Review: Jackie

— by RON WILKINSON — Director Pablo Larraín and writer Noah Oppenheim took on a prodigious task when they chose to recreate Camelot in the 21st century. In a way, it was a hopeless task, like asking an actor to play Hitler. Nobody can duplicate the real thing because one simply had to b[...]

Review: Maggie’s Plan

— by RON WILKINSON — When will Greta Gerwig move out of New York City? No doubt this quirky and totally Greta movie received a lot of support from the Big Apple for showcasing several city tourist attractions, but it did not do the story any good. Despite the overwhelming exposure for th[...]

Review: Frances Ha

— by RON WILKINSON — Greta Gerwig (“Greenburg”) comes flying out of the screen and into your heart in this surprisingly disarming and genuine coming of age story by Noah Baumbach (co-written by Gerwig). Threatening at first to become just another self-absorbed New York poor girl who [...]

‘Greenberg’: Behind the Scenes and a Poster Peek

— by JASON EAKEN — I could tell very early into the trailer for “Greenberg” that I didn’t want to see it. Later, when the trailer told me it was made by Noah Baumbach, I knew I didn’t want to see it, for aside from the brilliant “The Squid and the[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Greenberg’

— by SEAN GERSKI — When writer-director Noah Baumbach first came on the scene, I associated him with Whit Stillman (this is a very high compliment). Sure, the Chris Eigeman connection helped, but both seemed to be making movies that were of a similar vein. Baumbach’s “Kicking[...]
