    REVIEW | Generation in Action: The Social Mores of "The Social Network"

    The persona of Mark Zuckerberg depicted by Jesse Eisenberg in David Fincher's "The Social Network" is equal parts parts Ferris Bueller and Sammy Glick. Like Bueller, Zuckerberg lives his life free from any rules except his own. He replaces Bueller's charisma with pure stamina, however, reflecting Gl...

    Music Worth Hearing—And Seeing

    I love music almost as much as I love movies. That’s why I start every morning with a visit to Tin Pan Alley at www.youtube.com/user/petermintunmusic, where the gifted pianist, singer and musicologist Peter Mintun offers “A Different Tune Each Day.” I’ve also had some wonderful experiences in recent months watching DVDs that celebrate a wide variety of music I happen to like. These documentaries and performance videos don’t have marketing muscle behind them, so they depend on loyal followers and word-of-mouth. That’s why I’m happy to recommend them here, in the hope that I can expand that audience ...

    Toronto Fest in Rewind: The Highs, the Lows and the Overlooked

    "We don't talk much about faith at film festivals," said Cameron Bailey, co-director of the Toronto International Film Festival, from a podium last week. The assertion was a neat segue into his introduction for "The Way," Emilio Estevez's semi-spiritual drama about a father coping with the loss of h...

    REVIEW | Leaving New York Again, Woody Allen Does Fine with "Stranger"

    With each new movie Woody Allen directs, it grows increasingly clear that leaving New York was the best decision he made in ages. Two years ago, Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" freed the quintessentially neurotic comic from his out-of-touch depictions of American urbanity by letting Spanish flavo...

    Taking Over TIFF: James Gunn's "SUPER" In Focus

    The first big sales story out of the Toronto International Film Festival this year, James Gunn's "SUPER" derives much of its momentum from its positioning at the festival. Premiering in the midnight madness program, the movie operates in a more overt "fun" gear than the majority of that section, whi...

    Toronto Review | A Trip Worth Taking: Emilio Estevez's "The Way"

    The remarkable thing about "The Way" is that it works so much better than it should. Several aspects suggest the makings of a dud: It's a story about spirituality with a protagonist who has none. The plot, in which well-to-do California opthamologist Tom (Martin Sheen) completes a pilgrimage started...

    film review: Never Let Me Go

    I came to this film knowing nothing about it, except that it was based on the highly-acclaimed novel by Kazuo Ishiguru. I had no foreknowledge of its story or premise—and I’m glad.
