    Quote from Danny (Kieran’s nephew)
    “Triangles are the strongest shape because any stress is evenly spread through all three sides.”

    This is the inclusivity tv show we (DNA)
    needed when we are nearing the end of a Pandemic. Trigonometry tackles the difficulties of growing and sustaining an interracial closed throuple. In addition, it has side stories of…

    I wrote this review on what would’ve been Joan Fontaine’s 103rd birthday.

    Anytime I want to introduce someone to a classic film from Hollywood’s Golden Age, I often start with this one. Of course, it depends on the individual. Some are curious about Greta Garbo, a name they’ve heard but a face they might not be familiar with. In that case, it’s either Grand Hotel for a peek of Garbo (plus the Barrymore brothers and Joan Crawford!) or Queen Christina for…

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    2001: A Space Odyssey. 1968. Directed by Stanley Kubrick.

    Some storytellers rely a great deal on dialogue. In 2001: A Space Odyssey (directed by Stanley Kubrick), Kubrick relied a great deal on imagery and music. The screenplay by Arthur C. Clarke is written so well that Kubrick had to create miniatures and sets that would, through attention to minuscule detail, tell the story. Kubrick’s cinematographers Geoffrey Unsworth and John Alcott made history as they guided us on an evolutionary presentation…

  • Collateral

    Collateral

    Collateral. 2004. Directed by Michael Mann.

    Michael Mann’s Collateral (2004) is a stylish fast-paced neo-noir set in Los Angeles. Mann carefully directed Tom Cruise (Vincent) and Jamie Foxx (Max). Max is a cab driver who picks up Vincent and gets pulled into the darkest corridors of L.A. Dion Beebe’s cinematography and James Newton Howard’s score carries the film in many ways and keeps one’s heart beating a few beats faster until the ending. Stuart Beattie’s screenplay was well written as…

    The Aviator

    The Aviator. 2004. Directed by Martin Scorsese.

    The Aviator was directed by Martin Scorsese and written by John Logan. As a biopic, The Aviator has a great story to tell and it does it with jazz. Despite the 2hr and 50 minute run time, it is entertaining from start to finish. Robert Richardson’s cinematography was breath taking with panoramic views from above in Hughe’s plane to the claustrophobic, dizzy viewing room. In fact, his cinematography lead to an Oscar. The…

    Rear Window

    Rear Window. 1954. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

    Rear Window (1954) directed by Alfred Hitchcock based on the screenplay by John MIchael Hayes and the short story “It Had to be Murder” by Cornell Woolrich. The true eyes of this rear window film is Robert Burks the director of photography. Burks utilized his camera to show us the many neighbors that James Stewart (L.B. Jeffries), Grace Kelly (Lisa Carol Fremont), and Thelma Ritter (Stella) are obsessed and paranoid about. Raymond Burr…
