This month and into February there is a treasure trove of rare treats and great opportunities to see all kinds of film around New England.
Movie Review: Of Vice and Men — “A Dangerous Method”
“A Dangerous Method” fits neatly into director David Cronenberg’s body of work, which is often obsessed with a body-mind connection.
Film Review: Of Sex and “Shame”
Director Steve McQueen’s skillful exploration of troubled human behavior and his use of New York as a psychological landscape make “Shame” off-putting to watch, while at the same time it draws us in. We have no moral compass beyond our own attitudes to ambiguous contemporary sexual mores.
