving the brotherhood of man. In the Ruben Ostlund’s film, that takes place in Sweden, a statement is made to the meaning of  “The Square” an exhibit at a museum. It states simply “The Square is a sanctuary of trust and caring. Within its boundaries we all share equal rights and obligations.” So sets the tone for this bizarre look into society’s relationships with each other and the division of wealth that fuels the fire.

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Those interested in the sexual revolution of males in the 1970’s, may want to check out the biographical film Tom of Finland. The famous graphic artist used his drawings to express his feelings for men and their enactment of physical contact. It may be a dark horse for awards consideration and “pushes the envelope” with its gay sexual edge. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Sometimes it’s very hard to get it right, especially if you are filming under excruciating circumstances. That seems to be the fate of The Mountain Between Us a survival film that depends on getting the right shot and mood in order to create a chemistry between two opposites. The movie starts with a trite beginning, takes on a difficult situation and then tries to bring a couple together in spite of the ordeal they have to overcome. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A powerful, captivating, thrilling, jaw dropper, the exciting film Good Time showcases a fine performance by Robert Pattinson and a creative script by Roland Bronstein and Josh Safdie. The crime story works its way into your head as Patterson’s protagonist finds himself caught up in a paradox created by wrong decisions. Decisions that will decide the fate of himself and his mentally challenged brother. It’s a hypnotic non-stop adrenaline rush from start to finish. Read more…

The coming of age movie 20th Century Women takes a look at life askew in the late 70’s for a single mother of a teenage boy.

Review by John Delia

Jessica Chastain gives brilliantly “wicked” performance in the film Miss Sloane as a lobbyist caught in the middle of a Senate Bill debate. She’s so good at projecting the persona of a strong woman that the ladies may even have cop an attitude following the show. Just kidding guys. Or maybe not. Right now she’s in my top picks for an Oscar. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Captivating and suspenseful the movie The Girl on the Train takes you into the mind of a witness to murder. The intriguing film hooks you from the beginning, tantalizes with possible suspects and then leads you down a path to a deadly finale. Taken from a bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins, the movie gets a Hollywood make over true to the book. Be forewarned the story gets a little contrived, but it doesn’t ruin the overall melodramatic experience. Read more…

Review by John Delia

This wild and wacky documentary on the life of author Laura Albert, Author: The JT LeRoy Story, gets complicated, showy, impudent and irreverent and that just the first half. But, that’s the beauty of this offbeat, nonsensical biography told by Laura Albert herself. Unless you travel in book writing circles, you may not know the celebrity of the writer who earned her fame using multiple impostors and through a stroke of luck. In fact, she’s even accused of a mental multiple personality disorder in her quest to pull off one of the biggest hoax’s in the literary business. Read more…
