    REVIEW | "The Troll Hunter" is a Monster of a Mock Doc

    Riffing on the DIY monster-movie approach of "Cloverfield" and the absurd supernatural premise of "Ghostbusters," Norwegian mockumentary "The Troll Hunter" offers high-caliber entertainment despite a low-budget production. The shaky camera suggests "The Blair Witch Project," but writer-director Andr...

    movie review: X-Men: First Class

    It’s risky to reinvent an established series with a new cast and a different setting than fans are accustomed to…but the folks at Marvel have gambled and won. Despite its flaws, X-Men: First Class is an effective reboot of the once-solid series that debuted eleven years ago.

    movie review: Submarine

    We’ve all seen coming-of-age stories—plenty of them—so when a new one comes along that seems fresh and novel, that’s reason to cheer. The new British import Submarine is just such a film, based on a prize-winning novel by Joe Dunthorne about a precocious boy growing up in ...

    movie review: Rejoice And Shout

    What I don’t know about gospel music could fill a library, but I’m willing to learn, and the lively documentary called Rejoice and Shout is a perfect tutorial. What’s more,

    movie review: Cameraman: The Life And Work Of Jack Cardiff

    After years of DVD special features, even dedicated buffs may be somewhat blasé about a film that takes us behind the scenes to explore one man’s career…but this is no ordinary documentary, and its subject is no ordinary filmmaker. Jack Cardiff was a remarkable artist who...

    REVIEW | "Film Socialism" Reminds Us Why Godard Still Matters

    Jean-Luc Godard's entire career can seem like an endless attempt to top himself. "Film Socialism," which finally receives a U.S. theatrical release this week, has much in common with the 80-year-old French director's other essay films, including the sprawling "Histoire(s) du cinéma" and "Notre Musiq...

    REVIEW | A Gay Dad and a Mid-Life Crisis: Mike Mills's "Beginners"

    The delicate blend of playful drama in "Beginners," the second narrative feature by California-based filmmaker and graphic designer Mike Mills ("Thumbsucker"), is a small wonder to behold. Mills fashions the set-up for an overwrought, thoroughly depressing character study into an oddly charming come...

    REVIEW | "Submarine" Does "Bridesmaids" One Better, With Style to Spare

    In "Submarine," the directorial debut of British comedian Richard Ayoade, newcomer Craig Roberts turns intense discomfort into fine art. Playing the 15-year-old Oliver Tate, Roberts holds his deer-caught-in-headlights stare from start to finish. Equally intent on landing a girlfriend and saving his ...

    Critical Consensus: "Submarine" Leads Strong Batch of Indie Openers (Not To Mention "X-Men")

    After two consecutive weekends of some of Cannes 2011's biggest guns debuting Stateside as essentially the sole specialty options (Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" and Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life"), the indie release calendar gets quite a bit more expansive this weekend. With three releases...
