Featured reviews for

Late Spring
Umbrella, Late Spring review by Dan Schneider source: http://www.umbrellajournal.com/spring2007/prose/Schneider.html
«What makes Late Spring a great film is that, like great classic novels, it is never preachy or condescending, but involving. Think of the great novels I compared it to, and then think of the crap put out in recent years by big name authors such as Joyce Carol Oates, T.C. Boyle, or Toni Morrison, and then think of this film and preachy PC films like Brokeback Mountain or Crash, and the comparative difference is manifest. Late Spring can be political when a character takes up an empty seat with his belongings or when Hara forces a smile. One need not have a character stick his tongue down another male character’s throat, nor his fingers between a female characters’ legs, to denote the political stance of the film and filmmaker.»
