    TIFF 2013 Review: Jahmil Qubeka's Thriller 'Of Good Report' Brands Him A Director To Watch

    The reasons for its controversial initial banning in the filmmaker's native South Africa, are easily identified, although for those who've been exposed to far more gratuitous displays of sexuality and violence on screen (there's an abundance of that here in the USA), Jahmil X.T. Qubeka's sophomore f...

    TIFF Review: 'Therese' Starring Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac & Jessica Lange

    What a tangled web we weave when with heaving bosoms and pained looks of longing we deceive, and Charlie Stratton's adaptation of author Emile Zola's "Therese Raquin" certainly features enough scenes of both of those. It's a story that's been brought forth in a number to TV productions and most nota...

    TIFF 2013 Reviews - Tommy Oliver's Debut '1982' Provides A Platform For Hill Harper To Shine

    The biggest takeaway from 1982, writer-director Tommy Oliver’s debut feature film, is that Hill Harper should simply be getting more roles. With a decades-spanning career that includes recurring television parts on the now defunct CSI: NY and Soul Food, the 47-year-old actor and writer has had the f...

    Review: D.C. Sniper Drama 'Blue Caprice' Starring Isaiah Washington

    Perhaps reading the tabloids gives a greater insight as to why an actor like Isaiah Washington currently works on the periphery of Hollywood. Handsome, forceful, and compelling, Washington drives “Blue Caprice,” a new drama that chronicles the D.C.-wide sniper shootings of 2002. As John Allen Muhamm...

    Review: Catherine Hardwicke's Musical Murder Mystery Melodrama 'Plush' With Emily Browning & Cam Gigandet

    The first five minutes of "Plush," the new musical murder mystery from Catherine Hardwicke (who started the "Twilight" franchise with a bang, before getting shoved to the side for a succession of anonymous filmmakers), are misleading in a pretty profound way. In this introductory sequence, an unseen...

    Review: 'GMO OMG' Is A Personal Journey Into The Food Industry

    There are moments in “GMO OMG” that feel a little bit like “Jaws” and “Psycho.” What those films did for the beach and the shower, this documentary from Jeremy Seifert could do for the grocery store for those who are easily persuaded. We left the movie stressing out over what we could eat for dinner...
