    Weekend Preview: 'Iron Man 3' a Smart Superhero Flick; Critics Applaud 'What Maisie Knew' and 'Something in the Air,' Mixed on 'Post Tenebras Lux'

    How 'The Purge,' Opening the Stanley Film Festival, Reminds Us Why We Love Horror Movies

    The Stanley Hotel might not harbor ghosts in the traditional sense, but the empty hallways and surrounding desolation of this remote chunk of wooden real estate adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park, Colorado suggest the sort of phantom presence that active imaginations tend to crea...

    Review: Olivier Assayas’ ‘Something In The Air’ A Gorgeous Autobiography Marred By Underdeveloped Characters

    He’s been something of a critical favorite for a while now, but after making the hugely acclaimed “Summer Hours” and the TV miniseries/theatrical marathon “Carlos” within a few years of each other, French filmmaker Olivier Assayas has firmly cemented himself as one of the more exciting directors in ...

    Well-Forged: Iron Man 3

    Sequels are a tricky business. I thought "Iron Man 2" squandered much of the good will the original 2008 film, and its oddly inspired casting of Robert Downey, Jr., engendered.

    Tribeca Review: ‘Gore Vidal: The United States Of Amnesia’ Is A Forgettable Film About An Unforgettable Figure

    Gore Vidal is fascinating. Whether you agree with his politics or you enjoy is witty brand of snark or neither, he led an incredible and prolific life – one that could encompass multiple documentaries and this ultimately becomes the pitfall of “Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia” as it tries t...

    Review: 'Dead Man's Burden' Is A Stunningly Shot, Slow Burner Of A Classic, Yet Modern Western

    One of the most cinematically gorgeous independent films in a long time, “Dead Man’s Burden” (along with fellow 2012 indie “Beasts of the Southern Wild," shot on Super 16) truly makes the case for celluloid.

    Review: 'What Maisie Knew' Is Deeply Affecting, Hard To Watch

    It’s often an easy way to handicap your film, by centering it on a child character and demanding a great deal from the young actor.
