    The Grandmaster

    While I admired much of "The Grandmaster," I felt somewhat removed—not the first time I’ve responded that way to Wong Kar Wai’s pictures.

    Review: Tribeca & Berlin Award Winner & Film Festival Fave 'Una Noche'

    There’s a youthful energy running through “Una Noche” that threatens to overwhelm, from its sun-kissed first image to its final moments on the sands of the beach. Alive and vibrant, Lucy Mulloy’s often bawdy first feature is narrated by Lila, a blossoming teenage girl confused by her sexuality, alie...
