    Review: 'The Day' Presents Post-Apocalypse From The A La Carte Menu

    "The Day" runs about eighty-seven minutes in length. It features a number of recognizable actors. There's violence at the beginning, middle and end, and many characters die, mostly with an explosion of blood. The story takes place over the course of one day, and though the image is saturated, we see...

    Does Mads Brugger's Satiric 'The Ambassador' Go Too Far?

    At the beginning of "The Red Chapel," the 2010 exposé of North Korean society directed by Danish comedian Mads Brügger, the filmmaker establishes his ruse from the outset, swiftly enunciating his intention to satirize the country's oppressive extremes by pretending to embra...

    Books continue coming in at a faster pace than I can possibly keep up with and it’s been a while since I did a survey. Here are some of the recent titles that pique my interest.

    Review: 'The Apparition' Is A Hauntingly Inept Chiller

    In "The Apparition," a profoundly dull and uninteresting horror movie from the usually above-average Joel Silver genre machine Dark Castle (home to things like the crucially underrated "House of Wax" remake and the splatter-fu oddity "Ninja Assassin"), a group of smart aleck grad students unwittingl...

    Premium Rush—movie review

    I don’t know how a film this entertaining and expertly-made can show up the last week of summer, but I’m not complaining.

    Robot & Frank—movie review

    Frank Langella’s presence would be enough to pique my interest in any film. 'Robot & Frank' offers him a modest starring vehicle with a science-fiction spin, and the result is one of the most enjoyable indie films of the year.

    Consider this a weekend to indulge at the movies. The 70mm documentary "Samsara" is a gorgeous, spiritually rich experience to let wash over you, while "Wild Horse, Wild Ride" examines the equine-and-man relationship and delivers a moving result akin to last year's "Buck...
