Ricki and the Flash:  Movie Review on Web Wombat


Screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) is not one to shy away from writing realistic, human female characters. Young Adult in particular, for me, was a powerful and almost upsettingly real portrayal of a fractured woman; Ricki and the Flash nears this territory, but skates by ever so slightly. With director Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia) in tow, Ricki and the Flash is ostensibly the story of a woman’s redemption and a family’s forgiveness but with such great minds at the helm, it manages more than shlock and “aww”.

The Life and Times of Dinah Washington

DVD + Netflix Reviews

The Life and Times of Dinah Washington: DVDs & Netflix on Web Wombat

 

This documentary is a brief overview, but really digs into the kind of woman Dinah was, why people loved (and hated) her, and how and why her music touched people the way it did. I went looking for a documentary about the singer, who died in 1963, because I have been so in love with her voice for so long; I adore a number of soul/blues women (Aretha, Bessie, Sarah Vaughan, Billie) but Dinah always comes out at the top of my list. There’s just something about that voice; I can’t go a day without it. Read more ...

Gene Kelly: Song and Dance Man : Theatre on Web Wombat

 

I’m not one to hark back to the “good old days” of cinema; there’s plenty of brilliant filmmaking, excellent actors and original ideas around now that we need not despair and act as if the best days are behind us. I would never presume that things were “better” in a time in which I did not actually live, like those people- best illustrated in Woody Allen’s piss-drinking Midnight in Paris- that yearn for bygone eras simply because they are bygone, and we like to look back with rose-coloured glasses. There’s more than enough to keep you going in today’s artistic landscape, but there’s one thing we don’t have, not anymore - Gene Kelly. Read more ....
