    Review: 'The Lego Movie' Starring Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett & More

    It's easy to view "The Lego Movie" with a degree of skepticism, if not outright suspicion. This is, after all, a movie that is based on a popular line of building block toys, and one that, unlike big screen adaptations of things like "Transformers" or "Battleship," actually retain the original toy's...

    As much as we’re diehard devotees to the work of Ingmar Bergman, occasionally the sombre reverence in which he’s held can make the prospect of participating in the critical narrative that surrounds his astonishing filmography feel about as much fun as, well, playing chess with Death.

    Göteborg Review: Venice Winner ‘Class Enemy’ A Lean, Absorbing Parable Of Authoritarianism & Rebellion

    While we could wish it had a less punny title, “Class Enemy,” the debut feature film from Slovenian shorts filmmaker Rok Bicek is in almost every other way exemplary.
