    Now and Then: Remarkable New Doc 'La Camioneta,' a Masterful Miniature (TRAILER)

    Spotsylvania County, Virginia and Queztal City, Guatemala are separated by nearly 3,000 miles of road, and by what would seem, at first, an unbridgeable cultural distance. But in Mark Kendall's remarkable documentary "La Camioneta" -- a brilliant microhistory of our globalized world -- you're hard p...

    Book Review: 'Rainer on Film'

    If “Rainer on Film” were simply a compendium of the movie reviews Peter Rainer has written over the last three decades, it would be no more or less worth reading than any film critic that you admire or dislike. There are a lot of reviews in the book, but there are also quirky overviews on the career...

    Review: Documentary 'Hey Bartender' Blends One Part Character Study, Two Parts Style

    BOOZE! It may not be quite as good a come-on as SEX! but there’s also a double shot of sexiness in “Hey Bartender,” which despite its shot-and-beer title is about the fine art of mixology, a.k.a. the alchemical mixing of alcoholic beverages (with names like Weep No More, the Minnehaha and the always...

    Review: James Marsh's 'Shadow Dancer' Starring Clive Owen & Andrea Riseborough

    If “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” represented the height of Cold War paranoia within the British intelligence community, then “Shadow Dancer” is the next chapter, replacing the ominous Russian government with a more localized threat: The Troubles in Northern Ireland.

    Cannes: While American Films Flatlined, Here Are the Highlights From Un Certain Regard

    It was a big year for American films in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, but in the neighboring Un Certain Regard section, they came and went with a whimper. Perhaps that's because they simply played it too safe in a section filled with daring creativity. Literally translated as "Of a Certa...

    Review: Margarethe von Trotta's 'Hannah Arendt' an Alluring Portrait of Mass Guilt and One Woman Who Wouldn't Back Down

    Margarethe von Trotta’s captivating “Hannah Arendt” is a slice of a biopic; it covers a ferociously controversial two years in the life of the 20th century philosopher who, during that time, would coin the term “the banality of evil.” Through Arendt’s story, the film looks at uneasy manifestations o...

    Why Zal Batmanglij's 'The East' Is Fascinating and Illogical at the Same Time

    Suspenseful, ludicrous, fascinating, and utterly unsubtle, Zal Batmanglij's "The East" plays like an unholy mash-up of "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and "Alias." The film builds on the themes of cult and identity that Batmanglij and his star Brit Marling explored artfully in their breakout debut "The S...

    Cannes Review: ‘Stranger By The Lake’ An Impressively Controlled, Sexually Explicit Tale Of Gay Summer Love & Murder

    The scheduling of the Cannes Film Festival works in such a way that it’s rare that we get to see any film based on anything as spontaneous as peer recommendation unless it’s already been on our radar for a few weeks beforehand. But one film that did come to our notice by that route, and then had the...
