    Review: Heady & Complex, 'The Bourne Legacy' Is A Fresh & Exciting Expansion Of The Franchise

    Review: Gilroy's 'The Bourne Legacy' Delivers, Thanks to Renner

    I was looking forward to "The Bourne Legacy" more than most studio sequels that have lost their signature director and star. That's because Universal turned to writer-director Tony Gilroy to reinvent the "Bourne" franchise without Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon, who became a movie star playing the t...

    Locarno Review: With an Impressively Creepy Turn by Toby Jones, 'Berberian Sound Studio' Is an Enticing Audiovisual Enigma

    While the closest point of comparison for Strickland's eerie audiovisual thriller is Francis Ford Coppola's "The Conversation," its later scenes shift to Hitchcockian mode.

    This summer has been full of big, glitzy animated movies from most of the major studios that have made tons of money but left audiences cold. None of them were particularly imaginative, entertaining or emotionally involving, instead choosing to coast on a steady stream of solid (if not exactly dazzl...

    While we pore over the latest Sight & Sound film critics poll of the Top 50 Movies of all time, it's not surprising that most of the films are directed by men. The notable exception is Chantal Akerman's "Jeanne Dielman," which I saw in college but barely remember. On the other ...
