    Review: 'The Taste Of Money' Is A Deliciously Diabolical Domestic Melodrama From South Korea

    Thanks to the recession and the growing divide between the very rich and the extremely poor, along with the volcanic if somewhat ineffectual Occupy movement, the inner lives of those in power have become even more fascinating and dastardly. In "The Taste of Money," the newest film from largely unsun...

    Sundance Review Roundup: 'Blue Caprice' an Eerie Thriller Exploring the 2002 Beltway Snipers

    Critics are raving about Sundance NEXT section entry "Blue Caprice," directed by Alexandre Moors and based on the 2002 sniper attacks in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia. The film is an "eerie, disquieting, veritie-style exploration" of the killers' psychologies, while refusing any easy thrill...

    Review: 'Supporting Characters' Is A Middling Movie, But A Decent Would-Be Pilot Episode For A Show We Might Watch

    What fascinates about “Supporting Characters,” the new relationship comedy premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, is that its greatest strength also registers as its most notable weakness. This decidedly Noo Yawk tale of an editing team in New York City and their satellite friends would be at home...

    Sundance Review: 'In A World...' A Low-Key Charmer & Promising Directorial Debut For Lake Bell

    One of the worst things you could say about a comedy is usually that it has a wide appeal. The most interesting comedies are the ones that tend to be hyper-specific, focused on an insular world of some kind (think '70s newsrooms in “Anchorman” or '80s summer camp in “Wet Hot American Summer”), while...

    Review: 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' Isn't Boring, But It Is Unrelentingly Stupid

    Do you want the good news first or the bad news? Let’s start with the good. Firstly, “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” is less than 90 minutes long. That’s good. Also, Gemma Arterton is really pretty and wears a lot of awesome leather pants and gloves and vests and things. Those are also good. The ti...

    Review: 'Movie 43' Strains For Laughs With Uninspired Collection Of Comedy Shorts

    What is there to say, analytically, about “Movie 43”? Not released in theaters as much as inexplicably materializing in front of our very eyes, “Movie 43” has no moral, no overarching story, and no point other than the opportunity for Hollywood stars to play silly for a short...

    Review: 'Parker' Is A Visually Indistinguishable, Punishingly Violent, And Painfully Inert Pulp Trifle

    The character of Parker is one of those icons of hard-boiled pulp fiction – a smart alecky bruiser created by legendary novelist Donald Westlake (under his Richard Stark nom de plume), who appeared in over a dozen novels, a handful of cinematic adaptations (most notably portrayed by Lee Marvin in "P...

    Sundance Review: How 'V/H/S' Sequel 'S-VHS' Shows That Brutal Horror Can Be Fun

    Last year's anthology horror production "V/H/S" was a revelation mainly because it took the overly familiar found footage genre and exploited it to the fullest extent. The sequel, "S-VHS," achieves a similar goal with more frightening extremes. Containing only four spectacularly gory shorts directed...

    Sundance Review: Stripper Comedy 'Afternoon Delight' Plays Rough But Will Leave You With A Smile On Your Face

    The premise of “Afternoon Delight,” admittedly, does not sound terribly appealing: to spice up their sex life, a Silverlake couple goes for a night out at a gentleman’s club and subsequently take in a stripper in need of help. From that logline alone you can glean that their relatively buttoned-up s...
