    SXSW Review: Documentary 'Above All Else' Obscured By Narrow Focus

    In the interest of full disclosure, I'm firmly against the Keystone XL pipeline that will start in Canada and cut through the United States to the Gulf Coast. If it goes through, I think it's an environmental disaster waiting to happen, with an economic boost that would temporarily benefit the avera...

    We're not sure there's been a figure in the history of television quite like Dan Harmon. The "Community" creator has, over the past few years, become the first celebrity showrunner, a writer as well-known as any of his creations, and whose fiiter-free, headline-grabbing antics, and rise-and-fall-and...

    The retro-kitsch appeal inherent to “Space Station 76” is palpable from its star-gazing opening credits, rendered as they are in Gill Sans font (think “2001: A Space Odyssey”) with state-of-the-art CGI effects modeled on the miniature work of yesteryear. What follows is a sci-fi soap opera seemingly...

But Woody Allen managed unlikable characters for years, Noah Baumbach has successfully taken that mantle, Alex Ross Perry does a w...
