Review: In 'Colette,' a literary great is finally unbound

Wash Westmoreland's "Colette" is a very British movie about a very French feminist icon. A handsome and lively period film, it's too timid to capture the ravenous appetites of the literary force that was Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette.

Review: 'Life Itself' is star-studded, earnest but lacking

Hallmark sentimentality, passionate defenses of Bob Dylan's "Time Out of Mind" and horrific head traumas are thrown together in Dan Fogelman's "Life Itself ," a curious cocktail of a movie from the "This is Us" creator about all of life's highest highs and lowest lows across generations and continents. Fogelman has seemingly never met an extreme emotion he doesn't want to exploit, and "Life Itself" might be the apex of that guiding principle.
