The Wolf of Snow Hollow   6/23/22

The rest of the cast also hold their own, my favorites being Riki Lindhome as Marshall's partner - whose loyalty likely keeps him employed - and Chloe East as Jim's daughter for how she never hesitates to call out her dad's failings.

The Two Faces of January   6/22/22
by Torgo
I watched it on Father's Day, and while it may actually be an anti-Father's Day movie, watching it on that holiday made the experience all the more resonant.

American Gigolo   6/17/22

Besides the iconic look, what I appreciate the most about the movie - and hopefully not to spoil it too much - is that unlike similar tales about reviled men whose encounter with the genuine or meaningful spells their doom - Carlito's Way and Uncut Gems come to mind - this one has a much different t...

Full Contact   5/27/22
