    Locarno Review: Despite Cerebral Fixations, 'Lore' Is Still a Radical Take on the Holocaust Survivor Tale From a Nazi Perspective

    Remove the prologue from Australian director Cate Shortland's German-language drama "Lore," which follows the teen daughter (newbie Saskia Rosendahl) of an S.S. officer on the lam in the immediate aftermath of World War II, and it would have much in common with any number of mopey Holo...

    Critic's Notebook: Why 'Johnny Guitar,' Now On Blu-ray, Deserves a Second Look

    Most 50's psycho-westerns look at the genre, its heroes and American frontier history they inhabit through a glass darkened by the realities of WWII. "Johnny Guitar" views the western through a Jungian kaleidoscope.

    Total Recall—movie review

    Does the world need a remake of 'Total Recall'? The 1990 original didn’t look or sound like anything we’d seen before, with its mix of intriguing ideas, cutting-edge special effects, and overblown violence, courtesy of the never-subtle director Paul Verhoeven.

    Celeste and Jesse Forever—movie review
