Cinema Cindy Reviews 'Brooklyn'

“Brooklyn” is a lovely film, satisfyingly sweet and kind to its audience. Based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Colm Tóibín, this Irish film tells the story of the conflicting values of duty and love, faced by a young woman emigrant to America.

Cinema Cindy Reviews 'The Big Short'

on January 28, 2016 - 7:32am
By CYNTHIA BIDDLECOMB
Los Alamos
 
“The Big Short” could be the most important film of 2015. It exposes the risky financial under-girdings of our capitalist system where the key players, big banks, are expected to play by the rules and don’t.
 
Greed is the central motivator and some level of gambling is inherent. Yet our nation is dependent on this corrupt system.
 
The film dramatizes the 2005-2007 events leading up to the burst of the housing bubble. We lived through the foreclosures and the bank losses, the market failures and government bailouts.

“The Revenant”, at 2 hours and 36 minutes in length, is a test of endurance for the moviegoer. But compared to the story of endurance told in the film, that is nothing.
 
In 1823, Hugh Glass was serving as a scout on an American fur-trapping expedition through the upper Missouri River watershed, in Montana and North Dakota. While out hunting food for the party, Glass unknowingly gets between a grizzly and her two cubs. He is severely mauled and left for dead by the bear.
