    Priest

    ★★½

    Here comes Paul Bettany again! This time he is a Priest empowered with ninja-type warrior skills to combat vampires who are threatening the extinction of mankind. It's like a syfy-horror with Western-cowboy elements all rolled into one wild ride. The Priests are the only individuals capable of killing the vampires in spectacular fashion, because of their ninja fighting skills. Good Halloween movie.

  • Orlando

    Orlando

    ★★★★½

    Gender reversal, and immortality themes, darkly humorous. Tilda Swinton is an English nobleman ordered by Queen Elizabeth I, (played by legendary Quentin Crisp), never to fade, lose his beauty and grow old. We see Orlando living through centuries and transforming into a woman. In the 21st century, she finally accepts her true self. Beautiful photography and wardrobe. Glad this film introduced me to Jimmy Somerville who sings the haunting title track like an "angel", also the beautiful "Eliza".

    ★★★★½

    This movie has been described as a French "Shakespeare in Love", which is understandable considering the similarities, both brilliant writers, both fall in love, and both movies appear to be fictionalized accounts of a period in the life of the artists. However, I find the movie Moliere, more nuanced and textured as the story evolves. You don't need to be familiar with Moliere's works to enjoy the smart dialogue and entertaining list of characters. The comedic elements are priceless. Moliere…

    Nobody Knows I'm Here

    ★★★★

    From Chile. Another quiet film about finding and claiming your own voice (literally). Not a whole lot of dialogue in this film, the scenery, story, and the main character, Memo, are the driving force of this movie.
