    Animation, Old And New

    Whatever your taste in animation, a handful of new DVD and Blu-ray releases offer stimulating and even jubilant experiences. If you like edgy, experimental work I heartily recommend Nine Nation Animation from New Yorker Films, a compilation of recent short subjects that range from the odd to the sub...

    Review: 'London River' A Gentle Current Pain, Anger & Acceptance In The Wake Of Terrorist Attacks

    When Elisabeth (Brenda Blethyn) first hears about the suicide bombings that shook London on July 7, 2005, it's from her television set a world away in Guernsey. Among the pastoral setting of her farm, the events that are happening miles away seem even more horrific and unbelievable, but her shoc...

    Review: Forget Your Heart: 'New Year's Eve' Just Wants Your Money

    If you've managed to make it through two hours of "New Year's Eve" with the idea that it's about anything more than box office returns and home entertainment bank, Warner Bros., New Line and director Garry Marshall are more than happy to set you straight. In a largely unfunny s...

    African Diaspora International Film Fest 2012 - Review Of Psychodrama "David is Dying"

    When I think of a character being diagnosed with a terminal illness in a movie, especially HIV/AIDS, I think of sorrow. I expect to see the illness take center stage, to spend the rest of the film rooting for the victim to overcome whatever physical and personal obstacles lie ahead, and to weep...

    Three Ways of Watching "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy"

    Screeners of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" recently sent to awards season voters provide the option for subtitles, presumably so American audiences can decipher the British dialect. But some viewers will need more than that to comprehend the serpentine plot of Tomas Alfredson impressively...

    The spy genre, is generally speaking, a euphemism for 'action movie' -- look at the explosions, fistfights and car chases of the Bond films, of the 'Mission: Impossible' series, of the 'Bourne' franchise, none of which have much in the way of actual tradecraft. The business o...

    Review: 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' Provides Worthwhile Thrills In A Disappointingly Unimaginative Package

    “Mission: Impossible” is that rarest of franchises, where it seems unnecessary, or even irrelevant, to compare one installment to another. Because each film was shepherded into existence by a different filmmaker, and in all cases by one branded an “auteur,” they all seem...

    The Best Way To Enjoy 'W.E'? A Madonna Vanity Project.

    "W.E." is less outright bad than underwhelming; if the director were unknown, it would hardly deserve notice. Like her first film, the 2008 "Filth and Wisdom," it suffers from countless storytelling flaws. But where her debut was a bizarre low-budget and blatantly amateur British...
