A dog looks to discover his purpose in life over the course of several lifetimes and owners.

A Dog’s Purpose (2017) Review
Parents need to know that A Dog’s Purpose provides a bit of a twist on the standard talking-animal movie. The story is narrated by a dog (voiced by Josh Gad), who begins his life as a golden retriever named Bailey whose best friend is a young boy named Ethan (Bryce Gheisar). Bailey remains loyally by Ethan’s side through his teenage years, even through Ethan’s first love (so expect some kissing and romance), until Bailey dies of old age … only to be reincarnated as a (female) German shepherd police dog. The dog continues to come back, living many lives as many different breeds. With each new human he — or she — lives with, the dog learns a little more about his purpose, until, years later, he returns to a familiar home and a familiar friend (Dennis Quaid). Although this movie will likely have emotional moments that might be too intense for sensitive younger kids — including the reccurring death of a pet — for the most part it looks like a heartfelt family dramedy for all dog lovers.

Staying Vertical (2016) Reviews
Seen at the Viennale 2016: A guy loses his creativity and drifts loose through his best years. But to be honest, we do not know whether this guy was creative in the first place. We can only assume that, because it might be logical. Maybe the whole movie is just some sort of insider-joke for filmmakers. I liked the sexual freedom of this movie, but could not follow the story itself. Many actions of the main guy seemed to happen out of nothing, without the wish of doing something with aim. Without any hint, why the guy is doing what he is doing I (and my brain) was benumbed. Maybe the script writer and the director of that movie had the same problem as the guy. No aim for the movie, no direction. Such is life. Sometimes.

The Comedian (2016) Reviews
What was the last good movie De Niro was in? You could probably only come up with Heat which was way back in 1995. He’s fat lazy and uninspired and even though this is a passion project, that comes through clearly here too.

De Niro was a national treasure at one point. His roles in Taxi Driver and Raging Bull still sets the standard for elite acting, but success has extinguished whatever muse once drove him.

He should just stick to small roles like in American Hustle where people don’t have to be confronted with his ego and stature. Everything he does, your mind is thinking “OK now De Niro is firing a gun like an idiot without aiming” instead of “OK now (character name) is firing a gun like an idiot”.

Sad to see. I hope this never happens to Will Ferrel.

20th Century Women (2016) Reviews

“20th Century Women” is the story of three women of different generations who help to see a teenage boy learn what it is to become a man.

The three women, (Annette Bening, Greta Gerwig, and Elle Fanning)become the primary influences in the life of Bening’s son (Lucas Jade Zumann). Being is nothing short of fantastic as the mother, Dorothea, a product of the ’40s and ’50’s, who is leading a bohemian-type lifestyle, and who rents rooms to Abbie (a photographer played by Gerwig, and a mechanic ( Billy Crudup). I would look for Gerwig and Crudup to contend for Best Supporting Oscars. Zumann is refreshing as Bening’s son, Jamie.

Mike Mills(“Beginners”) has created a setting in 1979 that is easily identifiable and relatable. There are no plot twists or surprises, just interesting characters that actually talk and listen to each other.

Paterson (2016) Reviews

Paterson is a 2016 drama film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. The film stars Adam Driver and Golshifteh Farahani as a Paterson, New Jersey couple, one of which is a bus driver and a poet.

Director : Jim Jarmusch
Writer : Jim Jarmusch
Stars : Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani, Helen-Jean Arthur
Genre : Comedy, Drama
Release : 16 May 2016 France/Cannes Film Festival – 9 February 2017 Russia
“Paterson (Adam Driver) is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey – they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer. He goes home to his wife, Laura (Golshifteh Farahani). By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily, each a different and inspired project. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his secret gift for poetry. The history and energy of the City of Paterson is a felt presence in the film and its simple structure unfolds over the course of a single week. The quiet triumphs and defeats of daily life are observed, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.”
Paterson (2016) Reviews
Paterson is a celebration of the small details in life. A poetic and charming love-story about a perfectly ordinary couple, living in a perfectly ordinary town.The town in question is Paterson, New Jersey. Home of poet William Carlos Williams, comedian Lou Costello, and one of America’s largest waterfalls. The man in question, in true Jarmusch style, is also named Paterson (played with pinpoint subtly by Adam Driver). Paterson is a hard-working bus driver who quietly goes about his duties, all the while allowing the scenery and eavesdropped conversation to inspire his main passion in life; writing poetry. Meanwhile, his girlfriend and the love of his life, played without fault by Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani, is a stay-at-home creative. She spends her day baking imaginative cupcakes and making new curtains from scratch. The films narrative centres around a seven day week. Each day brings a new variation on the theme, and each moment a reflection on two people who wholeheartedly accept each other for who they are.Paterson is a quiet and contemplative film that sits perfectly in Jarmusch’s repertoire. It’s a film about how people choose to live their life, regardless of the necessities to work and make money. Like poetry, the words and images flow with little dramatic tension or conflict. Jarmusch explained at Cannes that he intended Paterson to be an antidote to the modern action film, and if this is the case, I’ll definitely be coming back for another dose.

“Tonny Erdmann(Peter Simonischek) is Winfried, 65, a music teacher with a strong penchant for jokes, who lives with his old dog. His daughter Ines (Sandra Hüller) is a career woman who travels around the world in order to optimize companies. Father and daughter could therefore not be more different. He, the soulful, socially romantic ’68. She, the rational management consultant who tries to raise her profile at a major outsourcing project in Romania to compete in a mans world.

Winfried does not see much of his daughter at home, he decides after the death of his dog to visit her spontaneously. But the visit does not lead to a rapprochement.

Surprisingly leaves Ines on his offer, and father and daughter making a startling discovery: The harder they clashed, the closer they come.”

Toni Erdmann (2016) Reviews

Toni Erdmann starts slow and is in general a movie that takes its time. 162 minutes might suggest an overlong or very slow paced film, but in this 162 minutes we get a firework-like examination of a relationship between a father and a daughter. And yes, Toni Erdmann is a comedy. There are some moments that are so hilarious, that they gained applause mid film from the audience at my screening. But it is also a tragedy. A really complex one actually. There is so much loneliness in those characters, so much longing. Toni Erdmann is constantly entertaining, extremely well acted and emotionally compelling. A masterpiece of German cinema.
