    Headhunters—movie review

    I can’t remember the last time a movie surprised me as much as 'Headhunters': not just its story twists and turns, which are considerable, but its continual stripping of character veneer and overall audaciousness left me breathless.

    If I were to sum up my feelings about this film in two words, they would be “grimly fascinating.” Bullhead is the dark horse in this year’s Oscar race for Best Foreign Language Film, a sleeper from Belgium that has won acclaim around the world. Part of the response comes from the e...

    In Darkness—movie review

    The latest in a long line of incredible-but-true stories from World War II turns out to be one of the best. In Darkness dramatizes the saga of a group of Jewish men, women and children who paid a sewer worker in the city of Lvov to hide them underground, little dreaming that they would spend more th...
