    Review: Charles Murray's Spoken Word Love Story 'Things Never Said' (Opens In LA Friday)

    In his feature directorial debut, longtime television writer/EP Charles Murray takes a turn from TV action-drama to deliver a decidedly black love story reminiscent of the late '90s heyday of the genre.

    Venice Review: Kim-Ki Duk's Taboo-Shattering Black Comedy 'Moebius'

    Internationally at least, Kim Ki-Duk's "Pieta" was hardly the popular choice to win the Golden Lion at last year's Venice Film Festival. The Korean provocateur is a long-time favorite at Venice, and the film was predictably well-received by local audiences and critic, but U.S. and U.K. critics, ours...

    Review: 'Riddick' Starring Vin Diesel, Katee Sackhoff, And Karl Urban

    "Pitch Black," released by Universal in 2000 to little fanfare, was a small-scale genre movie that took almost everyone who saw it by surprise. It featured a nifty conceit (space travelers are marooned on a hostile alien world inhabited by nocturnal predators days before a lengthy solar eclipse) and...

    Venice Review: Alex Gibney's Lance Armstrong Documentary 'The Armstrong Lie'

    The last few years have seen sport of all kinds haunted by the specter of doping, with everyone from Barry Bonds to Alex Rodriguez linked to the use of banned substances. But the name that is likely to forever be linked with drugs cheating in sports is Lance Armstrong. Thanks to his seven victories ...

    Review: 'Money For Nothing: Inside The Federal Reserve'

    In 2010, Charles Ferguson's powerful "Inside Job" arrived in theaters, hot on the heels of 2007-2008 financial crisis. It was an effective, scathing and furious look at the systemic breakdown of the very institutions that are supposed to protect us that led to a situation that put the entire world e...

    Review: 'Abigail Harm' Starring Amanda Plummer & Will Patton

    Abigail watches from a distance as the man disrobes. A modestly-handsome Asian man, he has no name, and freely abandons his towel to dowse himself in a tub in the middle of an abandoned studio space. She flinches, waiting for the right moment to seize the towel, to trap him within his own nudity. He...

    The Axis of Cool in DRINKING BUDDIES, and How It Tilts

    Joe Swanberg, as has been duly noted elsewhere, is building a portrait of a generation with his body of work. It's easy to imagine that, as Swanberg's films expand in scope, the crisis his characters face, the crucial question--can my plaid, my organic coffee, and my iPod survive my larger life cris...

    Venice Review: Steven Knight’s ‘Locke’ Starring Tom Hardy

    Of all the genres, the single location film is perhaps one of the hardest to get right. For one, you need a hell of an actor (or actors) to hold the attention for even the briefest of running times. You also need a story that coherently keeps the actors in place, with enough of a hook to keep you in...
