    In Time—movie review

    Writer and sometimes-director Andrew Niccol fixates on the future and doesn’t offer a sunny outlook, whether it’s in Gattaca, The Truman Show, or S1m0ne. It should come as no surprise, then, that In Time is yet another trip into the dystopian world of tomorrow, where lifespan has...

    Anonymous—movie review

    There are great moments in Anonymous, from its arresting opening scene (with Derek Jacobi rushing into a Broadway theater and striding directly onstage) to recreations of the first performances ever given of Henry V and Hamlet before a spellbound throng of groundlings. I, too, was captivated...

    REVIEW | "Janie Jones" Is a Familiar Father-Daughter Drama With Rock, But What's Wrong With That?

    The estranged father-daughter relationship is one of those screenplay contrivances that works better than most. Recent examples include "The Wrestler" and Alexander Payne's upcoming "The Descendants," where the family conflict reeks of familiarity but transcends cliché through strong performances an...

    REVIEW | "The Double" Is a Terribly Derivative CIA Thriller, But Richard Gere Nearly Makes It Work

    Richard Gere is an actor who continually resists the easy or obvious, and yet he's far better at choosing characters than projects. In "The Double," he plays Paul Shepherdson, a hardened CIA veteran dedicated to the pursuit of a deadly Soviet assassin dubbed Cassisus, an enigmatic figure whose hidde...
