    'Attenberg' Is the Death Drama That 'The Descendants' Haters Will Love

    It might seem unfair to compare Greek director Athina Rachel Tsangari's innovative sophomore feature "Attenberg" to Alexander Payne's "The Descendants." The latter is a polished Hollywood excursion starring one of the most famous actors in the world, while "Attenberg...

    Now and Then: From 'Ferris' to 'Sleepover,' Teens, and Times, Have Changed

    "The Myth of the American Sleepover," David Robert Mitchell's independent film about a group of suburban Detroit teens messing around, and messing up, on a single night near the end of summer, is a quiet reminder of the power, and price, of looking.

    'The Walking Dead' Episode 4 Review: 'Judge, Jury, Executioner'

    Perhaps it's because it originally set its own bar too high: “The Walking Dead” was so good out of the gate, such a great mixture of genre and sophistication, that its current episodes feel like a come-down.

    Project X—movie review

    So, is this merely an extreme teenage version of The Hangover, or is it another sign of the end of civilization as we know it? How you feel about Project X will have a lot to do with your age and gender. If I were a hormonally charged 16-year-old boy, I might think it was...

    Is 'The River' Proof That Found Footage Shows Can't Work?

    While I wouldn't describe "The River," which airs Tuesdays at 9pm on ABC, as a particularly good show -- and its wan ratings indicate that most people feel the same way -- it's a great guilty pleasure thanks to the strange contortions it has to go through to keep up its found-...

    Review: Hal Hartley’s ‘Meanwhile’ Continues Dogmatic Pursuit Of Philosophical Truths With A Familiar DIY Aesethetic

    ‘90s indie filmmaker Hal Hartley has made 12 feature-length films, but even ask certain-aged cinephiles and they'll only have a limited grasp of who he is and what his peculiar, chatty and philosophically arch lo-fi serio-comedies are actually about. Normally, one could attribute this...

    Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax—movie review

    Have you noticed that (as often as not) when Hollywood moviemakers stray from their source material they insist on putting the author’s name above the title? To me, this only compounds the offense. No author has suffered more at the hands of Hollywood in recent years than Theodore Geisel, better kno...
