    Review: Oscar-Nominated 'The Great Beauty' Wonderfully Serves Up the Sublime and Grotesque in Equal Measure

    Paolo Sorrentino’s “The Great Beauty,” nominated for a Best Foreign-Language Oscar, is unimaginable without Federico Fellini. And just as unimaginable without Silvio Berlusconi.

    Sundance Review: Zombie Rom Com 'Life After Beth' Starring Aubrey Plaza & Dane DeHaan

    In the last decade, left-of-center zombies have become so ubiquitous that we’re bordering on critical mass, with as many spoofs being released as straight-ahead horror renditions.
