The Omen
Julia Stiles is miscast, although Mia Farrow delights in this unnecessary remake of a perfectly good child-as-Antichrist movie.

Miami Rhapsody
Miami Rhapsody's aspirations are clear. It longs to be a Gershwin Manhattan. Easy-listening rum & Coke is more like what it achieves. Even if Mia Farrow weren't cast in one...

The Astronaut's Wife
You have to wonder if the appearance here of Samantha Eggar is a coincidence. In David Cronenberg's 1979 film The Brood, she tackled a similar motif, that of the genre-specific...

Film Review  September 3, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...Depp has his trademark intensity throttled all the way up here, but it's for naught. Theron, for her part, looks like a Polanski-era Mia Farrow, exhibiting all of the coif and none of the charm..."

Dark Horse
Optimistic youth continue to curdle in this latest Todd Solondz outing, even though the film's tone is less shrill and insistent.

Widows' Peak
There's a twist at the end of the mostly excellent period mystery Widows' Peak that'll probably have the masses chatting nearly as much as The Crying Game did. Luckily, it's...

Husbands and Wives deromanticizes modern love, revealing it as a human condition ultimately motivated by logic rather than impulse: the heart may flutter or bleed, but it's a resilient, flexible...

It's easy to be too enthusisatic about a Woody Allen film -- it's the result of peer pressures. The problem is that when one is really great, when it really...

Annabelle
The doll from hell is back.

Film Review  October 10, 2014, by Marc Savlov
"...No amount of studiously uncool decorative metal wall hangings and billowing chintz, however, can make anything original out of the low-rent proceedings. The Polanski rips begin with the obvious (having a couple named Mia and John, as in Farrow and Cassavetes, is about as blatant as you can get) and continue throughout, to an annoying degree..."

'The Last Unicorn' takes a victory lap at the Alamo Drafthouse
Screens Story  May 31, 2013, by Amy Gentry
"...What sets The Last Unicorn apart from its animated brethren? Well, for starters, there's the dark, moody plot, infused with Beagle's wry, deadpan humor and laced with melancholic themes of mortality and regret. Upon discovering that she's the last of her kind, a lone unicorn (voiced by Mia Farrow) sets out to find the rest of her kin, undergoing a startling transformation into a human woman at the height of her quest..."

"...RECKLESSD: Norman RenŽ; with Mia Farrow, Scott Glenn, Mary-Louise Parker, Tony Goldwyn, Eileen Brennan, Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Dorff. (PG-13, 92 min.) Okay; itÕs Christmastime and youÕre thinking that you just might explode if you watch ItÕs a Wonderful Life one more time. Although we embrace as a part of our heritage that movieÕs lessons about the goodness of humanity, the riches inherent in living a simple, uncelebrated life, and the community virtues practiced by small-town Middle Americans, stillÉ there are just some holiday seasons when HollywoodÕs nostalgic vision of the Americana that never was seems nearly as sticky and welcome as another fruitcake..."

Wonder Wheel
Woody Allen's ode to Coney Island
starstar
Film Review  December 8, 2017, by Steve Davis
"...As is the case with most of Allen’s films in the last 25 years or so, the script plays like a first draft, with the characters spouting stilted dialogue you’d never use in conversation, much less ever say out loud. (It’s weird, but you can hear Mia Farrow speaking some of the words.) When Timberlake’s tanned (and unreliable) narrator, a wannabe Eugene O’Neill who calls himself a writer but apparently never writes, breaks through the fourth wall to address the film’s thematic quandaries, you cringe..."

Joshua
The privileged nuclear family becomes a hellish dystopia as a result of a 9-year-old child's subtle, nuanced, unspoken manipulations.
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  July 13, 2007, by Marc Savlov
"...There are moments in Joshua that recall, in their spare, sublime paranoiac vision of parenthood, another archetypal cinematic bad seed: no, not Damien of The Omen, but Rosemary Woodhouse's newborn, Adrian, later to become the father of lies, flies, and so on in Rosemary's Baby. Texas-born filmmaker Ratliff, working from a script co-written with David Gilbert, mines a tonally similar vision of the nuclear family as hellish dystopia, and despite the lack of Mia Farrow's crucified-puppy eyes (or anything as freakishly apropos as her third-act Vidal Sassoon hairdo), Joshua succeeds on its own terms, supernatural or not..."

"...WESTWARD HO: It's just not summer until Project Transitions has its annual Texas Swing fundraiser – and what a sizzler it was (it was so hot I found myself thanking the spirits above that I've chosen a Mia Farrow circa 1968 haircut, or I would have looked like I'd been "rode hard and put up wet"). But, heat be damned, Scholz Garten was packed! The seductive scent of barbecue permeated the night, while the music of the legendary Alvin Crow set the pace..."

Birth
If your dead husband returned to you in the body of a 10-year-old boy, would you seize the opportunity for your romance to be born again or would you call Child Welfare?
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  October 29, 2004, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...So much of Birth occurs in quiet or near-silence that the impact of the movie is conveyed through the heroine’s expressions. Kidman’s face (framed by the cropped hairdo that’s pointedly reminiscent of Mia Farrow in that other New York-set supernatural tale Rosemary’s Baby) registers a remarkable range of emotions, often within the confines of a single take (best seen in the film’s several-minutes-long opera sequence)..."

Matter Over Mind
The proposed Cypress Realty Development in Dripping Springs
News Story  September 21, 2001, by Rob Curran and Amy Smith
"...The concept crystallized in 1980, with the formation of the Ideal Village Development Cooperative of Austin, a governing board of sorts that integrated a business plan and some real estate savvy with the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the spiritual leader whose name became a household word in 1968, when he introduced the Beatles and Mia Farrow -- and the rest of the world, for that matter -- to the wonders of Transcendental Meditation. Mindful of the Maharishi's vision of creating "ideal villages" around the globe, DevCo, as the cooperative called itself, raised funds through personal contributions and others committed to the project..."
