listed by Title

Atalanta/Bookcase-G/King-David/ we are more interested in excellent or distinctive work than the merely timely or fashionable. Quality is always in season, and often more topical and entertaining than currency or fashion admit. Thus, we aim to refer and amuse, rather than to announce and forget. We avoid spoiling surprises in reviews that recommend; other works take their chances.

The central column below names writers, directors, and/or actors to aid identification. Within reviews, credits are most-significant rather than inclusive. See PictureLike for a list of book reviews about movies & television.

  • Feature Films are theater headliners, DVDs, or television series;
  • Reels are one- or two-reel films, short films (non-musical), or television episodes;
  • Soundies are shorter musical films of song and/or dance, music videos.

All screen presentations are in color with sound, dialogue in English, unless stated otherwise.

Lorenzo [to Jessica]:

Sweet soul, let's in, and there expect their coming.
And yet no matter. Why should we go in?
My friend Stefano, signify, I pray you,
Within the house your mistress is at hand,
And bring your music forth into the air.      [exit Stefano]

How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!
Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
Creep in our ears. Soft stillness and the night
Become the touches of sweet harmony.

William Shakespeare
The Merchant of Venice, 5.1.48-56
