THE IRISH PUB

The Irish Pub

“If you spend as much time hanging out in bars as I do you’ll probably find it delightful. Fegan favors straight-on shots from a patron’s point-of-view, occasionally interrupted by afternoon customers. It’s a relaxed, unassuming picture that breezes by in a slight 75 minutes, pausing once in awhile for a song before heading out for another pint in another town.” – North Shore Movies, 10/23/2014

KILL THE MESSENGER

kILL

“Jeremy Renner is, at heart, a weirdo character actor whose live-wire performance in The Hurt Locker resulted in Hollywood mistakenly shoving him into leading man parts for which he’s ill-equipped. Whether flinging arrows as the lamest Avenger or starring as The Bourne Lazenby, he feels strait-jacketed in straight roles.” – North Shore Movies, 10/15/2014

LISTEN UP PHILIP

Listen Up Philip 3

“Writer-director Alex Ross Perry’s Listen Up Philip is a rueful, remarkable film about how success can still feel like defeat. I first saw it at Sundance back in January and haven’t shut up about it since. It’s funny as hell, but funny in that way where the laughs catch in your throat. A literary cousin to Llewyn Davis, Philip finds the melancholy in misanthropy.” – Movie Mezzanine, 10/13/2014
