1. Drama Movies Column - News and Reviews 7
Do you want to watch a film written by a computer? Would you care? This week's column offers some thoughts on the use of artificial intelligence in the film industry. I also review Dorian Bond's memoir "Me and Mr. Welles".
2. Drama Movies Column - News and Reviews 6
March is Women's History Month. In this week's column, I discuss three books on the history of women in film and two features from female directors - "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" and "The Bookshop".
3. Drama Movies Column - News and Reviews 3
This focus of this week's column is female filmmakers. I look forward to Anne Sewitsky's new film about skater Sonja Henie, discuss Amy Adrion's 2018 documentary "Half the Picture",and celebrate the success of Susanne Bier's "Bird Box".
4. Robin and Marian Film Review
"Robin and Marian" is an adult corrective to the "happily ever after" versions of the Robin Hood tale. Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn are perfectly matched in this multi-layered story of an aging hero.
5. Straight Time and Cisco Pike Review

I discuss upcoming films from directors Kasi Lemmons and Dee Rees. Also, a change to the Drama Movies site in 2019.
8. Drama Movies Column - News and Reviews 5
Tennis is on my mind this week as Roger Federer is poised to win his 100th singles title. "John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection" is Julien Faraut's enlightening look at McEnroe's most successful year and the symbiosis between tennis and cinema.
9. The Day of the Dolphin Film Review
"The Day of the Dolphin", released in 1973, is the third and final collaboration between screenwriter Buck Henry and director Mike Nichols. Completely different from "The Graduate" or "Catch-22", this unique political thriller based on interspecies communication is still worth viewing.
10. The Shepherd Film Review
Jonathan Cenzual Burley's third feature film contrasts the beauty of the Spanish countryside with the pressures of the modern world. A contented shepherd is forced to take drastic action when a land developer threatens to bulldoze his farm.
