    Review: 'The Act Of Killing' Is A Constantly Astounding, Terrifying Masterpiece

    Holy fucking shit. That was my reaction coming out of a screening of Joshua Oppenheimer’s shattering documentary “The Act of Killing,” at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year , that we're reprinting now as it heads to theatres. And is really all you need to know: “The Act of Killing” is truly ...

    Review: Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives' Starring Ryan Gosling

    With the weight of expectation behind it, Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives” was never going to be able to deliver the same neon blue jolt of surprise that thrilled audiences who saw “Drive.” And the anticipation for this film has certainly been high for this film, that in early stages at le...

    Review: DreamWorks Animation's 'Turbo' Featuring The Voices of Ryan Reynolds & Samuel L. Jackson

    With some DreamWorks Animation movies, you can practically see and hear the pitch meeting that they came out of, as fully realized as any of the whiz-bang 3D computer graphics that will eventually coat movie theater screens nationwide. There are a few executives there, some animators, maybe one of t...

    Review: Woody Allen's ‘Blue Jasmine’ Starring Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin & Sally Hawkins

    Like clockwork, the prodigious workaholic Woody Allen releases a movie each year. And every 12 months, there is the temptation to compare Allen’s latest with his past works, given that they tend to have formed a 31 flavors-like distinction over the last five decades. There’s the more recent trend to...

    'Blue Jasmine' Review: Cate Blanchett Excels in Woody Allen's Uneven New Film as a Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (TRAILER)

    Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” features a knock-down, drag-out performance by Cate Blanchett as an emotionally frayed housewife who, through a series of trying betrayals, is all washed up. The film itself doesn’t match Blanchett’s stunning commitment -- which is a pity, because in various ways it is o...

    Review: Juan Andrés Arango's Quietly Absorbing 'La Playa D.C.' (1-Week Theatrical Run Starts Fri.)

    Juan Andrés Arango's La Playa D.C. is a familiar tale wrapped in different packaging, we could say, which speaks to the commonly-held belief that, once you strip away what lies at the surface of any work of film art, and get to its core, you'll find themes that are universal.

    First Reviews of 'The Wolverine'

    The first-reviews of The Wolverine, which sends Hugh Jackman's adamantine-clawed X-Man to Japan -- apparently to get as far away from X-Men Origins: Wolverine as possible -- have started to trickle in, and if you were hoping for a movie that's slightly better than the first Wolverine movie but not a...

    The Matter-of-Fact Multiculturalism of 'Turbo'

    The reviews for Turbo, DreamWorks' animated tale of a snail with a dream to race in the Indy 500, are in, and for the most part, well, "lukewarm" would be overselling them. As City Weeklys Scott Renshaw put it on Twitter, "Turbo strives for nothing, says nothing, accomplishes nothing. It's not 'bad....
