Parasite Is Brilliant Insight Into The Class War

Parasite

Parasite, the latest film by South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer), is a sometimes outlandish, sometimes horrifying and at all times brilliant look into the class war through the eyes of a poor family of four who become the domestic help for a wealthy family.

When Sarah saw the film at the Toronto International Film Festival the consensus among critics was mostly “holy shit.”

TIFF 2019: Dolemite Is My Name Is A Strong Return For Eddie Murphy

Dolemite Is My Name

Eddie Murphy’s tribute to blaxploitation star Rudy Ray Moore in Dolemite Is My Name isn’t just charming, it may spark a full-on renaissance for Murphy.

Murphy’s efforts in Dolemite Is My Name certainly do a good job to remind everyone why Murphy is a really big movie star.

TIFF 2019: Joker Is Not Profound

The Joker

Apologies to incel film Twitter, but Joker isn’t that special a movie.

Sarah saw the film when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and determined that there’s probably Joker fanfiction that’s better done.

For fans of Lovecraft, outlandish sci-fi, alpacas and Nicolas Cage torqued up to Maximum Cage the new film Color Out Of Space is must-see viewing.

TIFF 2019: Honey Boy Is A Complex Work From Shia LaBeouf

Honey Boy

Shia LaBeouf’s new film Honey Boy charts the relationship and eventual fallout between a child star and his father.

It’s a deep, complex piece that almost sheds any association with Michael Bay from LaBeouf’s resume.

Sarah reviewed the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival for Consequence of Sound.

TIFF 2019: The Laundromat Means Well, But Doesn’t Advance The Class War

The Laundromat

Meant to be some sort of parable about the Panama Papers and the financial industry and the machinations of the greedy, what The Laundromat boasts in good intentions it misses in actual execution.

Put it this way: it’s not going to be the movie that motivates the masses in the forthcoming class war. At least that’s how Sarah feels.

She reviewed the film at the Toronto International Film Festival for Consequence of Sound.
