    'Cloud Atlas' Sharply (and Kind of Weirdly) Divides Critics

    They generally agree about what this sci-fi epic is -- they just can't agree whether they like it or not.

    13 Indie Horror Movies From 2012 to Watch on Halloween

    Last year, Indiewire inaugurated a new tradition by singling out 13 recent indie horror movies in time for Halloween. The truth is that great horror cinema surfaces all year long, but the national holiday presents a nice opportunity to champion films too often dismissed by the faint-hearted mainstre...

    Review: 'Dust Up' Is A Hipster Apocalypse Western, Like Alex Cox Doing 'Mad Max'

    No budget, no problem. The seams show often in “Dust Up,” an unapologetically silly action comedy that feels as if it was produced entirely from the loose change found on all of Brooklyn’s collective bar tops. Complimenting the jaunty original score and songs from Spindrift and Gram Rabbit are stock...

    Weekend Preview: Julia Loktev's Psychological Slow Burner 'The Loneliest Planet,' An Ambitious but Flawed 'Cloud Atlas'

    While "Cloud Atlas" gets all the attention this weekend (good and bad), several other films are worth checking out for those not interesting in spending nearly three hours watching movie stars play multiple parts (races, genders, etc) to a mostly unsatisfying conclusion. While ambitious an...

    Review: ‘Silent Hill: Revelation’ A Silly, Artless & Depressing Sequel

    The problem with movies based on video games (or movies that try to capture the video game experience) is that they always come across like watching someone else play a video game. These movies might have budget-pushing effects and plotlines that mimic the follow-the-clues narrative of most games, b...

    Review: 'Wreck-It-Ralph' Has A Great Concept But Fails To Level Up Into Something Unique

    Certainly, in some quarters, anticipation for Disney's "Wreck-It-Ralph" was high. With Pixar stuck in sequel mode, and with their original story "Brave" underwhelming this summer, many wondered if the Mouse House would step it up where their colleagues dropped the ball. With a seemingly fresh premis...

    Review: Not So 'Fun Size' Doesn't Know The Audience It Wants

    While you can debate the merits of "The O.C.," "Gossip Girl" and "Chuck," it can't be argued that writer/producer Josh Schwartz knows how to zero in on a target audience and cater to them specifically and successfully. Generally, his most lucrative milieu is in providing tweenage girls lukewarm TV s...

    Review: Uninventive U.K. ‘Pusher’ Remake Offers Typically Stylized Drug Psychosis & Nothing More

    Indulge us for a moment. Nicolas Winding Refn's "Pusher" trilogy was never meant to be a triptych, let alone a multi-language spawning remake series (there has already been a U.K. produced, Hindi language version). Refn's original "Pusher" gained critical acclai...

    Cloud Atlas

    Enthralling and frustrating…far-reaching and obtuse…grandiose and gimmicky. 'Cloud Atlas' is all of these and more, and while I was less taken with the film at its conclusion than I was midway through, it offered me a unique moviegoing experience for which I am grateful.
