There's a wrenching moment in the teen romance "Words on Bathroom Walls" in which a character draws a stark, shameful contrast between how society treats a child with cancer and one with a mental disorder like schizophrenia. Why, he asks, do we allow the former to "make a wish," while "wishi…

This is not actor James D'Arcy's first encounter with writing and directing a film. He had that experience a few years ago with an oddball comic short titled "Chicken/Egg," which starred Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, then in his sixth season as Jamie Lannister on "Game of Thrones" (the short is cur…

When the subject of novels by C.S. Forester pops up at cocktail parties, film adaptations of them that immediately come to mind are "The African Queen" (script by James Agee and John Huston) and "Sink the Bismark!" (script by Edmund H. North). I wasn't familiar with Forester's 1955 book "The…

Jon Stewart, bless his liberal heart, certainly means well with his initiative to reform the body politic through the ironically titled "Irresistible." But the message is likely to fall upon deaf ears and sleepy eyes. I don't want to label as folly his tale of a former Hillary Clinton operat…

I've struggled to become a fan of "SNL" breakout Pete Davidson. He's peculiar and his humor is equally bizarre. But in the autumn of 2018 he earned my respect by owning up to insensitively mocking Texas Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw, a decorated war hero who lost an eye in combat. In a fine…

"I'm not one for the dramatic." So says Elisabeth Moss in her Bette Davis-lite portrayal of author Shirley Jackson in the starkly titled "Shirley." That statement is ironic since most of Josephine Decker's follow-up to 2018's "Madeline's Madeline" is a succession of actorly hysterics in serv…

HBO Max, AT&T's bet-the-farm streaming service, is about to take on Netflix, Disney+ and Hulu. It has a lot going for it: a deep content vault and the exclusive streaming home for DC superheroes, Turner Classic Movies and some of the world's most celebrated TV shows. But it comes with a …

If you're 17 and reside in a backward backwater in Pennsylvania, your choices are slim, especially if you're alone and pregnant. That's the situation a bitter, angry Autumn Callahan finds herself in at the start of Eliza Hittman's harrowing "Never Rarely Sometimes Always." And the source of …

After sitting in escrow for four months, fledgling Apple TV+ stakes its first public offering on an in-house movie in "The Banker," an old-fashioned biopic with a thoroughly modern twist on the uphill climb of aspiring African American entrepreneurs. Although its claim of being "true" has be…
