    TRIBECA REVIEW | Colombian Squalor: "The Two Escobars"

    The history of Colombia's tattered international reputation is not an unexplored field, but Jeff and Michael Zimbalist's Tribeca Film Festival world premiere documentary "The Two Escobars," provides an original strategy for framing it. A study in contrasts, the movie oscillates between two men with ...

    REVIEW | Sensational Metaphor: Tom Six's "The Human Centipede (First Sequence)"

    Easy to deride, and easier to dismiss, "The Human Centipede (First Sequence)" nonetheless works as a calculated provocation. Demented in premise and execution, Dutch filmmaker Tom Six's grotesque exercise in shock cinema has enough competence on its own terms to allow for a deeper reading. Put blunt...

    Big Screen | "Weird" Korean Western is New Critic's Pick

    Perhaps bracing for the upcoming summer season, it's a somewhat slower weekend at the movies on the specialty front (though there should be a significant amount of holdover business). Openers include Kim Ji-woon's Korean Western "The Good, The Bad, The Weird," Michele Mulroney & Kieran Mulroney's R...

    film review: Catching Up With Movies, Both New...

    This is superior storytelling, with a definite point of view; there’s clearly a masterful hand at work behind the camera. And nobody portrays dread, or a sense of unease, quite like Polanski.

    iW Review | An Urban Mystery: Banksy's "Exit Through the Gift Shop"

    From the moment elusive street artist Banksy appears on camera in "Exit Through the Gift Shop," something seems fishy. With his face obscured by shadows and his real voice rendered unrecognizable by mechanical distortion, Banksy remains the mysterious figure he has always been. In "Exit," the contex...

    Big Screen | Anti-Date Movie "Everyone Else" Opens To Raves

    "If there’s one movie this spring that you shouldn’t see with a date, it’s 'Everyone Else,'" Anthony Lane wrote this week in his New Yorker review of the new film, "unless you are looking for a quick, low-budget way to break up."

    REVIEW | Film Noir Footwork: Nash Edgerton's "The Square"

    The title of Nash Edgerton's "The Square" could easily refer to the neatly packaged category of film noir in which it exists. The Australian director's first feature involves a pair of star-crossed suburban adulterers whose background scheming is doomed to fail, and from the opening minutes, the ent...
