DVD Review: The Merchant Of Venice

Michael DohertyDVD Review, MoviesLeave a Comment

The Merchant Of Venice

Laurence Olivier is known for his earlier Shakespeare films – Hamlet, Richard III, Henry V – but it was his King Lear that first really impressed me, much more than his earlier work.  He gave an incredible performance as Lear. A decade before his King Lear, he took on the role of Shylock in Jonathan Miller’s production of The Merchant … Read More

Invisible Scars

Invisible Scars is a documentary about child abuse. The movie’s co-director and co-producer, Johnna Janis, was abused by her father as a child, and by exploring and exposing that abuse with this documentary, she seems to be coming to terms with her own experience. It is obviously a very personal film, and she herself is on camera for the majority … Read More

Rachael Sage: Choreographic

On Rachael Sage’s new release, Choreographic, she delivers a sound that mixes pop and folk really well. She is backed by a band that features prominently both cello and violin, instruments I love, creating an emotionally moving and satisfying group of songs, nearly all of which she wrote. In addition to writing and providing lead vocals, Rachael Sage plays piano, … Read More

theunicorn

It’s not often that I’ve ever wanted to call smut sweet, but this really was. The Unicorn, a recent new book from Delphine Dryden, fits into that spot. It’s not *really* new, it is a reissue of Roses and Chains, published in 2011, but it’s been very heavily revised and reissued. Mara knows what she wants, a real relationship with … Read More

The Front Bottoms

There are a lot of factors that go into making a great show. And if I can say anything for this show, it’s that the atmosphere, and for lack of a better word, “vibes,” made it what it was. I’ll admit that I came solely for The Front Bottoms. I had never even heard of the opening acts — Brick … Read More
