    REVIEW | Life on the Stage: Richard Linklater's "Me and Orson Welles"

    Like so many of Richard Linklater's films, his latest, "Me and Orson Welles," follows an ad hoc group working together towards an unlikely, and very impending, goal.

    REVIEW | A Long and Dreary Path: John Hillcoat's "The Road"

    With its drearily brief paragraphs and poetic emphasis on imagery over dialogue, Cormac McCarthy's 2006 post-apocalyptic novel "The Road" practically reads like a screenplay. Not unreasonably, John Hillcoat's tense, discomfiting big screen adaptation remains almost entirely faithful to the book's di...

    REVIEW | Wright and Wrong: Rebecca Miller's "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee"

    One of contemporary cinema's most graceful, taken-for-granted actors, Robin Wright, too long in the shadow of her ex-husband, would seemingly have finally found the perfect leading role in Rebecca Miller's "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee," in which she plays a graceful, taken-for-granted wife and mo...

    REVIEW | Distant Voices, Shrill Lives: Lukas Moodysson's "Mammoth"

    Much can be said about the concept and implications of globalization. That it's good for corporations, indifferent to local economies and cultures, rough on the working class. Here's another: globalization inspires very bad art. Besides Jia Zhangke and Olivier Assayas, who understand commercial exch...
