Disney’s new version of “The Lion King” directed by Jon Favreau opens like the 1994 animated musical, setting the stage with an uplifting vocal of “Nants' Ingonyama” ... more
This one might seem like a low budget production as it opens, but there are no credits so you don’t know who’s in it at first or even what it’s called. This is a clever way of ... more
While we may not have been “psychedelized” as the Chambers Brothers suggested, the past can be tricky and so can the future. That’s why remembering ... more

Based on the novel, "Little Big Man" by Thomas Berger, the 1970 epic Western film of the same name directed by Arthur Penn was considered a rarity of the genre because of its … more
You have to give a lot of credit to director Greta Gerwig.
