    All good things must come to an end, and Ethan Hawke's glorious summer of 2013, in which he starred in the most universally beloved indie darling of the year ("Before Midnight") alongside a bona fide horror movie hit ("The Purge"), has now come to an inglorious finale with his starring role in the r...

    Venice Review: Israeli Film Academy Best Picture Nominee 'Bethlehem'

    Venice has welcomed Israeli films into its line up many times over the last few years: tank-bound war film “Lebanon” was a Golden Lion-winner a few years back, and last year saw “Fill The Void” become something of a crowd-pleaser at the festival. “ Bethlehem,” the feature directorial debut of filmma...

    Kill the Rich: YOU'RE NEXT and the Discreet Charms of the One Percent

    In its by turns disturbing and hilarious portrayal of a privileged family’s reunion gone horribly wrong, You’re Next gives us what is perhaps this year’s most trenchant commentary on an America increasingly riddled by narcissism and greed.

    Venice Review: Alfonso Cuarón's 'Gravity' Starring Sandra Bullock & George Clooney

    Since JFK vowed to put a man on the moon in 1961, space has represented untold possibility. Hope. Optimism. But once we actually got there, we realized what a terrifying place it can be. An endless void, freezing and/or burning, a place without air or life. But most terrifyingly of all, if you die ...

    Fantasia Film Festival Reviews: 'Sweetwater,' 'The Battery' & 'Ritual: A Psychomagic Story'

    Logan Miller’s “Sweetwater” (titled “Sweet Vengeance” in the credits, though it carries the first title at Fantasia) is an idiosyncratic western with a decidedly contemporary sensibility, merging a stoic approach to violence with an off-kilter, nearly Monty Python sensibility. It’s an unusual fit, b...

    Review: Why 'Passion' Will Please Brian De Palma Fans -- And No One Else

    Since the earliest stages of Brian De Palma's career, his thrillers have constantly walked a line between self-parody and earnest pastiche. "Passion," a reworking of the late Alain Corneau's final film "Love Crimes," reassuringly falls into this camp, signaling a return to form for the director desp...

    Review: 'Closed Circuit' Starring Eric Bana & Rebecca Hall

    Focus Features is starting to build their own exclusive tentpole weekend each year. Marvel usually claims the opening May slot of every summer, and different studios trade off the lucrative July 4th period. But Focus has rubber-stamped the under-attended Labor Day weekend as theirs, with middlebrow ...

    Oprah and Forest Whitaker in 'Lee Daniels' The Butler'

    Lee Daniels' The Butler is some serious, probably effective Oscar bait. It is also -- these things so often go together -- audience-pandering History Lite. Forest Whitaker, as a butler who serves at the White House through eight Presidents, from Eisenhower to Reagan, gives a dazzling performance; he...
