    Dakota Fanning will turn 13 next month, and she has a short answer for anyone who questions her decision to play a 1950s girl who gyrates in her underwear, wakes up as her naked father climbs into her bed, demands that a prepubescent boy expose himself to her in exchange for a kiss and, finally, is ...

    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | Lady Jaws: Mitchell Lichtenstein's "Teeth"

    During the course of its premiere Sundance screening, in countless psychiatrist offices everywhere, there are people describing their fear of vaginal dentata, the belief that women have sharp teeth lining their vagina. I can't say with certainty if anyone with that fear was sitting in the audience watching actor-turned-filmmaker Mitchell Lichtenstein's "Teeth," a silly, splatter movie about a teen girl with G Spot canines. But there were enough screams, as well as nervous laughs, to conclude that everyone has some queasiness when it comes to bodily fluids and orifices. If Lichtenstein's aim with his mixed-bag horror comedy was to bring the fe...

    PARK CITY '07 REVIEW | Weapons: Aiming for Oblivion

    A slow, hazy hip-hop trip through screwed-up young America, "Weapons" is the anti-"Boyz n the Hood."

    The talking heads in some documentaries at the Sundance Film Festival are not just real people recollecting real events. Some are actors, recruited by the directors to help put human faces and voices to events lost in time, for which the filmmakers would have had to rely on static old photographs or...
