The Miseducation of Cameron Post

As memorably sung in Billy Jack (1971), “Do it in the name of heaven, you can justify it in the end.”

Alpha

Ever walk through a Humane Society shelter that takes care of dogs waiting to be adopted?  This movie will provide you with the same emotional charm.

BlacKkKlansman

I join my nephew John Hammerle, a lawyer and movie reviewer in Chicago, in describing BlacKkKlansman as the best film released to this date in 2018.

Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin is a tiny little film filled with great significance. 

Leave No Trace

Few little moments in film are as endearing as when you watch Mr. Foster and Ms. McKenzie click their tongues twice at each other to say “I love you.”

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

This film is a perfect example of why I see most movies alone.  I almost always enjoy the ride, and few others share my enthusiasm.

Dunkirk

If you majored in history in college as I did, this film teaches you more about an event in World War II than you will ever learn in a textbook.

Hearts Beat Loud

This little film defines why I love going to the movies.

First Reformed

This was one of those films that left you feeling that it was a class assignment where you were required to write a paper outlining your reaction.
