    DVD Review - 'The Double Steps' Is A Mysterious and Peculiar Wonder

    Written and directed by Isaki Lacuesta, The Double Steps is a Spanish-Swiss production I profiled on the site after it won the top prize at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Barcelona, Spain last year.

    The term “Post-Racial” is itself too problematic when it is misunderstood as being a term of racial colorblindness in today’s still racially contentious society. What the term may actually signify is that in our contemporary cultural discourse Blacks are no longer to be considered the sole victims ...

    Alain Resnais' 'You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet' is an Uneven Throwback to His Best Work

    The most prominent member of the French New Wave's Left Bank filmmakers, the 90-year-old Alain Resnais has never really slowed down, but "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" is hardly the poetic crowdpleaser of his last outing, 2009's "Wild Grass." While the new movie lacks the same cohesion, it leaves plen...

    Review: 'The Purge' Starring Ethan Hawke & Lena Headey

    Rarely do horror films these days luxuriate in big ideas. Instead, they are usually a simple formula, based on a rudimentary conceptual framework (cameras capture supernatural activity, madman devises ingenious torture traps), stretched painfully thin over 90 minutes or so. One of the things that ma...

    A Philosophy Ph.D. Reviews 'Hannah Arendt'

    Margarethe von Trotta thoroughly eschews filmic biographic conventions in her presentation of important intellectual figures, both in her 1986 "Rosa Luxemburg" and in "Hannah Arendt," which opened theatrically last week.

    Review: German Film Award Winner 'Hannah Arendt' Starring Barbara Sukowa

    "Thinking is a lonely business," utters Martin Heidegger to his student and lover Hannah Arendt, and Margarethe von Trotta's biopic of Ms. Arendt certainly hammers the point home. Barbara Sukowa, who portrays the titular thinker/philosopher/theorist, is possessed with an ability to make her frequent...

    ANIME REVIEW: "Tiger & Bunny"

    Mismatched duos have been a staple of comic strips and animation since Bud Fisher’s "Mutt and Jeff" debuted in 1907; It’s a story device that seems infinitely recyclable, and the latest unlikely duo to prove it are crime-fighters Kotetsu "Wild Tiger" Kaburagi and Barnaby "Bunny" Brooks, Jr., in Tig...

    Review: Joss Whedon's Verily Updated 'Much Ado About Nothing' (VIDEO)

    A healthy dose of disrespect keeps Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing” from toppling into the swamp of sensibilities that so often swallows up Shakespeare updates – those well-intentioned “reimaginings” that put a cast in new clothes and new attitudes, and thus render the dialogue even dustier th...
