    Review: Adequate Thriller 'Anna' Starring Mark Strong & Taissa Farmiga

    It is no spoiler to say that actor Noah Taylor pops up in a key role late in the adequate-at-best, occasionally involving thriller “Anna.” Like all of the appearances of the rail-thin “Shine” star, it is a welcome one; look no further than his recent work on “Game of Thrones” or his wonderfully obno...

    Review: Cop Thriller 'Blood' Starring Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox & Mark Strong

    LFF Review: Stephen Graham & Mark Strong Impress In Generic But Powerful Cop Thriller 'Blood'

    Coriolanus—movie review

    I don’t know what Shakespeare purists will make of Coriolanus, but as cinematic storytelling it’s awfully impressive: a muscular, contemporary reading of the play, deftly abridged and adapted by the prolific John Logan, who also wrote Hugo and Rango this year. The primary hero, on s...

    Brian Cox To Play Zach Galifianakis' Dad In 'Dog Fight'

    The cast of “Dog Fight” keeps getting more and more interesting. Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis and Jason Sudeikis all made sense for the Jay Roach-directed comedy about two politicians (Ferrell and Galifianakis) running for office.
