    REVIEW | Buck Brannaman, Horse Therapist, in "Buck"

    Buck Brannaman, the subject of Cindy Meehl's engaging documentary profile "Buck," has a warm presence and knows how to tame horses better than anyone else. That's the simplest encapsulation of the movie's thesis, although the subtext runs much deeper than that. Beaten by his demanding father as a ch...

    SIFF REVIEW: "Holy Rollers" Follows Christian Card Sharks

    There's a fascinating paradox at the heart of "Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians," and it's right there in the title. In Bryan Storkel's new documentary about the Seattle-based "Church Team" of blackjack players, which premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival this past weekend, players work the system with cunning skill and rake in the dough. At the same time, they make bold claims about the purity of their work and rebuff assumptions that it runs counter to their religion. Storkel makes as little effort to resolve the issue as the players do, giving "Holy Rollers" an intriguingly ambiguous outlook. Whether...

    Media Frenzy: Andrew Rossi's "Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times"

    SIFF REVIEW | A Bromance With Old People: Taylor Guterson's "Old Goats"

    In the first few minutes of Taylor Guterson's "Old Goats," writer-director Taylor Guterson's debut feature has the appearance of a documentary, mainly because the matching of the scenario and the tone are so unfamiliar in narrative cinema. With an upbeat soundtrack to set the mood, Guterson shows an elderly man discussing his sailing plans to a roomful to peers. Another man only slightly younger begins the narrate the story. The vibe is light and playful. Here's the disconnect: Scripted American movies usually require young faces to please the requisite financiers. "Old Goats" has none of those faces, but it still adopts the familiar mold of ...

    movie review: THE TRIP

    I wasn’t aware of Rob Brydon until I saw Winterbottom’s 2005 movie 'Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story', in which he and Coogan carry on a continual game of one-upmanship, mostly about their careers. I didn’t need a primer to figure out that this was based, to some degree, on their real-life rel...
