The Wife— Running Time: 1:40 — Rating: R

Let’s look first at those responsible for “The Wife” because every one of them contributes to making this movie the winner that it is. Björn Runge directs the script written by Jane Anderson from the novel by Meg Wolitzer. Music, filming, script and performances form a single admirable whole.

Movie review: Operation Finale

Movie review Ben Kingsley as Eichman.jpg

Operation Finale — Running Time: 2:06 — Rating: PG-13

“Operation Finale” raises tough questions about the filming of genuine tragedies. This would be a fine movie if it were fiction, but the Holocaust is a subject that doesn’t lend itself to fiction. To fictionalize the gassing of 6 million men, women and children is to tinker with history and it just doesn’t work. What does work is the production of repeated documentaries that keep the tragedy alive throughout the present and future as a lesson never to be forgotten.

Crazy Rich Asians— Running Time: 2:00 — Rating: PG-13

Crazy Rich Asians is a movie that could have gone wrong for all kinds of reasons and instead does everything right. It is cleverly designed to give audiences a taste of the cultures of both America and Singapore and it is delivered by terrific actors who understand perfectly what their all-Asian cast is trying to do. Don’t miss this one.

movie review Puzzle.jpg

Puzzle— Running Time: 1:43 — Rating: R

A fine cast can enliven a dull story and dull cast can kill a good one. When outstanding actors land in a sharply original story, the results can be explosive. That happens in “Puzzle.” Don’t miss it.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout— Running Time: 2:27 — Rating: PG-13

Tom Cruise and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie have nailed us to our seats with suspense — again. As the credits roll for “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” you are likely to sit immobile in in your seat in wonderful fear. If that sounds crazy, it is.
