    Women live in a world of domineering men in several new releases, starting with the one that has received the most publicity of late, Paul Schrader's "The Canyons."

    Review: Brit Horror-Comedy 'Cockneys Vs. Zombies'

    Has there been anything of worth in the world of zombies in the last five years or so? It feels like the last time the walking dead were relevant was Edgar Wright’s savvy send-up “Shaun of the Dead,” with a footnote to the genre being the angry politics of George A. Romero’s “Land Of The Dead” and t...

    Top Ways (Sarcastic and Not) Futuristic 'Elysium' Reflects Today

    Matt Damon can save almost any film for me, and the perfectly competent, entirely predictable Elysium may be where "almost" kicks in.

    Review: Joachim LaFosse's 'Our Children' Starring Tahar Rahim

    Some movies you don't exit, you escape. You crawl out from underneath them, they're so heavy and oppressive and immovably huge. "Our Children" is one such weighty mass.
