“My Life as a Movie”
Archive for: Alex Lamb
Harbinger film critic Alex Lamb gives his final preview of the most anticipated movies this summer.
There’s no denying “We Need to Talk About Kevin” is a difficult film — it’s the story of a mother’s worst nightmare and her seemingly evil son, told with structural complexity and devastating power.
The Foreign Language Film Oscar winner “A Separation” outshines all the other 2012 Oscar-winning movies with its authenticity, humanity and complex morality. This astounding piece of pure storytelling stands in a class of its own as it delivers a layered, relatable and inherently compelling tale, full of raw emotion and profoundly insightful truths about human nature.
Few things have been as constant in my life as “Star Wars” has. I’ve loved the movies since before I can remember, watching the original trilogy over and over when I was little and letting it set my imagination ablaze. It transported me to a dazzling universe of space heroes, alien creatures, Stormtroopers and of course, lightsabers. And no matter how old I get, I never have, and never will, leave that realm.
