Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb Review

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb Review

RATING: (4 STARS) Comedy doesn’t get much darker than Dr. Strangelove, which is Stanley Kubrick‘s grand “F— you” to the chaos that was the Cold War arms race.

Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead Review

RATING: (4 STARS) With one of the darkest plots of any movie I’ve seen this decade, “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” floors you from the first scene to the last. This is really intense and powerful stuff that is extremely well written, directed, and acted. Andy (Hoffman) and his brother Hank (Ethan Hawke) are […]
