Amanda Earhart — Tell Me What You Want


Pop

Alyssa Grimley
Amanda Earhart’s sound is hard to categorize. Think today’s pop, but with fewer thump-thump club beats and synthesizers, traded for more undoctored vocals and guitar. Throw in a dash of country twang and a sprinkling of piano and violin, and that’s a start.

The Company You Keep

Old radicals don't learn new tricks.


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
Baby boomers can be their own worst enemy. The generation that was going to change the world instead settled on thinking the world of themselves. Youthful idealism, aging and compromised idealism, pining for that youthful idealism — nothing fuels anti-boomer sentiment like boomer sentimentality.

Love Is All You Need

When brokenhearted, middle-aged people assemble for a wedding in Italy, that’s amore.


Drama

Rod Lott
On paper — or computer screen — Love Is All You Need sounds like an overdose of saccharine. Even swallowing just a few plot keywords could trigger symptoms: “widower,” “wedding” and “breast cancer.”

Would You Rather

Why, yes, I would!


Horror

Rod Lott
That innocent exchange of tough questions becomes Saw: The Home Game in IFC Midnight’s release of Would You Rather. How I would love to have seen an audience react to this in a theater!
