    Review: 'New Jerusalem' A Hypnotic Film Experience About Friendship And Religion

    Despite a rather large and enthusiastic critical embrace of American neo-neo realism ("Wendy and Lucy," "Goodbye Solo," "Ballast," and a few others), there haven't been many (if any) new players entering the field. By contrast, mumblecore micro-indies are cropping u...

    Review: How 'Beware of Mr. Baker' And Other Recent Music Doc Subjects Make 2012 the Year of the Cinematic Rock Star
