    TIFF Review: Jay Z and Ron Howard's 'Made in America' (TRAILER)

    There’s an enormous amount of what one might charitably refer to as self-affirmation expressed by the featured performers in “Made in America,” Ron Howard’s collaboration with Jay Z and an account of the Brooklyn rapper-mogul’s first-annual "Made in America" music festival.

    TIFF Review: ‘Rush’ Starring Chris Hemsworth & Daniel Brühl Finds Ron Howard In Top Gear

    It's only "rebels, lunatics and dreamers" that decide to get behind the wheel and race for a living, so quips Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) in the early moments of Ron Howard's "Rush," and there's an undeniable logic to his observation. For who else would willingly strap themselves into ...

    Review: Lynn Shelton's 'Touchy Feely' Starring Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page & Josh Pais

    There's a strange and opaque energy coursing through the veins of Lynn Shelton's languid fifth feature-length effort, "Touchy Feely." It's a little mysterious, to the film’s moody credit, and it’s a little unavailable and removed, to its detriment. Lead actress Rosemarie DeWitt admitted, "I didn't r...

    TIFF Review: 'The Lunchbox' A Charming, Moving Cinematic Takeout Treat

    The staple of any good rom-com is an original, clever meet-cute, and writer/director Ritesh Batra certainly has a good one for his feature debut "The Lunchbox." The missed connection in this picture that winds up bringing two strangers into each other's orbit is a mix-up involving the delivery of th...

    Venice Review: Frederick Wiseman's Epic College-Set Documentary 'At Berkeley'

    Over the years, veteran documentarian Frederick Wiseman has covered what sometimes feels like almost kind of institution and every aspect of life in America (and occasionally, life abroad too). "Titicut Follies," "Juvenile Court," "Zoo," "Racetrack," "Central Park," "Public Housing," "Boxing Gym," a...

    Does Benedict Cumberbatch Do Justice to Julian Assange? Here's What the Critics Are Saying

    While most critics were underwhelmed by the Toronto International Film Festival's opening night selection, Bill Condon's WikiLeaks thriller "The Firth Estate," they all sang praises of the film's lead star Benedict Cumberbatch, who portrays WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in the DreamWorks release.

    Venice Review: Tsai Ming-Liang's 'Stray Dogs'

    In a festival that's seen a number of endurance tests—Philip Groning's three-hour, 59-chapter "The Police Officer's Wife," the abstracted imagery of "Under The Skin," the brief but unrelentingly terrible duration of "Parkland," no film seemed to inspire more walk outs than "Stray Dogs." The return o...

    TIFF 2013 Review: Judy Kibinge's 'Something Necessary'

    In 2007, ethnic and political tensions in Kenya came to a head when public election votes believed to be rigged incited rioting and chaos that resulted in the deaths of over a thousand people and the displacement of even more. So often, when we hear about African stories either in cinema or on the ...

    Review: 'Adore' Starring Robin Wright, Naomi Watts and Ben Mendelsohn

    We’ll be honest from sentence one. “Adore” hits two spots we love: movies for adults and (not-dumb) movies for and about women. We have our brief affairs with explosions, spit-take-inducing dialogue and car chases, but we have a long-term relationship with movies that are quiet and mature. They get ...
