Mike Madriaga 9 a.m., July 25
Well, now - to hear David Elliott tell it, I was too hasty in my scorn for Blackthorn. "A terrific, full-hearted Western" - wow, really? So very glad to hear it. But what has me really excited is The Mill and the Cross - think Girl With a Pearl Earring, but with Bruegel's grit instead of Vermeer's light. I do love me some medieval peasantry. Our man four-stars 'em both, and has more kind words for Thunder Soul and Margaret. It all makes the two stars for the Clooney-Gosling Battle of Handsome The Ides of March look positively dim. Thank goodness for fall.
