    Review: 'Attenberg' Is A Strange And Unique Experience

    Thanks to the hard-working welcoming committee of Athina Rachel Tsangari's "Attenberg," we are at first introduced to a white wall, where cracks and stains abound.

    Review: 'Silent House' Manages Some Surrealistic Thrills Inside Some Rigid Technical Restraints

    "Silent House" has a nifty hook – it's being billed as a "real time" (probably not) horror movie filled in a single, unified shot (again: there are eight separate shots, but that's still pretty impressive). In a way it's a stylish extension of the current found footage craze, as we're locked into a ...

    Review: 'John Carter' Is One Long, Muddled, Uninvolving Flashback Made To Set Up A Sequel

    Arriving in theaters on a wave of press that has included much chatter about the film's budget, its reshoots and the expectations Disney has on the project, "John Carter" is not your ordinary tentpole in more ways than one. Rarely do films meet this kind of scrutiny on the way to the t...

    Review: 'Holy Rollers' A Compelling Doc About A Group Of Blackjack Playing Christians

    The word of the Bible versus its actual intent has been the manna for religious leaders and their followers for hundreds, if not thousands of years. The result has been interpretations that run the gamut from the radical, to the conservative to the open-ended. But for most Christians, their concerns...

    Art Doc 'Convento' is Hallucinogenic, No Drugs Required

    Jarred Alterman's "Convento" is a documentary about art, but it's also an art object. Profiling a trio of creatively inclined relatives holed up in a centuries-old monastery in southeastern Portugal, Alterman showcases their ominous, mystifying and hugely innovative work by reflect...

    'Attenberg' Is the Death Drama That 'The Descendants' Haters Will Love

    It might seem unfair to compare Greek director Athina Rachel Tsangari's innovative sophomore feature "Attenberg" to Alexander Payne's "The Descendants." The latter is a polished Hollywood excursion starring one of the most famous actors in the world, while "Attenberg...

    'The Walking Dead' Episode 4 Review: 'Judge, Jury, Executioner'

    Project X—movie review

    So, is this merely an extreme teenage version of The Hangover, or is it another sign of the end of civilization as we know it? How you feel about Project X will have a lot to do with your age and gender. If I were a hormonally charged 16-year-old boy, I might think it was...
