    Urbanworld 2011 Review - Victoria Mahoney's "Yelling To The Sky" (Blowing Up *The Box*)

    It’s a rare occurrence that a film is able to create a world that’s so vivid and raw that I’m sucked in and totally immersed in the world the characters live in, experiencing every moment as if I really am right there with them; So immersed that when the film ends, it’s only then that I realize how ...

    Urbanworld 2011 Review - Andrew Dosunmu's Enchanting "Restless City"

    I challenge any film lover to watch Andrew Dosunmu's stylized feature-film debut, Restless City, and not be captivated by Bradford Young's hypnotic cinematography. Even the filmmaker himself has repeatedly tipped his hat to Young's efforts (he also shot Pariah by the way), helping (along with Dosunm...

    Review: Gus Van Sant's 'Restless' A Sappy Misfire From A Director Capable Of So Much More

    Gus Van Sant has long been fascinated by young people – the way they interact with each other, the way they move, the way they emote, and, most importantly, the way they die (or at the very least face their mortality head-on – you could even lump his interesting, if aimless, "Psycho" remake in there). But he's never dared to make a movie as self-indulgent, pointless, mushy, and boring as "Restless," one that borrows heavily from movies much better than it ("Harold & Maude," "Love Story," "An American Werewolf in London," countless French New Wave flicks), and fails to leave even the slightest impression, beyond the thought of never, ever, eve...

    Review: 'Lion King 3D' Maintains All of the Majesty of the Original, With Added Dimensional Sparkle

    A few years ago, Disney planned a theatrical release for a 3D version of "Beauty & the Beast," using the cutting edge, post-"Avatar" technology that we've all come to know so well (and sometimes dread just as much). The conversion took place, at great expense, but the theatrical engagement (originally set for February, 2010) never materialized. Still, the studio pressed ahead (Walt always said that good ideas never die), and this week the studio's traditionally animated crown jewel "The Lion King," in a shiny new 3D format, will get a proper release – in 2,000 3D screens across the country. But what does a 3D version of a traditionally animat...
