    Review: The Weight Of The World Is On The Shoulders Of 'Strongman' And He's Bending It The Wrong Way

    Character studies are volatile beasts. It's not until you've seen one you don't quite connect with, that you appreciate how gutsy they really are from a storytelling perspective. What's ironic is that the more genuine the study is, the riskier the attempt at being embraced.

    AFI Film Fest Review: ‘Lone Survivor’ Starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster & Emile Hirsch
