The Last Suit Movie Review

Nicely Pressed

"The Last Suit," the latest film by Argentine director/writer Pablo Solarzhat, starts out on a downbeat note as a family is pushing its patriarch out the door and into an old people's home. But, it then becomes a sweet, dramatic, and occasionally amusing tale of a senior citizen accomplishing a lifelong goal.

Abraham Burtzstein (Miguel Angel Sola) is a retired 88-year-old tailor living in Buenos Aires whose family has sold his house out from under him. They aren't overtly mean to him. They smile and kiss him while pushing him out his own door.

In the middle of the night before he is to move to his new home, Abraham calls a cab and heads out on his own. All we learn is that he wants to go to Poland to accomplish a near-lifelong goal, and that he is carrying with him a garment bag that contains a suit.

"The Last Suit" is all about Abraham's physical and personal mental journey into his own past and towards the place where his life began. Along the way he meets many strangers who dislike him initially but all end up helping him in one way or another. His encounter with Maria (Ángela Molina), the lady behind the desk at a small hotel he checks into, is particularly rewarding. These interactions are what makes it all worth the viewer's time.

Near its end, the final details of the reasons for his trek are revealed. It's all about his long put-off quest to find someone he knew seventy years earlier. The last few scenes are as tear-jerking and manipulative as can be, but when everything is done right by director Solarz and you have a pitch-perfect performance by the lead character, it's fine to just succumb to the manipulation.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
