Life Above All

In this drama, the impact of AIDS is rarely stated, but often heard.


Phil Bacharach
AIDS is rarely mentioned in “Life, Above All.” It’s referred to obliquely — a “bug,” “the other thing” — but its grim presence is always felt. When a character finally does call it by name, late in the movie, the effect is startling.

‘Hugo’ is Martin Scorsese’s love letter to the cinema.


Phil Bacharach
Martin Scorsese loves movies. Anyone familiar with the director of “Raging Bull” and “The Departed” knows he worships at the altar of film. It’s not surprising, therefore, that Scorsese would make a love letter to the art form in which he immersed himself from his days as a sickly child growing up on New York’s mean streets.

Another Earth

This intriguing sci-fi drama goes slightly out of orbit.


Phil Bacharach
You’ve got to admire the DIY ethic of “Another Earth.” Raw and grainy, it is steadfastly committed to its own smarts and vision — even if it ultimately falls short of its ambitions.

Phil Bacharach

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Thrills are muted but chilling in the espionage tale of ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.’


Phil Bacharach
For a guy named Smiley, the central character of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” doesn’t do a lot of smiling.
