    Review: Amateur Action Thriller 'The Outsider' Starring Craig Fairbrass, James Caan And Jason Patric

    If you stick around in Hollywood long enough, keep in shape, log a solid amount of credits and act the part of a good soldier, maybe you, too, will receive your own starring vehicle. Of course, there’s no guarantee that vehicle will be in any way interesting, but consider it the show-business versio...

    Berlin Review: Forest Whitaker Impresses As Paroled Criminal In Uneven 'Two Men In Town,' A Remake At War With Itself

    French-Algerian director Rachid Bouchareb has lately alternated between sweeping historical dramas (the WWII drama "Days of Glory," the Algerian War portrait "Outside the Law") and sentimental two-handers with quieter approaches ("London River," "Just Like a Woman"). In all cases, however, Bouchareb...

    Review: Art World Comedy 'Art Machine' Starring Joseph Cross And Jessica Szohr

    How do movies feel about the art world again? It seems to always be adversarial, to a point at which the bougie industry of pastels and fancy grants is never less than alien to a filmgoers’ worldview. But if that were entirely the case, why would they make so many movies about it—movies where art al...

    Berlin Review: 'Full Metal Jacket' Meets 'High Noon' In Tense Wartime Action Drama ''71,' Starring Jack O'Connell

    A gritty, relentless wartime drama that blends its action set pieces with palpable despair and historical observation, "'71" maintains a polished intensity that fares well for first-time feature director Yann Demange.

    Berlin Review: '71' Starring Jack O’Connell An Outstanding, Bloody, Meditation On The Personal Cost Of Conflict

    While the odds of seeing two truly extraordinary, brutal but brilliant British films in as many weeks are fairly long, the chances of both films starring the same relative unknown, in two similarly impressive yet fundamentally different performances, must be exponentially smaller. But we should buy ...

    Review: Tyler Labine & Lucy Punch Energize Otherwise Uninspired 'Someone Marry Barry'

    To be fair, the sorta-raunchy rom-com "Someone Marry Barry" is shamelessly and unapologetically up front about how much it owes and rips off from the Judd Apatow oeuvre. And we're not just talking about the four-bros-with-women-and-life-problems premise. Whether it's nodding to the speed dating sequ...

    Review: Horror Comedy 'Fantastic Fear Of Everything' Starring Simon Pegg

    Simon Pegg has become something of a nerd world hero, thanks to his co-writing and starring role in the three Edgar Wright genre-send-ups that make up the loose Cornetto Trilogy, and his supporting performances in big time Hollywood franchises "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible" (both overseen by ...
