    Review: 'Project X' A Wild Party That Can't Sustain The Buzz

    Despite the plodding narrative veering wildly between stagnant humor and maudlin interjections, Todd Phillips’ "Due Date" demonstrates in one scene both the appeal and increasingly mean-spirited worldview that the filmmaker has traded in following the success of "The Hangover." It comes when Robert ...

    Review: 'The Salt Of Life' Is A Breezy, Charming Comedy About Growing Old

    To be sure, Grampa Simpson would be conflicted with “The Salt of Life.” On the one hand, he’d certainly appreciate that Gianni, the recently retired protagonist of the film, is by no means vibrant or fun loving (even if he is lovable), and he’s clearly a bit resentful and bitter with the natural pas...

    'Being Flynn' Makes a Case For Reading the Book First

    At times, "Being Flynn" is a gorgeous, compelling adaptation of Nick Flynn's gritty memoir, "Another Bullshit Night in Suck City." However, it constantly strains from attempting to do justice to its source. Flynn's experience with his deadbeat dad, a struggling alcoholic ...

    Being Flynn: Yes, De Niro's Still Great

    Being Flynn is a perfectly good title for a film about an aimless young man who works in a Boston homeless shelter, where his long-vanished father turns up one night. But the memoir it is based on has a GREAT title: Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. Despite that loss,  the acerbic, thou...

    Review: 'Last Days Here' An Unsettling, Compelling Look At An Aged Rocker's Final Shot At Stardom

    The subject of "Last Days Here" is an indisputable drug addict, body warped and brain fried by incalculable amounts of crack and heroin.
