    Berlin Reviews: 'Butter On The Latch,' ‘The Third Side Of The River,’ ’El Somni’ & ‘The Midnight After’

    Indie filmmaker Josephine Decker pulled off one of the major coups of the Berlin Film Festival—a “Double Decker.” A cute phrase to communicate the fact that she had her two debut films, “Thou Wast Mild and Lovely” and “Butter On the Latch,” both accepted and premiering at the Berlinale. It's certai...

    Berlin Reviews: ‘Two Men In Town,’ Blind Massage,’ ‘If You Don’t, I Will’ & ‘In Between Worlds’

    A remake of a 1973 French film starring Alain Delon and Jean Gabin, “Two Men In Town” is a sadly missed opportunity. It's a beautifully shot film (kudos to DP Yves Cape, who also served on “Holy Motors” and “White Material”), but one that, aside from some unusual casting decisions, brings nothing ne...

    Richard Linklater Discusses His 12-Year Project 'Boyhood,' Chronology, Memory & A Movie That Occurs Offscreen

    Richard Linklater is a lot like a Richard Linklater movie. There’s a looseness, and an approachability that is engaging (and made for an enjoyably chatty Berlin Film Festival interview), but it’s also somewhat deceptive of the deeper currents of thoughtfulness and a kind of philosophical curiosity, ...

    Berlin Review: ‘The Two Faces of January,’ Starring Oscar Isaac and Viggo Mortensen, Is Not Your Typical Patricia Highsmith Adaptation

    Patricia Highsmith's novels have provided fodder for more than two dozen film adaptations, a pantheon that now includes "The Two Faces of January." This 1964 suspense thriller has been memorably realized by writer-director Hossein Amini with an eye for film noir tropes. While it won't knock Anthony ...

    Berlin Review: Christopher Gans' 'Beauty and the Beast,' With Lea Seydoux and Vincent Cassel, Is a Fairy Tale Dud

    The recent spate of fairy tale movies from around the world has been, at best, a halfhearted effort. On the heels of "Red Riding Hood," "Snow White and the Huntsman," "Mirror, Mirror," "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," "Jack the Giant Slayer," the upcoming "Maleficent" and the television series "O...

    Berlin Review: The Imagination Is The Sense Most Sharpened In Witty, Weird, Beautiful Sundance Winner ‘Blind’

    There is something about the idea of using cinema, a visual medium, to explore the tragedy and terror of sudden blindness that makes Norwegian Eskil Vogt’s directorial debut “Blind” an intriguing prospect even on paper (Vogt previously collaborated as a writer with Joachim Trier). But it’s where he,...

    Berlin Review: Silver Bear Best Script Winner 'Stations of the Cross'

    “Kreuzweg (Stations of the Cross),” which won the Best Script Silver Bear at this year's now wrapped Berlinale, is a well-designed and constructed portrait of a young, devout Catholic girl trying to make her way through a maze of satanically influenced culture (i.e., normality) and sin (e.g., attrac...
