    Review: Greengrass Turns Screws with Intense Real-Life Thriller 'Captain Phillips,' Starring Oscar-Contender Hanks

    Given that Captain Richard Phillips turned up at the L.A. premiere on Skype and wrote the memoir on which this adventure is based, it is not news that he survived.

    'Gravity' Review: Cuaron's Exhilarating 3-D Space Ballet Is Anchored by Bullock and Clooney

    If Alfonso Cuaron's hypnotic, exhilarating space thriller "Gravity" isn't thematically as potent as "Children Of Men," his allegory about an infertile world, it is nonetheless a mesmerizing experience from start to finish, an extraordinary visual triumph. The film deploys 3-D in prodigious fashion, ...

And it’s one such moment that Matt Porterfield’s Sundance-approved third feature, “I Used to be Darker,” dea...
