    Review: 'The Fifth Estate' Starring Benedict Cumberbatch Lacks Courage & Conviction

    It's hard to argue that Julian Assange is one of the most powerful and polarizing figures of our current times. From childhood pranks hacking NASA and National Defense computer systems to exposing the dirty laundry of banks and governments around the world, he has become a hero to those seeking tran...

    Review: 12 Years a Slave

    Healing is a process more viable for the physical body than for the always-restless memory. Scars and wounds vanish into the past to be replaced by new skin, yet always leaving a mark. As minimal as that trace may be it becomes a permanent record of the pain endured. The size is correlate...

    12 Years A Slave

    The gifted Chiwitel Ejiofor is a perfect choice to play the confident Northerner whose freedom and dignity are cruelly stripped away when he is sold into slavery in the 1840s.

    Bloodworth Thomason's film is effective because it tells one couple’s story and allows it to implicitly represent thousands of others.

    The bullet points of WikiLeaks’ rise and fall are dutifully covered, but the movie bites off more than it can chew.

    Usually, movies derived from current or recent events take one of two courses: to reveal, or speculate about, the background story we don’t know, or to provide insight into the actions of familiar real-life figures. Writer Peter Morgan is particularly adept at this, as he has shown in such scree...

    Review: Steve McQueen's '12 Years A Slave' Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender & More

    Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” instantly establishes itself as the most unflinching of all slave dramas, which is to say, there is plenty of flinching, not to mention cowering and recoiling and passing out, thanks to beatings and whippings that arrive at roughly 10-to-15-minute intervals through...

    Review: Diablo Cody's Insipid & Cloying Directorial Debut 'Paradise'

    ​The prestigious fall film festival, in which anyone who remotely mattered in cinema (or Hollywood), trotted about their latest vehicle.
