    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 ...

    Review: 'Captain Phillips,' Starring Tom Hanks And Directed By Paul Greengrass, Is a Proficient Thriller With a Sly Political Agenda

    The saga of Captain Richard Phillips, the Massachusetts seafarer kidnapped by four Somali pirates during a routine cargo ship gig in 2009, taking place under media scrutiny, played out like a high seas suspense movie unfolding in real time. Plans for a feature-length adaptation were inevitable as so...

    Toronto Review: Benedict Cumberbatch Is A Fine Julian Assange, But Bill Condon's Festival Opener 'The Fifth Estate' Can't Do Justice to the WikiLeaks Story

    Julian Assange is among the most captivating figures of the internet age partly because history has yet to reach a verdict about him. Living in London's Ecuadorian Embassy since last June to avoid extradition charges, Assange still runs the underground organization WikiLeaks' role. His persistence ...

    Venice Review: Japanese Remake Of Clint Eastwood's 'Unforgiven' Starring Ken Watanabe

    Lord knows that, over the years, Hollywood has plundered its fair share of Japanese cinema.

    Review: John Akomfrah’s Dense, Intricate 'The Stuart Hall Project' (In UK Cinemas Tomorrow)

    It would be unfair to call The Stuart Hall Project a simple documentary. The film, directed by John Akomfrah, is a visual and sonic excursion into the life and philosophies of the Jamaican-born intellectual, a finely crafted collage of memory, distilling hundreds of hours of archival footage of...

    This Weekend: Hannah Fidell's Must-See 'A Teacher,' Plus 'Salinger' Doc, Lynn Shelton's 'Touchy Feely' and More

    Very few new-release films are sitting positively with critics this weekend. But -- Tomatometer be damned -- Hannah Fidell's indie "A Teacher" is nonetheless a must-see, anchored by a startlingly complex performance from Lindsay Burdge as a high school teacher whose illicit affair with one of her st...
