    Review: Ulrich Seidl’s ‘Paradise: Love’ A Difficult But Provocative Watch With An Astounding Central Performance

    Black/white, rich/poor, fat/thin, female/male, old/young -- these are just a few of the dichotomies explored in the first of the 'Paradise' trilogy from Austrian director Ulrich Seidl. Our chronology is a bit messed up, since we already reviewed (very favorably) the second entry “Paradise: Faith” ou...

    Pain & Gain

    What burns me up about "Pain & Gain" is that the trailer, and even the excerpts shown on TV, make it look like fun.

    A Voyage Worth Taking: Kon-Tiki

    Thor Heyerdahl made history by traveling nearly 5,000 miles on a balsa-wood raft in 1947. His book about the adventure sold more than 50 million copies worldwide, and his subsequent 1951 documentary earned an Oscar.

    The Reluctant Fundamentalist

    Having made a number of movies dealing with cultural identity, Mira Nair was an obvious choice to direct the screen adaptation of Mohsin Hamid’s critically acclaimed novel "The Reluctant Fundamentalist," even though she is Indian and the film is rooted in Pakistan.

    At Any Price

    It actually hurts to write this review, as I’ve been a booster of Ramin Bahrani’s work from the moment I saw his debut feature "Man Push Cart."

    Tribeca Review: 'The Machine' Is A Fastball Down The Middle For Genre Die-Hards

    Even though science fiction allows for the widest possibility of storytelling, it often seems like there are really only three or four sci-fi stories, and they stopped creating them after the eighties.

    Review: Overstuffed 'Love Is All You Need' An Unsatisfying, Predictable Rom-Com From Susanne Bier

    What’s up with those crazy Danish filmmakers and their compulsion to pile it on? The latest from Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier (“In A Better World”) is like watching a long game of Jenga.

    There’s a certain expectation that comes with attending a horror-comedy with a ridiculously on-the-nose title. And in that respect, “Fresh Meat” delivers on its promise as a deliriously off-the-wall splatterfest with absolutely zero pretension. You could guess that Kiwi director Danny Mulheron was a...
