    Review: 'The Source Family' Documentary

    The allure of cults has always escaped me. Collectivism, communism, various forms of communal religious experience, even The Borg on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" not so much; since I don’t lump especially egregious forms of each in with the garden variety pejoratives often associated with cults ...

    Written and directed by Isaki Lacuesta, The Double Steps is a Spanish-Swiss production I profiled on the site after it won the top prize at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Barcelona, Spain last year.

    'End Of Watch' Explores A Post-Racial Holocaust

    The term “Post-Racial” is itself too problematic when it is misunderstood as being a term of racial colorblindness in today’s still racially contentious society.

    Review: German Film Award Winner 'Hannah Arendt' Starring Barbara Sukowa

    "Thinking is a lonely business," utters Martin Heidegger to his student and lover Hannah Arendt, and Margarethe von Trotta's biopic of Ms. Arendt certainly hammers the point home. Barbara Sukowa, who portrays the titular thinker/philosopher/theorist, is possessed with an ability to make her frequent...
