The Constant Gardner

Wow. What a great movie. I think this is the first film I’ve reviewed for 5 stars on the blog in the year and a half that I’ve been writing on it. The Constant Gardener is a powerful drama that blends character-driven story and political thriller in equal parts while Read more…
