Matt writes: In honor of last weekend's crowd-pleasing hit, "Black Panther," the eagerly anticipated Marvel blockbuster helmed by "Creed" director Ryan Coogler, we have gathered three articles about the picture that is sure to delight fans of all ages. First up are Nell Minow's in-depth interviews with Coogler as well as costume designer Ruth Carter. We also have a beautiful four-star review penned by our critic Odie Henderson, who writes, “The numerous battle sequences that are staples of the genre are present, but they float on the surface of a deep ocean of character development and attention to details both grandiose and minute.”
Matt writes: With so many potential Oscar contenders vying for one's attention this season, I'd like to take a moment and recommend one that I absolutely loved. It is "Novitiate," a brilliantly acted and provocative drama written and directed by Margaret Betts. It revolves around a group of young women training to be nuns while under the strict guidance of their Reverend Mother (played by Melissa Leo in an Oscar-worthy performance). The ensemble includes some of the finest emerging talent in modern cinema, including Margaret Qualley, Liana Liberato, Morgan Saylor and Maddie Hasson. The film is currently in limited release and should definitely be sought out.
