    REVIEW | "Life, Above All" Suffers from a Conventional Plot, But Newcomer Khomotso Manyaka Saves It

    Although loaded with dramatic consequence, "Life, Above All" is slight. Set in the outskirts of Johannesburg, the movie follows a young girl faced with a broken family and communal rejection. Her transition from pariah to fierce young adult energizes the story with emotional resonance, but director ...

    REVIEW | Why "Daylight" Does the Home Invasion Genre Proud

    The home invasion thriller is a genre that typically engages with issues of class and human instinct. In first-rate examples like "Funny Games" and the recent Spanish entry "Kidnapped," a small group of captives face off against their oppressors under exceedingly frightening circumstances, and the s...

    REVIEW | Weird, Familiar and Out of Control: Errol Morris's "Tabloid"

    The enjoyably wacky scenario of Errol Morris's "Tabloid" is cookie-cutter material for the documentarian, but Morris wields his cookie cutter like a pro. Doing penance for the grim, sterile polemics of "Standard Operating Procedure," Morris bounces back with the sort of phenomenally surreal weird-bu...

    movie review: Zookeeper

    Kevin James has developed an irresistible screen persona as a nice-guy/underdog, which has served him well in some pretty mediocre films like Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
