    Review: Leos Carax's 'Holy Motors' Is Bonkers

    The word ‘bonkers’ was used with abandon along the Croisette when it came to describing Leos Carax’s fifth film (his first full-length feature since 1999’s "Pola X") and "Holy Motors"’ reception at the critics’ screening and official Competition unveiling was so enthusiastic...

    Review: 'How Do You Write A Joe Schermann Song' A Rewarding, Crowd-Pleasing Indie Musical

    Discounting “The Muppets,” the movie musical has had a bit of a rough go as of late. Fans have a likely sumptuous, probably bloated "Les Misérables" to look forward to in December, a film that hopefully cleanses the palate of the disaster that was "Nine." Due to their grand scales and expensive pric...

    Critic's Notebook: How 'The Man With the Iron Fists' Proves We No Longer Need 'Star Wars'

    At a screening hosted by the Museum of the Moving Image Thursday, rapper-turned-filmmaker RZA claimed his first inspiration came not from the martial arts movie but from watching "Star Wars." "I believed there was a galaxy far, far away where I could go," he says. "But instead, I went to Brooklyn."

    DVD Review - HBO Latino's Brazilian Drama 'Filhos Do Carnaval' (2006)

    While it was still a pain in my backside, being stuck in the house during Hurricane Sandy did provide me with an opportunity to catch up on some long-overdue DVD viewing.  First up was the International Emmy-nominated TV series from Brazil, Filhos do Carnaval (Hijos del Carnaval), an HBO Latin ...

    Can Denzel Washington Save Zemeckis' Bogus 'Flight'?

    From the vapid, saccharine Forrest Gump to the overwrought, improbable Flight, Robert Zemeckis has remained a master of manipulation. That Oscar for Gump? Flight’s closing night slot at this year’s New York Film Festival? Forget them and look at the films: emotionally pandering and ...

    AFI Fest Review: ‘Hitchcock’ A Breezy, Disposable Effort Saved By Anthony Hopkins & Helen Mirren’s Dedicated Performances

    Hypnotic, beautiful, and perilous in equal measure – one needn’t glance anywhere else but at the leading ladies of Alfred Hitchcock’s films to garner their intense influence, yet as dramatized in “Anvil!” director Sacha Gervasi’s loving biopic, “Hitchcock,” the real authority lingered off the set at...

    Wreck-It Ralph

    I’m always rooting for a new Disney animated feature, and 'Wreck-It Ralph' gave me a lot to cheer for: a fresh concept and clever execution to match it. Animation veteran (but studio newcomer) Rich Moore has directed this feature with a sharp eye, but winning over both hearts and minds is a tall ord...
