REVIEWS: Chef, Neighbors, Stage Fright, The Double & Palo Alto

This week on Popcorn & Prosecco, we discuss Chef, Stage Fright and Neighbors

Chef: "light, jaunty and funny."

Stage Fright: "Stage Fright clearly suffers from a low-budget that hurt Sable's ability to bring his vision into better focus. Nonetheless, the film is sick, silly and entertaining."

The Double: "little more than a pretty pastiche that nails the style of its influences but lacks their emotional weight." 

Palo Alto: "Coppola nails emotional authenticity, but lacks insight. So, in the end the plight and pain of these characters may linger, but the point of Palo Alto is lost."
