    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'In A World...' Directed By & Starring Lake Bell

    In a world... where female writers are scarce and female writer/directors even more so, Lake Bell has done both with panache in her feature debut, “In A World...” That the film itself is a meta-commentary on the persistent and open sexism in Hollywood is even more impressive.

    Review: Disney/Pixar's 'Monsters University'

    When Disney/Pixar’s “Monsters Inc” was released way back in the fall of 2001, it was easily the studio’s warmest and endearingly heart-tugging feature.
