Another Year

Strong acting and little story transform Mike Leigh’s film into a poignant slice of life.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Nothing much happens in Mike Leigh films, at least not in the strictest sense of Plot Mechanics 101. There are no car chases or explosions, not even a juicy epiphany in the final reel.

Rio

Utterly forgettable


Youth

Phil Bacharach
From the conveyer belt of Fox Animation, “Rio” comes equipped with a predictable story, perfunctory characters and presentable visuals.
