I walked away from Daniels' film deeply moved. As obvious as this film can be in its messages -- bigotry and racism: bad -- it still touches on moments of history from the recent past that need to be recalled, over and over.
There's been a lot of action at the movies this summer, very little of it memorable. So Baltasar Kormakur's 2 Guns comes as a welcome surprise: a film with the wit, tension and sheer headlong pace to grab and hold your attention for a brisk 106 minutes.
Bachelorette is a solid and engaging character study wrapped up in vulgarity. The raunch feels organic and the film never reaches for a 'water-cooler moment' at the expense of its characters and its story.
A caper film whose biggest thief is actually the inexorable flow of time, Robot & Frank is a terrific character study that offers the always-captivating Frank Langella the opportunity to stretch out a little bit.
After all of the cocaine has been snorted and dance parties have subsided, at the end of Bachelorette, I wasn't sure whether I really loved every character, or really, really hated every character. I believe, in some cases (and especially here), that's a good thing.
