Vanya On 42nd Street Review


Excellent
Someone had an idea: take an 1860s play by classic Russian writer Anton Chekhov, and get director Louis Malle, screenwriter David Mamet, and actors Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn, together to make a feature film of it.

The only thing more puzzling than this scenario is the fact that this movie, Vanya on 42nd Street, is a fabulous film. "Uncle Vanya" is the play in question, a tragicomic tale of family members plagued by broken hearts, lost youth, and missed opportunities.

My Dinner With André Review


Essential
I try to catch My Dinner With André at least once, maybe twice a year. It's one of those wonderful films which seems to change every time I see it, but, of course, the movie doesn't change at all. It's the viewer who has changed, getting out of the film what he decides to put in.

André follows a dinner conversation between two old friends: André Gregory, theater director and world -wandering philosopher, on the one hand, and playwright and actor Wally Shawn on the other. They haven't seen each other in several years.

Goodbye Lover Review


Good
Patricia Arquette plays a Sound of Music-obsessed, Martha Stewart wannabe, psychotic killer in this slightly clever but ultimately not-clever-enough comedy/film noir. While Arquette is delish, the story ultimately lacks much compelling material that isn't lifted from Double Indemnity or one of its contemporaries. Okay for a Sunday night, but hardly great filmmaking, especially from Roland Joffé, who's done better.
