    This Weekend: See Harrowing 'The Act of Killing,' 'Blackfish,' 'Only God Forgives,' Skip 'RED 2'

    This is a very strong weekend for indies. Joshua Oppenheimer's "The Act of Killing" is an artful examination of genocide in Indonesia; Gabriela Cowperthwaite's "Blackfish" centers on the lethal consequences of SeaWorld's captivity of orca whales; and Andrew Bujalski's latest, "Computer Chess," is a ...

    'R.I.P.D.' Review: Not as Bad as the Buzz, But Still Loud and Clunky

    "R.I.P.D." isn’t nearly as bad as its near-deafening advance buzz indicated -- though, really, what movie could be? -- but that doesn’t mean the laughs and gasps are satisfyingly abundant in this loud and clunky sci-fi fantasy action-comedy.

    Review: Andrew Bujalski's 'Computer Chess'

    The first thought upon sitting down for “Computer Chess” might be one of snobby resistance.

    Kristen Wiig In 'Girl Most Likely' And Jeff Garlin In 'Dealin' With Idiots' Make For Weird Combo Of New Indie Comedies
