    Review: ‘The Master’ Proves A Brave, Sensual Yet Detached Triumph For Paul Thomas Anderson

    Even amongst its most wrenching scenes of unfettered anger and broken loyalty, a volatile sensuality nonetheless invades every frame of Paul Thomas Anderson’s arresting “The Master.” Populated by characters certain in their sexual and loving instincts yet stubborn in claiming responsibility for them...

    Sparkle—movie review

    I don’t think anyone going to see 'Sparkle' expects a gritty slice of realism or a life-altering experience.

Laika, the studio that gave us 'Coraline', is responsible for this tale, which assumes that kids will get the “joke” and not be distressed by its macabre ...

It opens theatrically today in Los Angeles, with New York and other cities to fol...

    'Cosmopolis,' Beyond the RPatz Publicity Tour (Review)

    Whatever David Cronenberg thought he was doing while making Cosmopolis, he could never have imagined the most relevent cultural nerve it would hit: the film has become the inadvertent cause of Robert Pattinson’s first post-KStew publicity tour. (If you missed Pattinson’s appearance ...

    Review: Disappointing 'Robot & Frank' Is High Concept Sci-Fi That's Low On Ideas

    In recent years, Sundance has been hit with a handful of smart science fiction films tackling large themes within an extremely limited scope. From the $7,000 “Primer” to the $5 million “Moon,” their respective filmmakers managed to put forth some interesting ideas without being hindered creatively b...

    Review: 'Painted Skin: The Resurrection' Spotlights Imaginative Special Effects In Derivative Story

    Today’s generation of filmgoers and filmmakers forget that at the very heart of the first cinematic techniques known as “special effects,” there was a shade of mystery and mysticism as well. This otherworldliness made visual sleight of hand seem like an extra-sensory experience, allowing films to tr...
