    Review: Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring' Starring Emma Watson

    American cinema seems preoccupied with the emptiness of excess, at least in the first half of 2013.

And now comes Sofia ...

    DVD REVIEW: "Adventure Time" Seasons 1 and 2

    Adventure Time is one of those properties that taps right into what its audience is looking for at just the right time. Though there is undoubtedly an adult crossover – and certainly a college student following – Adventure Time nails what I would surmise is its target: children and adolescents.

    L.A. Film Fest Review: Pedro Almodóvar's 'I'm So Excited'

    Upon introducing his latest film, “I’m So Excited” at the opening night of the Los Angeles Film Festival, Pedro Almodovar took care to explain that in Spanish, the title of his film has a double meaning— as he said, “horny.” And yes, the characters aboard his doomed flight are indeed, very, very lib...

    The Bling Ring - Written and Directed by Sofia Coppola

    The Bling Ring may be the most anxiety producing film I have ever seen. I sat raptly watching it with deep concern over the state of young people today. Thankfully, I was with two young women who are interns for the Athena Film Festival, who were by the way also very anxious, and they both assured...

    Sorry, Pedro: 'I'm So Excited' Is Almodóvar's Worst Film

    This movie is a self-indulgent exercise built on a one-joke premise…but it made me laugh from start to finish.
