    'The Master' Review: Egotists and the Cultists Who Love Them

    With its expansive 70 mm images, The Master almost pounces on you as it announces its epic scope and ambition – even though the impressive vistas of the sea don’t have anything to do with the heart of the film. In its intelligent, chilly essence, Paul Thomas Anderson’s film is...

    Review: 'Masquerade' Is Only A Somewhat Convincing View Of Hypothetical History

    When King Gwang-hae ruled over Korea, landowners were the only ones taxed, and peasants and middle-class citizens suffered under his rule. But there’s a sliver of that moment in time where, during his eighth year of ruling, his policies changed, favoring the commoner over aristocracy, honoring the s...

    Weekend Preview: Eastwood's 'Trouble,' Gyllenhaal's 'Watch' & 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower'

    Among the many new releases arriving this weekend, David Ayer's visceral, you-are-there LA cop drama "End of Watch" boasts outstanding performances from Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena, which may or may not support Open Road's ultra-wide (2800) theater break.

    Review: 'War Of The Buttons' Feels Like An Early '90s Miramax Reject

    It’s World War II, and France faces a hostile Nazi occupation. You wouldn’t know it from the children, however, as “War of the Buttons” uses the war as a macro-micro contrast with the tale of a group of youths protecting their territory from a group of would-be mini-hooligans.

    All of the promotional materials for the woeful new horror film "House at the End of the Street" promote it as your standard cheap-o chiller – a plucky blonde with a fondness for clingy cotton T-shirts, Jennifer Lawrence is doggedly menaced by backwoods psychos after leaving her urban upbringing for...
