    Sundance Review: John Michael McDonagh’s ‘Calvary’ Starring Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd & Kelly Reilly

    Sundance Review: Gareth Evans' ‘The Raid 2’ Improves On The Action In A Follow-Up That’s Both Lesser And Longer

    When “The Raid” started on the festival circuit in 2011 in Toronto, it was a bloody blast of fresh air, with incredible action sequences throughout an energetically and expressively shot film with amazing stunt work and bone-crushing fight scenes captured with fluid camerawork, long takes and a gidd...
