    REVIEW | "The Troll Hunter" is a Monster of a Mock Doc

    Riffing on the DIY monster-movie approach of "Cloverfield" and the absurd supernatural premise of "Ghostbusters," Norwegian mockumentary "The Troll Hunter" offers high-caliber entertainment despite a low-budget production. The shaky camera suggests "The Blair Witch Project," but writer-director Andr...

    movie review: X-Men: First Class

    It’s risky to reinvent an established series with a new cast and a different setting than fans are accustomed to…but the folks at Marvel have gambled and won. Despite its flaws, X-Men: First Class is an effective reboot of the once-solid series that debuted eleven years ago.

    movie review: Rejoice And Shout

    What I don’t know about gospel music could fill a library, but I’m willing to learn, and the lively documentary called Rejoice and Shout is a perfect tutorial. What’s more,

    movie review: Cameraman: The Life And Work Of Jack Cardiff

    After years of DVD special features, even dedicated buffs may be somewhat blasé about a film that takes us behind the scenes to explore one man’s career…but this is no ordinary documentary, and its subject is no ordinary filmmaker. Jack Cardiff was a remarkable artist who...

    REVIEW | "Film Socialism" Reminds Us Why Godard Still Matters

    Jean-Luc Godard's entire career can seem like an endless attempt to top himself.

    REVIEW | A Gay Dad and a Mid-Life Crisis: Mike Mills's "Beginners"

    The delicate blend of playful drama in "Beginners," the second narrative feature by California-based filmmaker and graphic designer Mike Mills ("Thumbsucker"), is a small wonder to behold. Mills fashions the set-up for an overwrought, thoroughly depressing character study into an oddly charming come...

    REVIEW | "Submarine" Does "Bridesmaids" One Better, With Style to Spare

    In "Submarine," the directorial debut of British comedian Richard Ayoade, newcomer Craig Roberts turns intense discomfort into fine art. Playing the 15-year-old Oliver Tate, Roberts holds his deer-caught-in-headlights stare from start to finish. Equally intent on landing a girlfriend and saving his ...
