    movie review: The Adjustment Bureau

    I’m a sucker for movies about fate, destiny, and heavenly intervention—going all the way back to On Borrowed Time and Here Comes Mr. Jordan up through Ghost Town with Ricky Gervais—so I was more than willing to accept the premise of The Adjustment Bureau, based on Philip K. Dick...

    REVIEW | "I Saw the Devil" is Bloody Good Revenge

    "Severely Damaged Souls" -- the title of a retrospective on the work of Korean director Kim Ji-woon currently running at the Brooklyn Academy of Music easily describes the two deranged characters at the heart of his latest feature, "I Saw the Devil." The BAM program derives its name from the language used by Korean censors when trying to justify their decision to remove about 90 gruesome seconds from this tense serial killer story. Alleging that a mere seven shots "severely damage the dignity of human values," the censors' efforts are not only misguided but hilariously ineffectual. Lifting that bit of material from this nearly two-and-a-half ...

    REVIEW | Claude Lanzmann Revisits Jan Karski in "The Karski Report"

    A single interview unfolding more or less in real time, "The Karski Report," a 49-minute cinematic essay cribbed from the cutting room floor of Claude Lanzmann's sprawling 1985 documentary "Shoah," imbues one monologue with tremendous historical weight. Having previously aired on French television, ...

    REVIEW | Impenetrable Fantasy: "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives"

    Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul has made a career out of directing movies that seem like dense visual riddles, matching poetry with mysterious cinematic designs. However, while his earlier features often felt primarily energizing as intellectual exercises rather than creative pursuits, his l...

    REVIEW | A Work In Progress: James Franco and Gus Van Sant's "Unfinished"

    James Franco's ubiquity may finally have reached its saturation point this past weekend. Within the same frenzied 48-hour period there was his Independent Spirit Award win for "127 Hours;" an Oscar co-hosting gig; and a third, less-visible achievement: Saturday was the opening of "Unfinished," his c...

    REVIEW | Belgian Septuagenarians Get Jiggy in "The Over the Hill Band"

    Blending sass and pathos, the Belgian comedy "The Over the Hill Band" ("Meisjes") has a neatly conceived premise. Like Stephen Walker's delicate nonfiction portrait "Young@Heart," it's a genuine heart-tugger about senior citizens rediscovering their youth by singing pop music; like Craig Brewer's cr...

    REVIEW | A Quiet Test of Faith in "Of Gods and Men"

    From its early scenes, "Of Gods and Men" inhabits the sacred lives of its monastic subjects. The eight monks residing in a seemingly quaint North African mountain community go through the motions of their daily prayers, the ritualistic hymns echoing monotonously throughout their hallowed chambers. P...
