    Review: 'Why Stop Now?' A Compelling, But Not Always Fulfilling Comedy

    There’s not a whole lot of forward momentum in “Why Stop Now?” which is a surprise considering the immediacy-baiting title. Though the film takes place within the span of one day, the narrative feels truncated, allowing for connections to form, and then sever, over the course of twenty-four hours. I...

    Locarno Review: Markus Imhoof's Insightful "More Than Honey" Concerns a Lot More Than Bees in Crisis

    Markus Imhoof's "More Than Honey" makes a convincing argument for the role of bees sustaining both organic and industrial concerns, not to mention their own complex set of behaviors. Facing crises that threaten to impact their existence as well as various marketplaces that rely on thei...

    Locarno Review: Joao Pedro Rodrigues and Joao Rui Geurrea da Mata Probe Post-Colonial History With 'The Last Time I Saw Macao'

    A provocative cinematic poem in the tradition of the late Chris Marker, "The Last Time I Saw Macao" valiantly attempts to dissect an entire metropolitan history. Perhaps because it aims so big, not every fragment connects, but Portuguese co-directors Joao Pedro Rodrigues and Joao Rui Guerr...

    The Bourne Legacy—movie review

    It takes chutzpah to make a film called 'The Bourne Legacy' without Matt Damon or, for that matter, a character named Bourne. That the movie turned out as well as it has is a tribute to co-writer and director Tony Gilroy (who worked on all three previous films in the series) and Jeremy Renner, who i...

The biggest mystery to me is how experienced comedy hands, on both sides of the camera, can allow their movie to end with a punchline joke that doesn’t get ...

    Review: Spike Lee Reconnects With His Artistic Voice With The Emotionally Devastating 'Red Hook Summer'
