    From Berlin With Love: How Nick Hornby’s ‘A Long Way Down,’ Starring Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots, Rejects the Conventions of Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s Day is always a mixed proposition: a celebration for those in love or doom’s day for the lonely singletons desperate for companionship. At least, that’s what most romance films want us to believe — not to mention the lists. All sorts of lists: the top 10 romance films, the top 50 romance...

    A Valentine's Day Prank? Colin Farrell in 'Winter's Tale'

    A white winged horse soars across the New York skyline, reminding us of . . . the Tri-Star production logo? We aren't meant to be that distracted, but if a flying horse can't capture any magic you can imagine how thudding the rest of Winter's Tale is

    Hong Kong's densely populated metropolitan society is the on the verge of sliding into chaos, or at least that's the tantalizing possibility explored in wry allegorical terms by director Fruit Chan in his erratic but entertaining post-apocalyptic satire "The Midnight After."
