    Boardwalk Empire Redux

    Summer is over and we return to Atlantic City by way of 'Boardwalk Empire', now in its third season. Either my life is getting duller or this show is getting better with each passing year, as I’ve been anxiously awaiting its return.

    TIFF Capsule Review: 'The Iceman'

    The historical background for "The Iceman" is the killing spree of hitman Richard Kuklinksi, a hired gun for the Gambino crime family from the fifties through the eighties, and the droll suburban existence he lived during that time with his clueless family. As Kuklinski, Michael Shannon easily fits the creepy lunatic role, but Winona Ryder's bland turn as the killer's wife epitomizes the lifeless trajectory of this cold portrait. When the movie begins, Kuklinski has already displayed his psychopathic tendencies by killing people when he's off-duty. For a while, director Ariel Vromen manages to hold some interest by fo...

    Venice Review: Michael Shannon Vehicle 'The Iceman' Is A Tired Take On The Mob Flick

    Are we living in a post-gangster movie age? From the early talkies to the Oscar-winning success of “The Departed,” the genre has been ever-popular and responsible for seminal films from “White Heat” and “The Godfather” to “Goodfellas” and “Pulp Fiction.” But one struggles to think of a standout film...

    Premium Rush—movie review

    I don’t know how a film this entertaining and expertly-made can show up the last week of summer, but I’m not complaining. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, whose fine work in indie films like 'The Lookout' went ignored by most moviegoers, has finally achieved stardom, and this flashy tale of a bicycle messenger...

    Review: 'Premium Rush' Sputters To The Finish Line

    New Photos: Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder & Chris Evans In 'The Iceman'

    If there's one genre that's more played out than the mob movie, it's the hitman picture. But can being based on a real-life tale give a film a little added edge when it falls into both categories? That's what the makers of "The Iceman" are hoping, and a stellar cast, led by Oscar-nominee Michael Sha...
