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!

City Island

City Island

The actors in this suburban comedy all shine, breathing Bronx life into their characters. A story of a stagnating family descending into unhappy lives, the film delivers smiles aplenty as it weaves its contrived but appealing plotlines. Sharply written, well-directed, and acted perfectly. A rare comedy that’s actually funny.
