    AFI Fest Review: 'Rise of the Guardians' Is An Animated Yuletide Treat

    Now and Then: 'Your Sister's Sister,' Lost in the Oscar Shuffle

    AFI Fest Review: Joe Swanberg's 'All the Light in the Sky' Is a Minor Effort in a Minor Key

    Some filmmakers invest in each new movie with a robustness comparable to a band making a full-fledged musical album, but Joe Swanberg's lean, scrappy approach to each project often results in works resembling individual tracks. "All the Light in the Sky" is a B-side in the prolific you...

    To understand the hyperbole being tossed around when so-bad-it’s-good obsessives talk about “Miami Connection,” it’s vital to acknowledge that the best “bad” movies have a great making-of story. The current reigning champ of the lot remains Tommy Wiseau’s incomparable “The Room” (sorry “Birdemic” fa...
