    'Justified,' and 'Southland' Finales: Meet Hardboiled Director Don Siegel

    Watching the final few episodes of "Justified" (which ended its season this week) as well as "Southland" and the more pretentious "The Killing," I found myself thinking about Don Siegel, the mid-century hardboiled director whose films epitomized an unpretentious, corrosive vein of American cinema.

    Of all the restorations being touted at this weekend's third annual TCM Classic Film Festival, the one I'm most excited about is "Two for the Road," screening Friday at the Chinese (with a guest appearance by director Stanley Donen).

    The Secrets of Monsieur Lazhar

    Monsieur Lazhar may have lost the Best Foreign Language Oscar to A Separation – I can’t argue with that; A Separation is extraordinary – but if any film could have given it a real challenge, it might have been this unexpectedly powerful, subtle little film from Canada: exquisi...

    The Cabin In The Woods—movie review

    Everybody likes to be in on an inside joke, but so many horror films have hopped onto the bandwagon of self-awareness that the joke itself may be getting tired. If anyone could reinvigorate the concept, it’s Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, and that’s what these savvy collaborators try to d...

    The Three Stooges—movie review

    First, the good news: this is a heartfelt homage to The Three Stooges of yore, and its leading actors do a remarkable job of channeling Moe, Larry and Curly.
