    Now and Then: On Film, America's Culture of Violence

    The most terrifying 80 minutes I've spent in my career as a film critic were those spent watching "Elephant," in which even the rhythmic click-click-click of photographic negatives being shaken in chemicals brought me the edge of what I can bear.

    Revisiting History: Booker’s Place

    So many documentaries come out every year that it isn’t possible to keep up with them all. I watched 'Booker’s Place' (now open theatrically in New York and Los Angeles, and available nationwide On Demand) because I admire its director, Raymond De Felitta, who most recently gave us the piquantly ori...

    Make Way for Tomorrow

    Until a short while ago when the invaluable Criterion Collection made it part of their series of classics, one of the hardest-to-see, most personal, least commercial and least known of quality pictures to come from the American studio system was Leo McCarey’s profoundly touching 1937 drama (wi...

    Review: 'The Avengers' Has Its Issues, But Mostly Delivers Thrilling, Engaging, Blockbuster Fun
