    Footloose—movie review

    Does the world really need a remake of Footloose? I would answer no, but I must also admit that the new movie is innocuous and pleasant-enough to watch. Writer-director Craig Brewer, who made the disarming Hustle & Flow, has taken Dean Pitchford’s 1984 screenplay and layered onto i...

    REVIEW | "Texas Killing Fields" Is Directed By Michael Mann's Daughter, and Looks Like It

    It might be unfair to read an artist's work on the basis of her lineage, but Ami Canaan Mann is asking for it. Her sophomore effort, "Texas Killing Fields," lives and breathes the hard-crime oxygen of the movies commonly associated with her father, Michael Mann. The younger Mann goes through the mot...

Alma Har'el's directorial debut takes a nonfiction setting and displays its haunting qualities in poetic terms. The small, impoverished community where the movie is set - buried in the heat of the Colorado de...
