    Review: Nerd Dramedy 'Zero Charisma' Lives Up To Its Title

    Well, thank God for accurate titles. “Zero Charisma” takes the viewer into the world of hardcore roleplaying games, this one ruled over by a behemoth named Scott (Sam Eidson). A twentysomething living with his grandmother and barely earning a living wage at a local donut shop, nothing much seems to ...

    Review: Mischa Barton's Romantic Thriller 'I Will Follow You Into The Dark' Is Neither Romantic Or Thrilling

    “I Will Follow You Into the Dark” heralds an interesting change in bad movie titling.

    Review: Kill Your Darlings

    Icons turned mortals is a premise often attempted when aiming to deliver a humanized version of figures otherwise revered without any context of what experiences or lack of, shaped them into the idol they'd become. For a film that compiles a period of time in the lives of the most iconic ...

    Attention Aspiring Film Critics: Indiewire Could Send You to the Sundance Film Festival Next Year

    At Indiewire, we have long believed that claims of film criticism being a profession in decline were misguided. While certainly not the easiest job market (has it ever been?), the desire among young critics to follow their passion hasn't waned.
