I Wrote These Things: Weeks Ending 10/15
I compared and contrasted Tower and Newtown, two new, powerful documentaries about gun violence and school shootings.
From the New York Film Festival, I covered the new Almodóvar and the new Assayas, with some thought on the catlike nature of Kristen Stewart.
I reviewed The Girl on the Train, which is terrible.
Also reviewed The Accountant, which is also terrible.
And I wrote about Kevin Hart's new concert movie, and how it reminds me of Richard Pryor's.
For "Second Glance," I looked at the post-Purple Rain filmography of Prince.
I had somehow never done Mommie Dearest for "Bad Movie Night," so I took care of that.
And your Blu-ray/DVD/VOD guides for 10/4 and 10/11.
