    NYAFF Reviews: 'Warriors of The Rainbow: Seediq Bale,' 'Monsters Club' & 'Nasi Lemak 2.0'

    Earlier this year, audiences experienced “Warriors Of The Rainbow: Seediq Bale,” a pulse-pounding, action-heavy epic that told the story of tensions between rural Taiwanese and invading Japanese soldiers. What some audience members didn’t know is that the two-and-a-half hour epic wasn’t even close t...

    New York Asian Film Festival Reviews: 'Couples,' 'You Are The Apple Of My Eye,' and 'Honey Pupu'

    Based on the 2005 Japanese hit “A Stranger of Mine” (directed by Kenji Uchida), “Couples” is kind of like those Rube Goldberg sequences from Jean-Pierre Jeunet (or maybe the “how Cate Blanchett got injured” sequence from “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), except for an entire feature-length run...

    'Savages': Oliver Stone Collides with the World of 'Breaking Bad'

    Savages begins with an image of severed heads, and like so many Oliver Stone films, the story sounds as if it has substance beneath all its violence. A Mexican drug cartel  has sent this head-rolling video as a warning to a trio of beautiful young things living in idyllic Laguna Beach: And...

    Savages—movie review

    It isn’t a requirement that you like a movie’s central characters, but it usually helps develop rooting interest. That’s one reason Savages comes up short: it’s difficult to care about anyone. If director and co-writer Oliver Stone had told the story more compactly, or not en...

    The Magic Of Belle Isle—movie review

    Morgan Freeman’s presence generally makes any film worth seeing, and this is no exception. The fact that The Magic of Belle Isle also offers a benign, family-friendly alternative to harsher summer fare is icing on the cake.

    New York Asian Film Fest Reviews: 'Vulgaria,' 'The King Of Pigs' & 'Dead Bite'

    Usually the New York Asian Film Festival opens with a film that carries name recognition in the West, either by those involved, or by a familiar genre or trope. In the case of this year’s opener, “Vulgaria,” it’s an increasingly familiar genre, that being the hyper-indulgent, semi-improvisational, l...
