    Venice Review: ‘Cymbeline’ Starring Ethan Hawke, Dakota Johnson, Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Penn Badgley & Anton Yelchin

    A hamfisted attempt to breathe some relevance into one of Shakespeare’s more unfashionable plays, Michael Almereyda’s “Cymbeline” works best as a cautionary tale about the dangers accepting that everything written by The Bard is “timeless.” Laboring under the misconception that the problem with the ...

    Review: 'No No: A Dockumentary' A Joyful Look At One Of Baseball's Most Legendary Players

    On June 12th, 1970, a pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates named Dock Ellis, known for his oversized personality on and off the diamond, threw a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres. A no-hitter is defined by a team not being able to earn a single hit and it’s a pretty phenomenal feat, with only 282...

    Venice Reviews: Akin’s 'The Cut' Stars Rahim, Costanza’s 'Hungry Hearts' Stars Driver

    “The Cut” is Fatih Akin’s reach for the big time, and sad to say he comes up short. The popular German-Turkish director has made a lot of different kinds of films, from inter-cultural dramas (“Head On”) and comedies (“Soul Kitchen”), to romantic comedy/road-trips (“In July”) and documentaries (“Cros...

    Reese Witherspoon Wows in 'Wild': First Reviews

    The rest of the movie, based on Cheryl Strayed's harrowing memoir? Maybe less "Wow," more "Ow."

    Telluride Review: ‘Madame Bovary’ Starring Mia Wasikowska, Ezra Miller, Paul Giamatti & Rhys Ifans

    It is not prerequisite that the period costume drama needs a hook, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Joe Wright’s stylish “Anna Karenina” dazzled with a theatrical approach, and Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights” employed an austere commitment to form coupled with an expressively Malick-ian appreciati...

    'The Look of Silence' Reviews: A Worthy Companion to 'The Act of Killing,' or 'The Best Nonfiction Film Ever Made'?

    Joshua Oppenheimer's follow-up to his 2012 gut-wrencher is more conventional but equally harrowing.

    Telluride Review: Ophir Award Nominee 'Dancing Arabs'

    "Dancing Arabs" indulges in a peculiar kind of late ‘80s/early ‘90s nostalgia: a fond wistfulness for a time in the Middle East when Jews and Arabs mostly despised each other, but actual casualties from terrorism or reprisals were few… friendships across the racial/religious divide were more common…...

    Telluride Review: Nick Broomfield's 'Tales Of The Grim Sleeper'

    Nick Broomfield’s new documentary is a little bit "Dateline," a little bit Ferguson. "Tales of the Grim Sleeper" offers up the identity of the titular serial killer in the opening minutes, but it still revolves around a whodunit. Or, really, a who-didn’t-do-anything, since the movie’s central myster...

    Venice Review: Roy Andersson's 'A Pigeon Sat On A Branch Reflecting On Existence'

    Unlike stupid real Christmas, cinephile Christmas only comes every eight years or so. That’s how long it's taken Swedish legend Roy Andersson to mount each of the films in his “trilogy about being a human being.” This morning in Venice, however, when we checked under the tree, there it was: the fina...
