The Monk

I vow that it’s a gem.


Thriller

Rod Lott
For several years, I’ve intended to read Matthew G. Lewis' 1796 novel, The Monk. I even bought a snazzy trade-paperback edition with an introduction from Stephen King. Never got around to cracking it open.

Drinking Games / From the Head

No budget? No problem!


Drama

Rod Lott

For no-budget cinema, the single location is a godsend. Set a movie entirely or mostly in one spot — one room, even — and you jussssst might be able to afford to put your thinly veiled autobiographical story onto film (OK, technically video). Such is the case for two new indie offerings: Drinking Games and From the Head.

Dallas Buyers Club

Matthew McConaughy and Jared Leto turn in award-worthy performances in this HIV/AIDS drama.


Drama

Aimee Williams

Ron Woodroof’s story has not been as extensively acknowledged as documented celebrity cases of HIV/ AIDS (e.g. Anthony Perkins, Magic Johnson, Freddie Mercury) and, until now, has remained in the mainstream media’s peripheral.

Belle

Belle is a rarity in the summer movie season — it's smart.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Belle is set in the 18th century, but its themes of race and class feel thoroughly contemporary. Don’t be fooled by the prevalence of bodices and powdered wigs. Like the best costume dramas, Belle has resonance for modern-day audiences, especially in a nation with a rapidly growing biracial population and an ever-widening gulf between the very rich and everyone else.
