BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 10/16/2020

Liam Neeson looks a little roughed up sitting in his car with a cellphone in his hand in the movie Honest ThiefHONEST THIEF

“HONEST THIEF hits (pun) close to home, being set in Boston, but clearly the makers never saw Seth Meyer’s late-night parody Boston Accent, a spoof about movies that feature, more than anything else, someone with a Boston brogue.” – Randy Steinberg, Blast Magazine

 

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II leans over to talk to Mark Rylance in the movie The Trial of the Chicago 7THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7

“Though the film is sometimes stiffly directed, riding roughshod over tone and pace, and occasionally losing its narrative thread, it is a linguistic tour de force propelled by Sorkin’s gift of gab and a dazzling cast…” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

 

BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP: 10/08/2020

BLACK BOX

“BLACK BOX is like a prolonged BLACK MIRROR episode that stretches itself far too thin in terms of ideas and execution, despite having a few moments of intrigue amongst the dullness.” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture

 

Danielle Deadwyler and Ezra Hasalam sit together in the movie The Devil to PayTHE DEVIL TO PAY

“THE DEVIL TO PAY is a rare gem of a genre movie, one that terrifies you without relying on shocking jump scares or gruesome special effects.” – John Black, Gruesome Magazine

 

THE LIE

“It offers a story of cliches and cartoonish plot developments that may have you howling in your seat.” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture

 

 

Elle Fanning and Timothée Chalamet sit together in the movie A Rainy Day in New YorkA RAINY DAY IN NEW YORK

“The opportunity for something fresh to come of 21st-century lovers cavorting through classic Manhattan never materializes, and these characters sit claustrophobically in a time warp of Woody’s stunted making.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices
