I honestly don’t understand Keanu Reeves’ appeal. Sure, he appears to be appealing as a person and affable on screen, but–for the most part–he doesn’t act more so than just appear. And the ‘for the most part’ is the Bill & Ted movies, The Matrix and Speed. That’s it. There can be all sorts of […]
Keanu Reeves seems like a genuinely decent guy though something about him bothers me (and truth be told has bothered me for quite awhile). He can’t act.

My problem with the movie–sight unseen–are less with the auteur behind the camera than the subject matter, which revolves around two Catholiic missionaries, played by Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield, who head […]
