Last Call at the Oasis

Last Call at the Oasis

Last Call at the Oasis Reviewed by Marion D.S. Dreyfus   The title is a wonderful evocation, to begin with, impressively apt for the topic at hand. I was at first not that moved, since I have been following the water wars of the world for close to 20 years. But as the film unrolled, [...]

Pink Ribbons

Pink Ribbons

Directed by Lea Pool Reviewed by Marion D.S. Dreyfus     Pink Ribbons is a documentary aimed at raising awareness about so-called “pink washing” of the search for a cure for breast cancer. This is a sobering topic, of course, with the number of women—and men—contracting breast cancer escalating into the millions. Unlike some diseases, [...]

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

  Directed by John Madden Reviewed by Marion D.S. Dreyfus The menu du jour seems to be losing and finding, or vice versa, in many films today. This one also concerns the warehousing of people in their post-retirement years. Outstanding cast includes the more-than-marvelous Judy Dench (whose macular degeneration necessitates her hiring someone to throw [...]

Darling Companion

Darling Companion

  Directed by Lawrence Kasdan Reviewed by Marion D.S. Dreyfus If you love one-trick pony films, this is your meat. Despite winning performances by Diane Keaton, Richard Jenkins, the often acerbic or silly-billy Kevin Kline, terrific Diane Wiest and Elizabeth Moss (five seconds, give or take, on screen), this is a film that would never [...]

Free Men

Free Men

Directed by Ismael Ferroukhi Reviewed by Marion D.S. Dreyfus   The plot of this film diverges from the bolus of most American film we are force-fed in that it deals powerfully with subject matter that counts. It deals with an almost-unrecognized aspect of WWII in Europe, eliciting a strong emotional cathexis from the viewer who [...]

Dreyfus A full-house event at TeatroStageFest 2012, NYC’s first U.S. reading of Deadline by Mexican playwright Sabina Berman, showcased terrific performances by its two stars, sexy Jimmy Smits (Broadway vet, Globe and EMMY winning TV—L.A.Law—and stage actor, recently of Broadway’s G-d [...]

The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games

DIRECTED BY GARY ROSS REVIEWED BY MARION D.S. DREYFUS   The biggest box-office CRUSH is expected be this film based on a long-popular book about teenagers being forced to fight to the finish. “THE HUNGER GAMES” makes you wonder, though, why. Apocalyptic, but to what end?       A mish-mash of Shirley Jackson’s short, [...]

The Dark Knight Rises, Promises an End to the Batman Era
