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!

This gem of an independent film tells the story of Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis (née Dowley). Set in a rural community of Nova Scotia in the middle decades of the Twentieth Century, the story traces the meeting and marriage of Ms. Dowley to Everett Lewis, a local fish peddler. Despite birth defects and rheumatoid arthritis, and a life spent in poverty, Maud rose to national prominence as an artist.
