    Critical Consensus: "Another Earth" Edges "American Sleepover" For Pick of The Week

    In a tight race for the top rated film on criticWIRE, Mike Cahill's "Another Earth" edged out David Robert Mitchell's "The Myth of the American Sleepover" as the "pick of the week." "Earth" - a sci-fi drama being released this Friday via Fox Searchlight - was written by Cahill and Brit Marling, who is also the film's star and generally regarded as one of 2011's big indie breakouts. Marling plays Rhoda, a twenty-something on the brink of getting accepted to MIT. Just as she overhears on her car radio that a new planet has appeared in the sky, she inadvertently crashes into a van and kills two-thirds of the family on board. Cut to four years ...

    REVIEW | "The Myth of the American Sleepover" Turns John Hughes Inside Out

In the case of David Robert Mitchell's enjoyably peculiar ensemble piece, "The Myth of the American Sleepover," the Hughes comparison requires more complex modifiers. Entertainment Weekly's Grady Smith wrote ...

    REVIEW | Metaphysical Sci-Fi "Another Earth" Offers Promising Debuts

    First-time director Mike Cahill's "Another Earth" suggests Andrei Tarkovsky's "Solaris" by way of Aaron Katz. That unlikely combination speaks to the movie's unconventional mix of heady conceits and intimate conversations. A visually inspired fantasy mainly revolving around the doomed romance of two...

    Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part Two

    I wouldn’t call myself a Potterhead, but I have certainly enjoyed following the odyssey of Harry Potter and company over the past decade. Nothing can compare to the experience of reading J.K. Rowling’s books, which have been expertly condensed and interpreted by screenwriter Stev...

    Winnie The Pooh

    In an era of hyperactive, overly verbal 3-D animated entertainment, I hope there is still room for a film as sweet and gentle as Winnie the Pooh. At the screening I attended it seemed like the young adults in the audience were enjoying it even more than the kids, reliving their childhood mem...
