    movie review: THOR

    Thor is a comic-book superhero movie with a split personality. There is weighty drama in the Kingdom of Asgard, while the tone of the film becomes flippant and funny when it lands on Earth. The end result is fairly enjoyable but easily forgettable, because neither aspect of the story completely t...

    REVIEW | "Caterpillar" Makes Horror Out of Wartime Propaganda

    Acclaimed Japanese director Koji Wakamatsu's latest feature, "Caterpillar," breaks down the notion of wartime bravery by disabling it. Working from a short story (one that was banned in 1939 by Japanese censors) by Edogawa Rampo, Wakamatsu achieves this with a haunting physical manifestation: an inj...

    REVIEW | "Beautiful Darling" Recalls the Distinct Allure of a Warhol Superstar

    Candy Darling, the transexual bombshell featured in several Andy Warhol movies, two Velvet Underground songs and one Tennessee Williams play, inhabited the precise fantasy she created for herself. That's argument put forth by director James Rasin in "Beautiful Darling," a straightforward biographical survey of the Warhol superstar's unique appeal, which only faded with her premature death from lymphoma at the age of 29. With a mixture of talking heads and diary entries, Rasin tracks Darling from her early childhood as James Slattery in Queens to her presence at the center of New York counterculture in the late sixties and early seventies. Amo...

    REVIEW | Why "Hobo with a Shotgun" Is Such Wacky Fun

    The selling point of "Hobo with a Shotgun" is its primal appeal. No less than D.W. Griffith allegedly deemed a girl and a gun as the minimum requirements for any engrossing movie formula. "Hobo" has both, plus ample doses of exagerrated gore, a faded eighties action star, and the giddy, unfocused en...

    REVIEW | Megan Fox, Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray Lose Direction in Awful "Passion Play"

    When "Passion Play" premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, it became the object of instant derision. Variety pointed out the "near-painful hipness," while Screen deemed it "little more than a whimsical curio." The bad buzz snowballed into the imminent release of "Passion ...

    REVIEW | Despite A Loony Mel Gibson, "The Beaver" Is a Tame Dramatic Affair

    Despite a ludicrous set-up based around one of the most outlandish performances of Mel Gibson's career, "The Beaver" is a tame, leisurely drama that neither provides the beleaguered actor with decisive comeback material nor further muddies his tarnished image. As directed by Jodie Foster from the sc...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | What Edward Burns' "Newlyweds" Says About the Future of Cheap Movies

    An ultralight excursion into the urban neuroses of the Woody Allen canon, Edward Burns' 10th feature, "Newlyweds," is a slight relationship comedy that constitutes more of a doodle than a full-fledged movie. Following a small ensemble of characters through a variety of conversations about the ups an...
