    movie review: City Of Life And Death

    Chinese filmmaker Chuan Lu has tackled a vast and ambitious subject in City of Life and Death. I knew very little about the siege on Nanjing (or Nanking, as Westerners have long referred to it) in 1937; I feel as if I understand it now, in all of its grim reality. A documentary might provide...

    Critical Consensus: "Page One" Narrowly Tops "Buck" In Strong Weekend For New Docs

    For the second time in the three month history of this weekly column, a documentary has topped criticWIRE as the pick of the week (though the first incidence, Clio Barnard's "The Arbor," blurred the lines between documentary and narrative filmmaking). More over, it was actually a very tight race between two documentaries Andrew Rossi's "Page One: A Year Inside The New York Times," and Cindy Meehl's "Buck." Both premieres at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, the former works as a fly inside the walls of The New York Times, while the latter takes on a living legend in the horse world, Buck Brannaman, who was the inspiration for "The Horse Whispe...

    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"

    Andrew Rossi’s “Page One: A Year Inside The New York Times” takes a conventional verité approach to the one topic that virtually everyone today has an opinion on. Turning his cameras to the inner circle of editorial decision-making at the proverbial paper of record, Ros...
