Love Lost and the Painful Reality of Saying Goodbye

Before beginning reviews of 2 emotional films to be seen at home, I’m thinking of friends quarantined alone following the death of a spouse.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

A dazzling, romantic romp involving two women in 1770 France.

Emma.

This is a British version of Little Women and it produces the same delightful impact. The dance scenes in both films are alluring.

Call of the Wild

Please be warned. My cryptic surgeon friend loved the cinematography and special effects while disliking the film. Then again, why trust a surgeon?

The Last Full Measure

Though a bit heavy-handed at times, so was Parasite and it won several Oscars!

The Rhythm Section

Not a bad movie if you are bored and left with nothing else to do.

Just Mercy

This is a stunning movie with historical significance that at times left me crying as I buried my face in my hands.

1917

A poetic historical film recreating the human tragedy inflicted on little people during World War I.

A Hidden Life

Lasting for 2 hours and 45 minutes, writer/director Terrence Malick once again finds a way to let a movie’s length rob the film of its dramatic importance.
