    Review: Woody Allen's ‘Blue Jasmine’ Starring Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin & Sally Hawkins

    Like clockwork, the prodigious workaholic Woody Allen releases a movie each year. And every 12 months, there is the temptation to compare Allen’s latest with his past works, given that they tend to have formed a 31 flavors-like distinction over the last five decades. There’s the more recent trend to...

    Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” features a knock-down, drag-out performance by Cate Blanchett as an emotionally frayed housewife who, through a series of trying betrayals, is all washed up.

    Juan Andrés Arango's La Playa D.C. is a familiar tale wrapped in different packaging, we could say, which speaks to the commonly-held belief that, once you strip away what lies at the surface of any work of film art, and get to its core, you'll find themes that are universal.

    First Reviews of 'The Wolverine'

    The Matter-of-Fact Multiculturalism of 'Turbo'

    The reviews for Turbo, DreamWorks' animated tale of a snail with a dream to race in the Indy 500, are in, and for the most part, well, "lukewarm" would be overselling them. As City Weeklys Scott Renshaw put it on Twitter, "Turbo strives for nothing, says nothing, accomplishes nothing. It's not 'bad....

    Review: Harrowing 'Act of Killing' Is the Most Unsettling Movie About Mass Murder Since 'Shoah'

    In Joshua Oppenheimer's "The Act of Killing," a pair of gangsters responsible for murdering an untold number of suspected communists in the years following the 1965 overthrow of the Indonesian government get the chance to recount their experiences. At first showing no visible remorse, the men boast ...

    REVIEW: Dreamworks "Turbo"

    Turbo plays like a mash-up of Ratatouille, Cars and Breaking Away. It isn’t a bad film, but it feels very, very familiar, even on the first viewing.
