Film Review: ‘Woodlawn’

October 19, 2015

Courtesy of Pure Flix Given the dramatic potential of its nondenominational plot elements — high-school football, racial tensions in the 1970s Deep South, an appearance by a secular saint of college sports legend — “Woodlawn” could very well appeal beyond the usual target audience for faith-based indies. This overly long yet consistently involving period drama by Jon […]

September 13, 2015

Courtesy of StudioCanal “Everybody knows the fight was fixed,” husks Leonard Cohen over the closing credits of Stephen Frears’ “The Program,” a straight-spinning dramatization of cycling champ Lance Armstrong’s much-scrutinized fall from grace. It’s a rather literal application of Cohen’s 1988 track “Everybody Knows,” its cryptic AIDS-era undertow repurposed here as a warning against unkeepable […]
