    film review: Let Me In

    Let Me In offers an unusual twist on the usual vampire tale. It’s gripping and unusual—unless you happen to have seen the Swedish film that inspired it, Let the Right One In, based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist. If you did catch that striking Swedish import two years ago, ther...

    Favored By the Right Folks: Post-Cannes, "Bedevilled" Finds an Audience at Fantastic Fest

    When Jang Cheol-so's Korean revenge drama "Bedevilled" premiered at Cannes, critics had a tough time figuring out if they liked it. As the portrait of a damaged woman whose life consists of an abusive marriage and little else, it spends nearly an hour lingering in her depressing existence before sud...

    Feuds and Film: Midway Through Fantastic Fest, the Punches Fly

    The 2010 edition of Fantastic Fest has no greater defining image than that of festival founder and Alamo Drafthouse owner Tim League, decked out in a pink mohawk, dodging punches from a sprightly Michelle Rodriguez. The farcical duel marked the climax of "The Fantastic Debates," an annual tradition ...

    Review | Taming the Man-Child: "Barry Munday"

    The story of an aging man-child has been told and retold so many times that it has evolved into a kind of narrative ritual. Witness the phenomena of Seth Rogen and his ilk, a brand exclusively defined for their dopey charm in the face of adult responsibilities, or the series of stubborn lackadaisica...

    Review | Movies Within a Movie: The Anthology Documentary "Freakonomics"

    Equal parts journalistic exposé and targeted anthropological dissection, the slick anthology production "Freakonomics" makes heavy ideas go down easy. That's the point, of course: Based on Steven Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner's bestselling 2005 tome, the movie explores "the hidden side of everything"...

    Fantastic Fest | Unfunny Games: Miguel Angel Vivas's "Kidnapped"

    The first shot of "Kidnapped" (Secuestrados) shows an anonymous man struggling to breathe inside the plastic bag crudely wrapped around his head. It's no stretch to view this harrowing close-up as a physical representation of the impressively nerve-wracking experience that follows. Spanish director ...

    film review—Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

    I’m not a fan of sequels, by and large, but I suppose events of the past few years made it inevitable that someone would devise a followup to Oliver Stone’s Wall Street, which became a touchstone of its era. The new movie isn’t likely to have the same effect, as so many document...
