    The Bourne Legacy—movie review

    It takes chutzpah to make a film called 'The Bourne Legacy' without Matt Damon or, for that matter, a character named Bourne. That the movie turned out as well as it has is a tribute to co-writer and director Tony Gilroy (who worked on all three previous films in the series) and Jeremy Renner, who i...

    The Campaign—movie review

    'The Campaign' has a lot of genuine laughs. Too bad it doesn’t have enough to carry it over the finish line, a mere 85 minutes after it begins.

    Review: Spike Lee Reconnects With His Artistic Voice With The Emotionally Devastating 'Red Hook Summer'

    It’s hard to say how long it’s been since Spike Lee was as ambitious, and as focused, as he is on “Red Hook Summer.” Telling a story that evokes “Crooklyn” in its depiction of children coming of age, filtered through two subsequent decades of his professional succ...

    Review - 'Red Hook Summer' (An Attempt To Make Sense Of Spike Lee's Trip To Wonderland)

    Well, after first seeing the film at the Sundance Film Festival in January, I wrote a lengthy piece sharing my many reactions to what I saw then; skip ahead almost 8 months later, when I saw the revised cut of the film at a press screening about 2 weeks ago, and, despite it being 15 minutes shorter,...

    Masterful Fishing Doc 'Leviathan' Presents a Fresh Take on the Nature Documentary Form

    There are moments in "Leviathan" so breathtaking that it's easy to forget they're also familiar. The movie could take place on another planet; instead, it peers at this one from a jarring and entirely fresh point of view.

    Locarno Review: Lovely, Powerful Fine Art Tribute 'Museum Hours' Finds Jem Cohen Successfully Transitioning to Narrative Form

    To date, Jem Cohen has made intimate non-fiction diary films rooted in an attentiveness to atmosphere and riddled with small observations rendered in profound terms. While his new feature "Museum Hours" is technically his first narrative effort, with a pair of amateur performances and the ...

    Review: 'Goats' Is An Unexceptional, Overly Familiar Coming-Of-Age Tale

    As far as quirky coming of age stories engineered for festivals and the twee aspiring directors who love them go, “Goats” is a fine little movie.
