‘A Cat Named Leonard’ VOD Review

Stars: Ralph Macchio, Gina Gershon, David Zayas, Paul Sorvino, Sean Young, Jeff Kober | Written and Directed by Anthony Tarsitano

Wow, Ralph freaking Macchio… I’ve got to admit, it’s been some time since I saw Daniel Larusso in a movie. So of course I was gonna sit down and watch this flick! But what I did not expect was to find a whole cast of actors that maybe never set the world on fire but I have a certain affinity for.

A Cat Named Leonard is one of those bottle movies that takes place over one day, spending time with various different characters that you just know (because Movies) will all somehow connect to each other at some point or other, you know like Crash, Kids, Clerks, or any other movie of its nature these are just the ones come to mind.

‘Shut Eye’ Review: Despite Jeffrey Donovan’s Talents, We Can’t See a Future in Hulu’s Tarot Card Drama

‘Shut Eye’ Review: Despite Jeffrey Donovan’s Talents, We Can’t See a Future in Hulu’s Tarot Card Drama
Plenty of shows these days embrace their inner batshit insanity. Challenging norms via wild narratives or atypical execution is so deep within their nature that the show thrives on such inherent madness. Here at IndieWire, we refer to such efforts as “bonkers” TV, and Hulu’s latest original series, “Shut Eye,” could certainly be a candidate if it ever fully leans into its freshly bizarre elements.

After all, this is a show that constructs a climactic scene in which a woman walks between two rows of gypsies in a candlelit East L.A. mansion as the offended parties spit on her. And that’s just the start of her punishment for breaking the gypsy code. What comes next is enough to make even hardened TV viewers raise an eyebrow.

Yet “Shut Eye” blends a bit too much of the familiar with its crazy. Primarily tracking a veteran tarot card reader heading
