    Review: 'Sister' Is A Beautifully Bleak Coming-Of-Age Story

    A young child is dressing in a bathroom stall. We can’t tell what he looks like, as he layers on shapeless winter clothing and a neoprene mask hides all discernible features save for a pair of bright, knowing eyes. He goes through the pre-ski ritual, bundling up before braving the windy, snowy lands...

    Review: 'Wuthering Heights' Is A Superb, Groundbreaking Adaptation Of The Classic Tale

    One of the most exciting talents to emerge out of the U.K. in the last decade or so is Andrea Arnold. The former television presenter won an Oscar for her short film "Wasp" in 2005, and made her feature debut the following year with the powerful, gritty thriller "Red Road." 2009 saw her follow it up...

    Review: 'The House I Live In' A Messy, But No Less Potent Examination Of The Misguided War On Drugs

And perhaps most bracing of all, while African-Americans only make up 13% of the population, and 14% of its drug users, they account for 56% of...

    NYFF Review: 'Araf' Stirs & Shocks In Equal Measure

    There isn’t much that can prepare you for the drastic second-half turn of “Araf,” an often-gorgeous drama playing in the Main Slate at the New York Film Festival. Evocative and somewhat alien in equal measure, “Araf” takes place in a withered Turkish countryside that might as well be another planet....

    NYFF Review: Devastating and Philosophical, Alan Berliner's Alzheimer's Portrait 'First Cousin Once Removed' Is His Best Movie

    Documentarian Alan Berliner is frequently the star of his movies, but his focus extends beyond his neuroses.
