If you tossed the eccentric imaginations of David Lynch, Charlie Kaufman and Franz Kafka into a boiling pot of water, something like “The Lobster” would emerge. It’s a murky soup of commentary and ideas about modern love and loneliness presented in...

If you have any sense or sensibility, you’ll rush to see “Love & Friendship,” the best – and funniest – Jane Austen adaptation in years. Ironic since its source, “Lady Susan,” is considered one of the author’s lesser works. Heck, the novella – begun...

You’d almost expect a movie about catalytic converters to be exhausting, but “The Nice Guys” is so over-the-top nuts it leaves you fully spent. For this, we have the EPA (excellent partner amalgamators) to thank for having the foresight to blend...

The closest writer-director Whit Stillman has come to making a period movie is his 1998 film “The Last Days of Disco,” which was set in early-1980s Manhattan. With “Love & Friendship,” he delivers a real frock flick of a film, using the posthumously...
