    Review: 'Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal' An Enjoyable If Somewhat Slight Horror-Comedy

    A blunt, no-nonsense title like "Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal" perfectly describes the type of movie you're going to encounter when viewing Boris Rodriguez's first narrative feature -- a weird, darkly comic tale offering little more than an enjoyable experience. While 'Eddie' could've tried a li...

    Review: 'Free Angela & All Political Prisoners' A Fascinating Chronicle Of Justice & Strength

    "Black power means dignity," is a phrase that lingers from Shola Lynch's documentary about activist and scholar Angela Davis. And dignity is just one of the many qualities that one can attach to Davis, a bold and powerful figure whose own battle for justice and freedom is chronicled in "Free Angela ...

    Review: 'Down The Shore' With James Gandolfini & Famke Janssen An Overheated Jersey Melodrama

    What is it about Jersey that causes filmmakers to make films which constantly talk about escaping from or dreading a return to the Garden State? If I didn’t just answer my own question, there’s always “Down The Shore,” an actors' showcase melodrama that captures the small town as a prison where char...

    Now and Then: Why We Love GIFs, from Taylor Swift to Goats (VIDEO)

    Disclaimer: this will not be your usual romance. It involves Taylor Swift, a goat, and a lemon among its cast of thousands. It has no clear "meet cute," and may not reach a happy ending. In one sense at least, it has no beginning or ending at all. But somewhere along the way we fell in love with the...

    DVD/VOD Review: 'Michael Jackson's This Is It' (A Rarely Seen Portrait Of The Artist At Work)

    When this film was released in 2009 I wasn't sure if I would see it, given my profound disapproval of what I felt was Sony's obviously exploitative decision to produce and release the documentary, so soon after Michael Jackson's death.

    Written by Debbie Reynolds and Dorian Hannaway, “Unsinkable,” a memoir of Debbie Reynolds’ messy life after middle age overtook the bubbly teenager who spent decades starring in MGM musicals, is not a good book, but it’s worth reading.

    Review - John Akomfrah's 'The Nine Muses' Is A Deeply Moving Experience

    It’s been a long time since a film has moved me in quite the way that John Akomfrah’s The Nine Muses did. It wasn’t that happy, tingly, feel-good feeling you tend to get with some films that has you smiling as you leave the cinema and which you soon forget (the feeling and the actual film) once you’...

    Book Review: Lavish Art Abounds In The Art of The Croods

    There are two things a competently written art book should do: Give the reader an in-depth, inside look at how a film is created, and make one feel as if one is experiencing the world of the film without actually being in the theater. Noela Hueso succeeds at both on her first attempt at an “Art of” ...
