Letter to the Editor – The Interview  by William Hopkinson JAN 20, 2015

Gatsby Review by Jamie Gilcig – Mix Jack & Howard you get DiCaprio’s Gatsby – 2 out of 5 bags of corn!

CFN – I desperately wanted to love Gatsby.  I really did.  So did the mostly female and older audience who sat in the dark theatre with myself and my companion and watched it. No, that’s The Aviator.

SHAME Fassbender & Mulligan Stunning – Movie Review by Jamie Gilcig – January 29, 2012

CFN – Shame is a stunningly bleak and hopeless movie.   It also is one of the best I’ve seen in the last year with not only stunning writing and direction; but truly magnificent performances by lead Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan,and Mr. Fassbender’s Penis. Director Steve McQueen doesn’t sugar coat life.  This movie is dark […]
