    movie review: The Princess Of Montpensier

Bertrand Tavernier has said that with this film his goal was to make a tale of 16th century France seem so vivid and immediate that there would be no distance between the viewer and the characters on screen. That’s no small feat, but he ...

    REVIEW | Living in the Present: "The Imperialists are Still Alive"

    Records of post-9/11 Middle Eastern life have been virtually absent in Western cinema for obvious, if deplorable, reasons. Zeina Durra mercifully comes to the rescue with a sharp contemporary yarn sporting an appropriately alarming title: "The Imperialists Are Still Alive!" The first-time director's...

    REVIEW | "The Double Hour" and the Twist Ending Twitter Can't Kill

    Movies have always played with audience expectations. Louis Lumiére's 1895 short "Tables Turned on the Gardener" concludes its one-minute length with a timeless sight gag. A few decades later, "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari" pioneered the movie twist by revealing that the majority of its narrative ...

    Review: The 'Little White Lies' That Bind Are Explored In This Leisurely Gallic Dramedy

    The nature of what keeps a long-term friendship together over the years is somewhat ephemeral. There is the trust and confidence that comes with knowing someone intimately, seeing them at their best and worst, and being there for them without judgment. But it's also built on shared values, small moments and significant times shared, building a collective history that binds dates and places with deep emotional resonance. But, everyone also has their secrets, and even the best of friends will often keep their own fears or secret desires to themselves, not only for the sake of a friendship but for their own private reasons as well. Now...

    REVIEW | Cannes Jury Prize-Winner "A Screaming Man" is Divine

    "A Screaming Man," Mahamat-Saleh Haroun's tale of an aging father at war with his son, also invokes the political realities of Chad, a country overrun by civil war. However, the movie delivers its strongest impact when it keeps things simple.

    REVIEW | Redford's "The Conspirator" Can't Do the Lincoln Legacy Proud

    Why does the dramatic power of Abraham Lincoln's assassination elude so many filmmakers? No less than D.W. Griffith tried it twice: Both "Birth of a Nation" and "Abraham Lincoln" portrayed the event with decent build-up but very little payoff. A long-gestating adaptation of James L. Swanson's "Manhu...
