    Review: Dutch Crime Thriller 'Black Out' For People Who Liked 'The Hangover III' But Wish It Had More Ultraviolence

    Are we destined to keep making copies of copies of copies? And is this always going to make us all feel old? The knee-jerk temptation is to react to Arne Toonen’s “Black Out” in much the same way naysayers treated Guy Ritchie’s crime pictures of the late nineties for jacking an aesthetic (specifical...

    Review: 2014 Best Foreign Film Oscar Nominee 'Omar'

    The title character of Hany Abu-Assad’s “Omar” is played by Adam Bakri. Fair-skinned, with a slight overbite and an easy smile spread over a skinny face, he’s a likable onscreen presence, and when he makes doe eyes at coquettish Nadja (Leem Lubany), you see the blossoming of true love.

    REVIEW: Two 1960s Animated Classics on Blu-ray

    Walt Disney and The Beatles, as cultural icons, seem at first to be as distant as the Arctic and Antarctic. In reality, the two are more intertwined than one might have thought, certainly as creative visionaries. Most notably, each entity released major animated features within one year of each othe...

    Review: Unexceptional And Thoroughly Decent 'In Secret' Starring Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac & Jessica Lange
