    After months of scarce offerings of critically acclaimed films, June has certainly proved 2010's MVP. From "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" to "Cyrus" to "I Am Love" to "Winter's Bone," arthouses have been packed with critic-approved fare (and in turn, they've also been packed with audiences). And co...

    The Scream: Adam Nayman on "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"

    When I was nine or ten years old, I was allowed to rent two movies a week from the public library around the corner from our house; one fateful weekend, I selected Philip Kaufman's 1978 remake of Don Siegel's 1956 chiller Invasion of the Body Snatchers, based largely on the cover art, which showed f...

    film review: Knight And Day

    It irks me that this film has been the subject of so much snarky speculation.
