Coming Soon: Spaghetti Junction (2022) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth 3 days ago on Entertainment

 Connections are an integral part of being human.  As we traverse the byways of family, friendship, love, and loss, our memories and those whom we choose to surround ourselves with become both armor and weapon against the dangers that time will inevitably bring to our thresholds.  Kirby McClure's debut feature film, Spaghetti Junction is a neo-gothic fable that deftly blends feverish imagery with heartbreaking truths to present an unforgettable story in the heart of the American South. Featuring a talented ensemble, crisp imagery, and an ambiguous exploration of bereavement, this is one of the first genuine surprises of the year.  August, a young girl recently disabled in a tragic accident, is navigating a family that is dying and a new life she never asked for.  After a cosmic encounter, she begins a journey with a mysterious stranger, hoping to find answers and a sense of peace while even stranger forces conspire against her and her newfound companion.  McClure's script draws inspiration from seminal works in the surreal familial genre. Comparison's to Malick are unavoidable, but the fantastical elements immediately conjure memories of Pan's Labyrinth mixed with Beasts of the Southern Wild.  McClure has created a pantheon of enigmatic presences both real and possibly symbolic that represent the battle that rages within all of us in the wake of the unthinkable.  The result is a handful of powerful, organic performances.    Cate Hughes anchors the proceedings as August. Her pain and frustration are palpable, especially when contrasted with Eleanore Miechkowski's rebellious sister Shiny.  Both girl's approaches to dealing with loss are at odds in the microcosm of their family, made real by Cameron McHarg's kinetic turn as the girls' alcoholic father.  He is the somber bull in a China shop, both crippled with grief and furious with loss, and his approach to his daughters' various predicaments is instantly relatable.  Rounding out the cast is Tyler Rainey as The Being (The Traveler).  His pitch perfect delivery builds upon his natural chemistry with Hughes to invoke shades of Bowie and yet, despite the various influences, McClure continually ensures this is its own animal.  Kristian Zuniga's evocative cinematography presents the modern South as a husk, a dead, or near dead thing struggling to maintain an identity and this is given form with wide shots of lonely, long abandoned shopping complexes and still flourishing forests, kept secret from the world beyond.  This is a story of dualities and conflict, particularly with the crisis of faith that has formed in August's center, leading to a metaphysical confrontation and a smile inducing conclusion that allows for individual interpretation.    Now playing on the festival circuit and hopefully coming soon to digital streaming, Spaghetti Junction is a piece of human emotion that never shies away from darkness and danger.  Violence, blood, and strange, unknowable gods are at play in McClure's modern Garden of Gethsemane, and to know them is to know thyself.  Ultimately this is a story about picking up the pieces and moving on while understanding some pieces will forever be lost to the void.  It is what we do with what we have left that is of import and August's crucible will inspire long after the credits have rolled.  --Kyle Jonathan 

Every Suspect Fits A Pattern: The Outfit (2022) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth 4 days ago on Entertainment

1920's Chicago had seedy crime syndicates galore — none more notorious than “the Outfit.”  Led by Al Capone and his colleague Johnny Torrio, this Italian-American gang of mobsters ran rampant all over the Windy City during Prohibition and made a lasting impression.  While the Outfit was never a monopoly, they were considered the largest, most violent, and most powerful criminal organization in not only Chicago, but the entire Midwest in general.  This fact ties into Graham Moore’s crime drama The Outfit, an aptly titled film whose moniker has a dual meaning — intended equally to suggest the aforementioned gang as it is a reference to the main character’s profession in this film, who is a tailor (or “cutter,” as he insists on being called).Leonard (Mark Rylance) is a British gentleman in his golden years who moved to Chicago for a change of scenery, with a new clientele who would appreciate his meticulously handmade suits.  He and his lovely assistant Mable (Zoey Deutch) are making steady business…but his clientele aren’t exactly the most respectable chaps.  The audience soon learns that his storefront is a sanctuary for a family of ruthless mobsters who make him good money, but also put him in the middle of some compromising situations.  One night, while he’s working late at his shop, Leonard’s predicament escalates when two of these mobsters come banging on his door, one of which is shot.  Not only is he bullied into sewing the wound shut with needle and thread unintended for such purposes, but he also becomes privy to a tape with some dirt on it that the FBI is jonesing for and could imprison the mobsters thanks to a “rat” in their circle.  Will Leonard be able to navigate himself out alive from this harrowing night?  And at what cost?The Outfit is a small, carefully crafted film that has the spirit of a stage play.  The dialogue — particularly Leonard’s — has a poetry about it that commands attention, and the story is so singularly focused with the sole set of his shop that it would lend itself well to that medium.  Each actor from the small cast is undeniably charismatic, and every action has laser focus that ends up mattering immensely in the long run.  It’s easy to get lost in the world Moore paints here — thick with British charm, balanced out by crude 1920's gangster talk.  No matter how simplistic Leonard seems in his motivations and character, Mark Rylance’s brilliant performance brings him nuance and makes the audience crave more.  There’s an essence about the film that commands attention, and the viewer will be more than likely to oblige.Another aspect of The Outfit that shines is the level of suspense that it’s able to sustain until the very end.  While some plot twists might prove predictable for seasoned audiences, there’s a constant tension about the film once the protagonist is thrown into the thick of it that is palpable.  Plot twist upon plot twist make this presumably simple film on the surface transcend the visage of the “standard crime drama,” morphing it into something far more compelling and gritty by the end.  While there’s notable tension throughout the film once the plot escalates, there’s a slight sense that the film could have told the same tale more tightly by trimming 15 minutes off both ends.  Otherwise, it’s a solid, entertaining experience for any fan of the genre.The dichotomy between “old world” England and “new world” Chicago makes The Outfit a must-watch.  It’s a bold yet classy exercise in powerful storytelling and effective character portrayals.  Don’t miss a chance to see it, and get ready to play a fun guessing game when you do.-Andrea Riley (function() { var zergnet = document.createElement('script'); zergnet.type = 'text/javascript'; zergnet.async = true; zergnet.src = (document.location.protocol == "https:" ?

Posted By themoviesleuth 4 days ago on Entertainment

 Matt Reeves iteration of The Batman has officially crossed the half billion mark at the global box office. After a mere two weeks in release, the DC movie has met a major marker with its latest take on the Gotham Knight. The film which halted production numerous times due to the global pandemic is turning out to be a major financial and critical hit for Warner Bros. and their brand. While many weren't sure that Robert Pattinson would pull off the role, the movie seems to be putting many doubts to bed as sequel talk is already ramping up. The Batman had the biggest DC opening since 2016's Suicide Squad bringing in $134 million in its first weekend and continues to climb every day. The film has officially grossed $505.8 million globally as of Wednesday. $253 million is in U.S. domestic ticket sales. The remainder is $247.5 million from box office abroad. Warner Bros. chairperson Toby Emmerich was thrilled with the financial success of the film:"We couldn't be more thrilled to see people all over the world enjoying The Batman in theaters. Matt Reeves has delivered an extraordinary film that manages to honor the legacy of this global cultural hero while taking moviegoers into an experience that feels fresh and original.
