    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.

    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 ...
