    Sparkle—movie review

    'Cosmopolis,' Beyond the RPatz Publicity Tour (Review)

    Whatever David Cronenberg thought he was doing while making Cosmopolis, he could never have imagined the most relevent cultural nerve it would hit: the film has become the inadvertent cause of Robert Pattinson’s first post-KStew publicity tour. (If you missed Pattinson’s appearance ...

    In recent years, Sundance has been hit with a handful of smart science fiction films tackling large themes within an extremely limited scope.
