    Elysium

    Matt Damon, in yet another first-rate performance, plays an ordinary guy who’s had squabbles with law enforcement in the past and continues to buck the system.

    "Prince Avalanche" is a difficult film to pigeonhole, and that's part of its appeal.

    Lovelace

    The 1970s recreation is remarkably good, from costuming and often-hilarious hairstyles... to the details of shooting a porno film—on film. Storytelling also benefits from Stephen Trask's subtly effective score.

    Review: 'Lovelace' Starring Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, James Franco, Adam Brody & More

    Not so much a film about Linda Lovelace as a film about a bunch of things that happen to Linda Lovelace, including a destructive marriage to seeming complete, total, bonafide scumbag sonofabitch Chuck Traynor, "Lovelace" is a glossy, starry package featuring loving '70s set design, costuming and nar...

    Netflix Streaming Pick Review - 'The First Grader' Is Well-Meaning But Lacks Context & Drama Force

    Inspiring and heart-warming are words that will easily be pegged to the description of The First Grader. The story of an 84 year old Kenyan man enrolling in primary school is, after all, the sort of feel-good thing you expect to hear after all the bad news has been dispensed with, the sort of story ...

    This Weekend: See 'In a World,' 'Prince Avalanche,' Smart but Uneven 'Elysium,'; Skip 'Lovelace,' 'Planes,' 'We're the Millers'

    Indies are your best bet this weekend. Don't miss Lake Bell's hilarious feminist comedy "In a World," skewering the macho trailer voice-over business; and David Gordon Green's return to independent filmmaking, the well-reviewed "Prince Avalanche," a two-hander starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.
