    Critic's Notebook: Is Barack Obama a Bigger Movie Star Than Brad Pitt?

    Obama often invokes Ronald Reagan as both a communicator and a pragmatic political actor skilled in leading executive compromise, but their presentational modes couldn't be more different. So what does "Killing Them Softly" have to say about the recently re-elected president?

    Hitchcock

    If you love movies, 'Hitchcock' is hard to resist. It paints an evocative picture of Hollywood and the methodology of filmmaking, circa 1960, while offering juicy roles to Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, two of the finest actors on the planet.

    Review: 'The Rolling Stones Under Review 1975-1983' A Compelling Examination Of An Overlooked Era

    As The Rolling Stones tumble into their fiftieth year, it's easy to be cynical about the aging band, as they desperately try to stay relevant, even as rock 'n roll has evolved and moved on. Oh sure, nostalgia will sell out stadiums, as will the fact that they are living legends, but it's...

    Review: Mini-Budget Superhero Story 'Alter Egos' Falls Short Of Creating A Distinct Mythology

    Kudos to those who want to establish their own superhero mythology in 2012. The storytelling has evolved beyond the echoes of Greek myth since Superman burst upon the scene in the 1930s, to the point where thousands of these characters have existed in multiple mediums.

    Silver Linings Playbook

    It’s rare to find a mainstream American movie that doesn’t rely on formula to some degree. That’s one reason David O.

At a time in the world when religion can be so devisive, Martel's story of a Hindu/Christian/Muslim who is the sole human survivor of an ocean shipwreck reminds that film can both heal and inspire. But it is also a stunning tech...

    Review: ‘Hitchcock’ A Breezy, Disposable Effort Saved By Anthony Hopkins & Helen Mirren’s Dedicated Performances

    Hypnotic, beautiful, and perilous in equal measure – one needn’t glance anywhere else but at the leading ladies of Alfred Hitchcock’s films to garner their intense influence. Yet as dramatized in “Anvil!” director Sacha Gervasi’s loving biopic, “Hitchcock,” the real authority lingered off the set at...
