Montreal Film Journal http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/ Montreal Film Journal is a web journal publishing independant movie reviews since 1998. en-ca Somewhere http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001407 11/26/2010 Kevin Laforest Even though it's ostensibly about ennui (like every Sofia Coppola flick), that's not an excuse for it being so damn dull. (KL) Burlesque http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001406 11/26/2010 Kevin Laforest It falls very flat when it was clearly aiming for busty. (Joe Belanger) Faster http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001405 11/22/2010 Kevin Laforest An action thriller that, while flawed, still reminds us that, if he really wanted to, The Rock could still become the next Schwarzenegger. (KL) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001404 11/21/2010 Kevin Laforest Director David Yates has outdone himself this time out. (Joe Belanger) Morning Glory http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001403 11/12/2010 Kevin Laforest Pretty pleasant and often pretty funny. (Joe Belanger) For Colored Girls http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001402 11/6/2010 Kevin Laforest Despite the title, its emotional impact should translate to anyone capable of feeling, period. (Joe Belanger) Due Date http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001401 11/5/2010 Kevin Laforest Just like so much of Todd Phillipsís past work, the antics are all too often just plain stupid instead of stupidly hilarious. (Joe Belanger) Saw 3D http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001400 11/5/2010 Kevin Laforest It has got plenty of vomit inducing brutality to satisfy anyone looking for that. (Joe Belanger) Hereafter http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001399 10/24/2010 Kevin Laforest While all reasonably compelling separately, their plights never come together, which leaves the film feeling cold and detached. (Joe Belanger) Enter the Void http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001398 10/17/2010 Kevin Laforest At his best, Gaspar Noť is so far ahead of everyone else that Enter the Void remains an absolute must-see, as flawed and exhausting as it can be. (KL) Nowhere Boy http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001397 10/16/2010 Kevin Laforest Allows us to draw our own conclusions about what made the man that would become a legend rather than do all the drawing for us. (Joe Belanger) It's Kind of a Funny Story http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001396 10/13/2010 Kevin Laforest It isnít even that funny. It tries to be, and on occasion it can be, but the reason it isnít is pretty simple. It shouldn't be. (Joe Belanger) Never Let Me Go http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001395 10/7/2010 Kevin Laforest A sad, beautiful, thought-provoking picture that works on many different levels. (KL) A Letter to Elia http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001394 10/4/2010 Kevin Laforest As much, if not more about Scorsese as it is about Kazan. (KL) Let Me In http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001393 10/3/2010 Kevin Laforest It never manages to give any reason for its existence other than to make it more accessible for audiences uninterested in subtitles. (Joe Belanger) The Social Network http://www.montrealfilmjournal.com/review.asp?R=R0001392 9/30/2010 Kevin Laforest Easily ranks as one of the best films of 2010, and David Fincher's best work this side of Fight Club and Se7en.
