    REVIEW | Raúl Ruiz's "Mysteries of Lisbon" Has Plenty of Intrigue -- But Enough for 4 1/2 Hours?

    Almost everything written about Chliean-born director Raúl Ruiz discusses the prolific nature of his career -- at last count, over 100 features in addition to scholarly texts and other projects -- and how it's almost impossible to absorb it all. Ruiz's transnational filmography is all over the place...

    REVIEW | "Bellflower" Provides Phenomenal Showcase for Newcomer Evan Glodell

    Fandom is an ailment for the two young leads in "Bellflower," the directorial debut of Evan Glodell. A scrappy drama that takes several bizarre turns, the movie revolves around a pair of happy-go-lucky guys obsessed with the post-apocalyptic universe of "Mad Max." Spending their days jacking around,...

    REVIEW | "Gun Hill Road" Deserves the Buzz That Went to "Pariah" at Sundance

    With an opening-night slot and a bidding war won by Focus Features, the black teen coming-out saga "Pariah" was among the 2011 Sundance Film Festival's hits. However, that fervor buried the superior accomplishments of another Sundance entry with markedly similar ingredients: Rashad Ernesto Green's ...

    Critic's Notebook | There Are Three Versions of "The Interrupters," But Only One Movie. Here's Why.

    When Steven James first premiered "The Interrupters," his compelling look at activists working to prevent Chicago street violence, the initial reaction at the Sundance Film Festival was uniformly positive. The indomitable buzz machine reported that the "Hoop Dreams" co-director had made another galvanizing portrait of inner city struggles, this one based on a New York Times Magazine article by Alex Kotlowitz. Following the travails of CeaseFire Interrupters, a group predominantly composed of former gang members talking sense to their hotheaded brethren, "The Interrupters" explored a world of dangerous conflict and heroic redemption by combini...

    Cowboys & Aliens: movie review

    As its title indicates, this is a strange cross of movie genres, and lest any viewers get antsy, it doesn’t allow much time to pass before we first encounter UFOs in the Old West. The film takes its time unraveling the rest of the story, leading us along a trail with no clear destination in sight, a...

    Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    When a movie opens with a woman telling her husband that she wants a divorce after twenty-five years of marriage and it isn’t played for laughs, you know you’re not in for a “typical” Hollywood comedy. Given the current state of comedy, that’s not necessarily a ...

    The Guard

    This movie made me smile and even laugh out loud. In fact, it gave me more pleasure than any aliens, robots or superheroes have all summer. That’s because it’s doggedly offbeat and completely original. It also provides a showcase for two fine actors, Brendan Gleeson and Don Chead...

    Franco Zeffirelli's 1979 boxing tearjerker "The Champ" has officially been named "the saddest movie of all time", not by an internet poll, but rather by a 23-year scientific study by psychologists Robert Levinson and James Gross as noted in Smithsonian.
