Film Review: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Gets Bogged Down in Conventionality

CHICAGO – Like his first film, “Get Out,” writer/director Jordan Peele creates a horror/thriller filled with symbolism and laughs.

Blu-ray Review: Gorgeous Transfer For Stunning ‘Peter Gabriel: Secret World Live’

Peter Gabriel Secret World

CHICAGO – “Secret World,” Peter Gabriel’s 1994 tour in support of his amazing 1992 release, “Us,” was a landmark musical event captured on a live 2-CD release and DVD release before but recently carefully remastered for a Blu-ray release called “Peter Gabriel: Secret World Live.” The transfer is beautiful and the pure genius of the concert has lost none of its power, nearly twenty years after its release. Moving, inventive, and mesmerizing, this is one of the best concert Blu-rays yet released.
