Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story

Portrait of unsung guitar god lets you doc out with your rock out

By Devin D. O’Leary
Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story provides an enlightening crash-course in the glitter-and-guitar-heavy glam rock era while simultaneously singing the praises of one of the music industry’s most talented hidden figures.

Shot Caller

Film Review

Shot Caller

Prison drama succeeds in making life behind bars look bad—which isn’t much of a challenge, really

By Devin D. O’Leary
Despite some committed acting and some gloomy cinematography, Shot Caller is far too melodramatic and drags its twisty story out far too long to have the solid, gut-punch impact it so desperately wants.

Frybread Power

Brigsby Bear

Film Review

Brigsby Bear

Oddball indie comedy looks at the dangers of nostalgia and the joys of fandom

By Devin D. O’Leary
Brigsby Bear is a bit too self-conscious of the dorkiness of its main character and of the hipster profundity in his Quixote-esque quest, but the overall intent is sincere and openhearted enough to overcome the script familiarities and character tropes.

Lady Macbeth

Film Review

Lady Macbeth

Impolite BBC drama is bad romance at its best

By Devin D. O’Leary
Far too stark to call Gothic, way too bleak to call romantic, Lady Macbeth is a violent heartbreaker for those who prefer broken hearts to happy endings.

A  Ghost Story

Film Review

A Ghost Story

Minimalist tale of life and death may be saying something, but it’s keeping awfully quiet

By Devin D. O’Leary
A Ghost Story is self-consciously arty and aggressively dull. If you cut out the scenes in which nothing moves, nothing happens and no one speaks, the entire film would be about 10 minutes long.

Dunkirk

Film Review

Dunkirk

Christopher Nolan goes to war in a heart-pounding, historical drama about victory in the jaws of defeat

By Devin D. O’Leary
Dunkirk expresses the panic, fear and sheer chaos of war better than just about any previous film.

The Little Hours

Film Review

The Little Hours

Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci are naughty nuns in oddball literary adaptation

By Devin D. O’Leary
The Little Hours is a send-up of the absurd idea of sin and that human beings can actually give up their sins of the flesh, but Jeff Baena’s attentions are focused on the fact that cursing, drunken, fornicating nuns are funny as hell.

Baby Driver

Film Review

Baby Driver

Edgar Wright takes an eclectic cast on a high-speed joyride with the stereo cranked to 11

By Devin D. O’Leary
Baby Driver isn’t all testosterone-fueled explosions and physics-defying stunts. It’s a gritty, guns-and-bullets character study done with panache, skill and a slice of humor.
