“Boyhood” A Study of Growing Pains (Film Review)

Not many or any of the filmmakers that have made films in my lifetime have ever taken a chance on a production that would take 12 years in the making. No, Boyhood is not one of those blockbuster films that takes years of animation, or documentaries that have a lot of structure or even Mother […]

LECHEF poster art

“Le Chef” A Nice Helping of Good Comedy (Foreign Film Review)

Nicely written, directed and acted, the movie Le Chef conjures up visions of such films as Ratatouille and the creative Julie & Julia.
