    War Horse—movie review

    I don’t like pigeonholing films, and I’ve never been fond of the term “chick flick,” but I’d be less than candid if I didn’t tell you that several women I know and respect (including my wife) were moved to tears by 'War Horse', while I was lukewarm about it. Normally, I’m a sucker for this kind of p...

    "War Horse": Is It Steven Spielberg Or Monty Python?

    It is as sweeping and as comfortably old-fashioned as a John Ford movie, but War Horse has the soul of a hollow chocolate Santa. It’s not as if Steven Spielberg has forgotten how to make a crowd-pleasing blockbuster. All the pieces of this World War I movie are in place, from Janusz Kamin...

    Holly Hunter & Peter Mullan Join Jane Campion's 'Top Of The Lake'

    As we're in the thick of the awards season, here's a gentle reminder (as if you already didn't know) that it's not really about "the best" of anything, but mostly about who has the most efficient campaign. If the right people get nominated and win along the way, that's ...

    VIFF '11: Paddy Considine's Directorial Debut 'Tyrannosaur' An Uneven Portrait Of A Damaged Man

    The opening scene of “Tyrannosaur” is a real belter. Through near whiplash-inducing cross cuts, we are introduced to a night in the life of Joseph (Peter Mullan) as he drinks heavily and stews with unfettered rage on a barstool (and back at home with a sawed-off wood baseball bat that looks like a l...

    Brit Action-Thriller 'Welcome To The Punch' Rounds Out With An Impressive Cast

    For a film produced on a government-funded scheme that gave its recipients a budget of £100,000, Eran Creevy’s debut film, 2008’s “Shifty,” has enjoyed a long cultural half-life. Although it didn’t get a decent airing outside of the U.K. – and even then was little-seen, in spite of an array of awards and critical attention – this hasn’t diminished the prospects of its director Creevy, whose follow-up “Welcome To The Punch” has been catching our attention since it we profiled its script when it charted high on the annual Brit List some months ago. Already confirmed to star were James McAvoy (who could do with off-setting his debonair know-it-a...
