Dexter

Dexter is one of those GREAT stories that you just cannot seem to stop watching. Even when it gets a little too gory for my taste, I find myself unable to turn the TV off. Most of this, I would say, could be attributed to the writing. All of the characters are VERY well-structured. Not […]

Cassandra’s Dream

This movie is no Match Point but I found it to be a good thriller that uses family loyalty as the catalyst for a series of wrongdoings. Like Match Point it is a drama, without any hint of Allen’s usual comic banter…also no hint of Allen himself among the cast (also reminiscent of Match Point). […]
