Upcoming Events

david_prown_120The magic of movie-going and Red Bank's Clearview Art Cinema is so present with its current showing of "Starbuck".

Had no clues what it was about (coffee?), It was a french-canadian film with sub-titles and I didn't know anybody in it. Fit the time slot I had available and "often" this theatre showcases some real surprises.

I think I'm getting old as I used this word earlier in the year when describing "Quartet", but "Starbuck" is also Delightful (please don't tell my 4 siblings I used that word - they'll tease me endlessly).

This movie came out 20 months ago in Canada. Well they say it is worth waiting for good things and this film is worth it!

First 3rd of this movie, the ultimate loser David Wozniak who is a 40-ish lug-nut working in the families butcher shop and is a horrible employee. Plus he has tons of bad habits, very insensitive to his now pregnant girlfriend. Plus he owes thugs 80K, is growing pot, and gets the crap beaten out him for non-repayment.

We learn that when younger, he earned money (making endless sperm bank donations, that he later discovered thru a lawyer, yielded over 500 children. And 142 have filed a class action suit to press the fertility clinic to release the true identity of "Starbuck".

I don't want to go any further regarding this story except the lead character becomes more and more likable. Plus the value of "love" (in many facets) keeps surfacing and just adds magic to this film.

Just fabulously cast and so well done (and enjoyable). I was shocked how much I smiled and laughed during this very special movie. You simply didn't want it to end.

Two thoughts - to me it is a shame that this movie is rated "R", but I guess it is a pretty adult theme. However, very little violence, no sex and minimal bad language.

Secondly, pay attention to the the Wozniaks' T-shirts/shirts which change in virtually very single scene. The number of unique, sports "throw back" shirts are priceless.

Again, a very special film..."utterly delightful"
