    Review: Decent & Well-Acted 'Saving Mr. Banks' With Tom Hanks & Emma Thompson

    Though the general public doesn't always share their enthusiasm, Hollywood loves making movies about itself. Whether fictional or based in reality, it's rare for a year to pass without some kind of film about filmmaking, from classics like "Sunset Boulevard" and "Mulholland Drive" to, uh, not-classi...

    Review: Oscar Contender 'The Crash Reel' Is A Moving, Effective Exploration Of Extreme Sports

    Lucy Walker’s “The Crash Reel” would have been compelling if it were just about snowboarder Kevin Pearce’s career and impressive skills in the half pipe.
