    Tower Heist Review

    I’ve seen great caper movies, and this isn’t one of them. As mainstream Hollywood studio movies go, Tower Heist isn’t bad, and it will probably fulfill most audience’s desire for escapist fare. But despite some good laughs here and there and a couple of neat plot twists, it&r...

    DOC NYC '11 Review: 'Scenes Of A Crime' Is A Riveting, True-Crime Documentary Worthy Of Errol Morris

    When the West Memphis Three were freed just a wee bit before Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's third film about their plight ("Paradise Lost 3") was about to hit the festival circuit, people were again reminded of the brass strength of cinema. After the first of the trilogy was aired ...

    Review: 'J. Edgar' Presents A Highly Controversial Figure With Dry Objectivity & Dramatic Inertia

    An exercise of stultifying blandness and dramatic inertia, “J. Edgar” is second- or third-tier Eastwood, the sort of respectably proficient but forgettable work that he did all too often before “Million Dollar Baby” reminded audiences that one of Hollywood’s oldest dogs...

    Sick of spiritualists charging an arm and a leg just to spout incredibly vague musings designed to help you? Think they're all a bunch of scammers taking advantage of those who actually need real assistance? If so, you're in luck, because Vikram Gandhi is on your wavelength. This filmmaker has made a documentary not unlike "Borat" in which he pretends to be a native Indian guru (code name: Kumare), creating his own philosophy and gathering very dedicated followers. Unlike the Kazakh, the director will reveal himself to his peons at the end in an effort to prove that whatever change occurred was because of them and not h...
