    Sundance Review: Why Zal Batmanglij's 'The East' Is Fascinating and Illogical at the Same Time

    Suspenseful, ludicrous, fascinating, and utterly unsubtle, Zal Batmanglij's "The East" plays like an unholy mash-up of "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and "Alias."

    Richard Gere, Slyer Than Ever in 'Arbitrage'

    Supremely realistic though Arbitrage is meant to be, there is a magical twist in Richard Gere’s performance as Robert Miller, a hedge fund manager trying to save his company and his personal life. Gere evokes such sympathy that you’re likely to root for him even though he is cheatin...
