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!

The Big Lebowski

The Big Lebowski

It’s rare that I laugh aloud at comedies, even those I find funny. In the case of The Big Lebowski, I actually laughed quite a bit. Offbeat and darkly funny, the film features Jeff Bridges in a great turn as a put-upon stoner, though he is the most normal of the characters in this bizarre caper flick. If you like the work of the Coen brothers (Barton FinkO Brother, Where Art Thou?No Country for Old Men), this is a must-see.
