    Sundance Review: 'The One I Love' Starring Elizabeth Moss & Mark Duplass

    At first blush, "The One I Love" appears to be just the latest standard operating relationship dramedy to pass through Sundance. But while the relationship at the center of the film is the engine that drives the narrative, there are much more mysterious things going on under the hood. The film cente...

    Sundance Review: David Wain's 'They Came Together' Gives Assembly-Line Rom-Coms A Brisk, Bruising Rebuttal

    A parody that loves, knows and understands what it’s mocking, David Wain’s “They Came Together” (co-written with Michael Showalter) lovingly nuzzles up to the plots, clichés and tropes of the modern big-studio rom-com specifically, only to then slash at the jugular to spill their anemic, overly swee...

    Sundance Review: Gregg Araki’s 'White Bird In A Blizzard' Starring Shailene Woodley, Eva Green & More

    By now, devoted cinephiles likely know what to expect going into a Gregg Araki movie: sex-crazed teens, an overabundance of nudity (sometimes pretty, sometimes not), a dream-like story wrapped snugly in a nightmare and a killer soundtrack.

    Critic's Notebook: Ignore the Naysayers. This Year's Sundance Film Festival Transcended Clichés

    It's safe to say that a lot of the journalists attending this year's festival didn't see enough movies to assess the overall artistic lineup of the program; furthermore, they turned to buyers with narrow goals to provide the voice of authority.

    Review: 'I, Frankenstein' Starring Aaron Eckhart, Yvonne Strahovski & Bill Nighy

    Over the years, Frankenstein's monster, originally brought to vivid life in the pages of Mary Shelley's classic horror novel "Frankenstein," has been many things—a hulking brute, a tortured poet, a comic foil, a Marvel superhero. But in Stuart Beattie's colorless new sci-fi mishmash, "I, Frankenstei...

    Sundance Review: More Fun With Zombie Nazis Isn't Enough to Salvage 'Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead'

    Like its predecessor, “Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead” heaps entrails and endless liters of blood onto the screen as straight-faced actors combat a Nazi zombie uprising.
