    REVIEW | "Texas Killing Fields" Is Directed By Michael Mann's Daughter, and Looks Like It

    It might be unfair to read an artist's work on the basis of her lineage, but Ami Canaan Mann is asking for it. Her sophomore effort, "Texas Killing Fields," lives and breathes the hard-crime oxygen of the movies commonly associated with her father, Michael Mann. The younger Mann goes through the mot...

    Despite finding a mixed response since debuting at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Pedro Almodovar's latest, "The Skin I Live In" is the pick of a rather weak week for opening specialty films according to the folks polled on criticWIRE.

    REVIEW | "Bombay Beach" Explores Dreams and Isolation By the Sea

    The beautiful desolation of "Bombay Beach" makes it difficult to describe as a documentary. Alma Har'el's directorial debut takes a nonfiction setting and displays its haunting qualities in poetic terms.

    "There are some situations that leave you utterly speechless," says one of the committed performers in Wim Wenders' fine 3-D dance movie "Pina," screening this week at the New York Film Festival. But that assertion could just as easily apply to the other 3-D event at this year's festival, the transc...
