    'World War Z': Deja Vu, Plus Brad PItt and Zombies

    Unfinished Song

    I found this film extremely frustrating; on the one hand it treats its senior-citizen characters as “cute” and then delivers moments of genuine pathos that cause you to tear up.

    Review: ’The Attack’ Is A Gripping, Suspenseful, Fearless Drama Set Around A Suicide Bombing

Film Fest (we even ...
