    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★½

    THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH is the best looking 2021 film that I have seen. It's simply gorgeous. The absolutely wonderful cinematography, framing and production design had my eyes almost weeping at how beautiful this was to look at. Add in some amazing performances from Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand and you have something that is worthy of your time.

Those that don’t want to be tied down in one place. Frances McDormand is absolutely spellbinding as the lead…

    ★★★★½

    THE FATHER stars Sir Anthony Hopkins as a man that is suffering from dementia and I honestly can say that this film made me feel like I was suffering along with him. The script is impeccable. The production design is extraordinary, especially as little changes are made throughout the film. The acting is phenomenal. I think an Oscar nom for Hopkins is a sure bet and wouldn’t be surprised even a little bit if he took the prize home. Olivia…
