For the Love of Film...

Welcome to my review website. I love movies, and here’s the place I talk about them. You’ll find my ratings, on a scale of zero to five stars, in all of my posts. For each film, I’ve written either a full critique, which is a longer piece; a compact review, which is usually just a paragraph; or a quick take, which is only a sentence or two. I also post articles about the world of cinema on my film blog.

In the Comments section on each page, feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings about the films discussed here.

Lights! Camera! Action!

Black or White

Black or White

Starring Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer, this film features an engaging, occasionally humorous script by writer-director Mike Binder. When the protagonist’s wife dies in a car accident, he is left on his own to raise his granddaughter, who is the child of his now-deceased white daughter and a black man. With an even-handed screenplay, good performances, and solid direction, the film deftly explores the issues of race in an interesting and entertaining way. Paula Newsome is particularly winning as a family-law judge.
