Movie review: ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is a feast for the eyes, emotions

"Crazy Rich Asians" is a crazy big deal. It's the first big Hollywood studio movie set in the present day featuring an all-Asian cast in 25 years, so there's a lot riding on Jon M. Chu's romantic comedy, an adaptation of Kevin Kwan's novel. The movie is already a success in terms of Asian representation in Hollywood, which is sorely lacking (in 2017, only 4.8 percent of top grossing movies featured an Asian character in a speaking role), and the resurrection of the rom-com. Thankfully, it more than delivers on the entertainment front too. With a screenplay by Adele Lim and Peter Chiarelli that makes personal empowerment as important as romantic love, and a talented, charismatic cast from across the globe, "Crazy Rich Asians" is a swoon-worthy romance, as well as funny and poignant – a feast for the eyes and emotions.

Review: Rob Tregenza’s ‘Gavagai’ is a beautiful, melancholy journey through loss and its aftermath

A story of implacable grief, unlikely companionship and stunning landscapes, "Gavagai" is as beautifully singular a movie as I've seen all year. You know you're in for something different in the opening moments, as a train pulls quietly into a deserted station in Telemark, Norway, and disgorges a German traveler, Carsten (Austrian actor Andreas Lust), who stumbles out with a troubled look on his face and a solemn stream of voice-over in his head.
