    L.A. Rebellion 2011 Retrospective Review - Larry Clark's "Passing Through"

    There are two filmmakers named Larry Clark, and this is NOT about the Larry Clark whose ephebophiliac imagination has given us films like Kids, Bully, and Wassup Rockers! Just so we’re clear, this Larry Clark is Black, a Cleveland native who went to UCLA along with Charles Burnett, Julie ...

    Review: 'The Sitter' Is A Rough, But Absurdist Romp & Serves As a Natural End Point For David Gordon Green's Comedy Exploration

    SIMON SAYS: THE SITTER, blah blah, balls on fire

    This is it, folks: David Gordon Green isn’t the guy that made George Washington and All the Real Girls anymore. Now, he’s the guy that made Pineapple Express and Your Highness. Which is a transition that doesn’t really deserve an award or a hearty handshake or even much praise really. But for the sa...

    Roger Corman, Major Artist: 'Corman's World' Makes the Case

    Roger Corman has maintained a reputation as the B-movie master for half a century, but it's a distinction that has come at the cost of wider appreciation. "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" looks to counter that conclusion by exploring Corman's influence on contemp...

    Young Adult

    I heart Young Adult.  I heart it because it is an awesome and original story.  I heart it because Charlize Theron hits it out of the park as the horribly bitchy Mavis a woman stuck in her high school self because that was when she was queen.  You know when you look at the male footbal...
