    Review: ’The Attack’ Is A Gripping, Suspenseful, Fearless Drama Set Around A Suicide Bombing

    Something about its portrayal of a nightmarish descent into a previously inconceivable reality had us comparing Marrakech Film Festival Grand Prix winner “The Attack” to Thomas Vinterberg’s “The Hunt.” But the crucial difference is that while the Danish film is preoccupied with social concerns, “The...

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Goodbye World' A Realistic & Entertaining Take On The Apocalypse

    Blame it on the Mayans, maybe, but 2012 and 2013 have seen a host of films with apocalypse on the brain, from big budget action flicks to meta-comedies like “This Is The End,” to smaller, more realistic dramedies like “It’s A Disaster,” which made its premiere at last year’s L.A. Film Fest (we even ...

    Weekend Picks: 'Monsters,' Pirates, Terrorists and Zombies

    If you want to escape from the horrors of the real world, head straight to Pixar's "Monsters University," a delightful college comedy prequel that brings back the voices of John Goodman as Sully and Billy Crystal as Mike. Unlike the best Pixar films, this one is neither original nor aimed at the wid...

    L.A. Film Fest: Jean-Pierre Melville's Restored 'Two Men in Manhattan' Illustrates Why We're Overdue For a Melville Retrospective

    French director Jean-Pierre Melville was one of the greatest filmmakers of his generation, but his reputation in the United States has always suffered.

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Four Dogs' Is A Refreshingly Real & Funny Take on Hollywood & Friendship

    The debut directorial feature from Joe Burke, “Four Dogs,” could be aptly subtitled, “Down and Out in Hollywood,” as it centers Oliver (Oliver Cooper), on a struggling actor, and his acting class buddy, Dan (Dan Bakkedahl). But in actuality, the Hollywood struggle story is really only a surface conc...
