    Review - "The Art Of Rap" (An Unfocused Ode To A Music That Inspired Generations)

    In an interview posted on this site about 6 months ago, Ice-T said of his directorial debut, Something For Nothing - The Art Of Rap, that his intent with the film was to document the craft of rapping, and not all the crass excesses the music has become emblematic of. His goal, as he stated, was...

    Review: 'The Girl From The Naked Eye' Strictly For Lovers Of Z-Grade Noir

    In the early days of noir filmmaking, even when a book was the source of the story, the films were made with a genuine sense of danger. Noir was still a new genre, and we didn’t exactly know the rules quite yet. That led to filmmakers essentially writing, shooting and performing what they knew, from...

    'Your Sister's Sister': Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass In The Week's Best New Film

    Since I saw Your Sister’s Sister at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, Lynn Sheldon’s lovely, witty romantic comedy about a totally unlikely love triangle -- try this: a girl and her dead ex-boyfriend’s brother and her lesbian sister – has only come to seem more i...

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'To Rome With Love' Is Another Minor Foreign Postcard From Woody Allen

    In the recent PBS "American Masters" portrait of Woody Allen by director Robert Weide, Allen describes how he has a file folder filled with hundreds of loglines for movies he has come up with over the years; after completing each film, he sorts through them, finds one that speaks to him at the time ...

    Your Sister’s Sister—movie review

    If you appreciate small-scale films that favor character development over plot, you’re the target demographic for this likable—and, speaking honestly, forgettable—three-character piece from filmmaker Lynn Shelton (Humpday) and three talented actors, Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt, and the man of the ...

    Weekend Preview: Must-Sees Are Shelton's 'Your Sister's Sister' & Art Doc 'Marina Abramovic'

    We'll waste no time on "Rock of Ages" (47% rotten) and "That's My Boy" (14% rotten), focusing instead on the two best films opening this weekend. Contrary to its tepid banner ads, Lynn Shelton's "Your Sister's Sister" is refreshingly simple and authentic...

    Review: 'Extraterrestrial' Is A Charming & Ambitious Sci-Fi Rom Com

    In 2007 Nacho Vigalondo wrote, directed, and co-starred in "Timecrimes," a loopy Spanish language time travel thriller that announced a bold new voice in science fiction filmmaking. Ingenious on an almost molecular level, the incredibly low budget feature combined traditional time travel concerns (i...

    Review: 'That's My Boy' Predictably Juvenile & Surprisingly Far Uglier Than The Usual Adam Sandler Offering

    Adam Sandler, comedian, A-List star, and leading man of this Friday’s “That’s My Boy,” is not an idiot. Dedicated to preserving his brand, his films have effectively raised a generation, from the sophomoric absurdity of “Billy Madison” to, uh, the sophomoric banality of “Grown Ups.” You can’t keep p...
