"Hook! Hook! Give us the Hook!" comes to mind when thinking of the infamous pirate Captain James Hook, played famously by Dustin Hoffman in the Robin Williams-led 'Hook' film of the early '90s.

‘Anna Karenina’ Review

Focus Features
Focus Features

Do yourself a favor, don't fall in love. This is my interpretation, at least, of Joe Wright's highly stylized version of Count Leo Tolstoy's "best novel ever" 'Anna Karenina' (which, I may as well fess up, I've never read).
