    SXSW Snapshot: Craig Johnson's "True Adolescents"

    With "True Adolescents," Mark Duplass stars in what must be the most conventional recent project on his resume. Putting on his best Jack Black impression, the "Puffy Chair" co-director (and "Humpday" star) plays moody, unkempt Seattle rock musician Sam, a crude character unable to pull his aimless l...

    SXSW Snapshot: What Zombies? Bruce McDonald's "Pontypool"

    I'm in the minority thinking that Bruce McDonald's "The Tracey Fragments" made for one of the niftiest avant-garde movie experiences of 2008, but McDonald doesn't try to please a large crowd, anyway. For years, the director has worked with complete autonomy, thriving off his community in Canada while still managing to attract stars to his projects. He does what he wants for whoever cares to pay attention. At the same time, there's generally something familiar about the genres McDonald chooses to play around with; he just tends to rejiggle the pieces, and boldly leave a few of them out of the picture.

    SXSW Snapshot: Joe Swanberg's "Alexander The Last"

    Joe Swanberg's earlier films reveled in aimlessness to achieve their thematic intentions. As characters hung out, had sex, and talked about the pithy details of their twentysomething lifestyles, Swanberg would gradually assemble portraits of relationships that naturally arose from the settings. That...

    Review Round Up: Critics Consider "Cleaning"

    "Following her beautifully impressionistic debut 'Rain' and the Gwyneth Paltrow vehicle 'Sylvia,' New Zealand director Christine Jeffs lands somewhere in between with 'Sunshine Cleaning,' an affecting, well-acted drama that casts an even brighter spotlight on rising starlet Amy Adams," indieWIRE's A...
