‘SUMMER OF SOUL’ OFFERS MORE THAN JUST GREAT MUSIC

1254
There are concert films, and then there is Summer of Soul (…or When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised), a knockout of a movie featuring precious performance footage that hasn’t been seen since it was shot in 1969. Ahmir Thompson,…

F9: THE FAST SAGA LEAVES LOGIC IN THE DUST

1114
Does a so-called summer movie have to be brain-dead? I don’t believe it. But then, I don’t believe the preposterous goings-on in F9, part of what’s now being called The Fast Saga. The series, which began in 2001 with an action yarn…

THE SPARKS BROTHERS: I’M A BELIEVER

2685

CRUELLA: THE DEVIL YOU SAY

3588
It says something about our times that a story that once featured cute, heroic dalmatians now focuses on their adversary, a larger-than-life villain (just as Sleeping Beauty has morphed into the saga of Maleficent). Parents should note the PG-13 rating on Cruella, which…
