    Review: Gilroy's 'The Bourne Legacy' Delivers, Thanks to Renner

    I was looking forward to "The Bourne Legacy" more than most studio sequels that have lost their signature director and star.

    Locarno Review: With an Impressively Creepy Turn by Toby Jones, 'Berberian Sound Studio' Is an Enticing Audiovisual Enigma

    While the closest point of comparison for Strickland's eerie audiovisual thriller is Francis Ford Coppola's "The Conversation," its later scenes shift to Hitchcockian mode.
