Review: Falling for the “Anatomy of a Fall”

As awards season kicks off, there’s one movie I’m hoping gets its flowers. “Anatomy of a Fall,” directed by Justine Triet, is a nuanced tale of morality, victimhood and human connection, all wrapped up in a courtroom drama.  The film follows Sandra (Sandra Hüller) as she’s put on trial following her husband’s death from a mysterious fall. Their blind son Daniel, (Milo Machado Graner), is a key witness in the case who fights between loyalty to his mother and his duty as a witness. The dichotomy between the courtroom and home scenes are brilliant. We see the motherly, vulnerable side of Sandra alongside her colder, more serious side. Her chemistry with her lawyer and friend Vincent (Swann Arlaud) is electric. Anytime the two share a scene, the affection they have for one another is palpable.

REVIEW: “SAW X” – a mind-bending journey

  This entry to the controversial “Saw” series, ironically, breathes new life into the franchise.  The movie follows the notorious serial killer, John “Jigsaw ‘’ Kramer (Tobin Bell), to Mexico for a new cancer treatment.  The film has a perfect combination of fanfare and casual viewer content. It keeps the most fun aspects of the series: the wild editing, the quick cuts and gut wrenching sounds that combine for a visceral reaction that puts you in the shoes of Jigsaw’s victims.
