    Those who were fans of the 1990s police drama New York Undercover will remember the series being just as popular for its sense of style and cultural influence as it was for its story lines. While wondering if Detectives Williams and Torres would solve their case each week, the equally urgent questio...

    It is the August of their lives, and elderly couple Nick (Jim Broadbent) and Meg (Lindsay Duncan) are absolutely lost. They’re attempting to go on holiday, during what we’re to imagine is one of the quietest moments in their shared life. The abrasiveness of Meg’s jokes suggests that things were neve...

    NYFF Review: Time Travel Rom-Com 'About Time' Starring Rachel McAdams & Domnhall Gleeson

    We’ve sat through an entire generation of fantasy and science fiction films about a protagonist gifted with extraordinary powers who first Resists, then Accepts The Call, which almost always involves saving the world, defeating a powerful villain, and re-establishing the status quo. Very rarely does...

    Review: Devastating and Philosophical, Alan Berliner's Alzheimer's Portrait 'First Cousin Once Removed' Is His Best Movie

    Documentarian Alan Berliner is frequently the focus of his movies, but his intentions extend beyond his neuroses. Rather than the star of the show, he's a vessel for bigger ideas and evades the perils of self-indulgence that could result from putting himself in front of the camera. Case in point: "F...

    Review: Cannibal Shocker 'We Are What We Are' Will Devour Your Expectations

    Writer-director Jim Mickle has steadily established himself as a horror filmmaker that treats the art of shock value with rare maturity. In his feature-length debut "Mulberry Street," he funneled a cheesy monster movie into a metaphor for gentrification and urban decay; in his follow-up, "Stake Land...

    It’s the end of the world and the kids can’t stop partying in “+1,” the new horror whatzit from director Dennis Iliadis.

    Review: Terrible Off-Broadway Adaptation 'Jewtopia' Starring Jennifer Love Hewitt

    One gets flummoxed when forced to discuss something like “Jewtopia,” the existence of which we’d all like to disavow. Based on the sort of off-Broadway play best suited to people who hate theater, this embarrassing cocktail of racial obliviousness nonetheless has amassed a considerable cast of estab...

    Review: French Cooking Comedy 'Haute Cuisine' An Unmemorable Meal

    Loosely based on the life of French president François Mitterrand’s personal chef, “Haute Cuisine” is a cream puff of a film. It’s sweet and airy without much nutritional value. You will definitely leave the movie hungry, largely because each dish created by Catherine Frot’s Hortense Laborie is more...
