    REVIEW | A Black Comedy with Patience: Cristi Puiu's "Aurora"

    A slow burn thriller taken to the extreme, Cristi Puiu's "Aurora" continues the Romanian writer-director's obsession with time as his main narrative device. Whereas Puiu previously applied a patient, naturalistic approach to the final day of a dying man in 2005's "The Death of Mr. Lazarescu," his new three-hour opus studies a dead man walking: Stepping in front of the camera, Puiu plays a weary, isolated divorcee named Viorel, whose frustrations with his ex-wife and her family eventually lead him to commit a series of murders. Beyond his crimes, not much happens, and that's the point. Puiu constructs Viorel's gradual downfall as a purposefull...

    LAFF REVIEW | "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" Remakes the Original, Minus Most of the Frights

    John Newland's 1973 made-for-TV drama "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" is widely considered a high water mark for feature-length broadcast productions. Produced as an ABC movie of the week, it belonged to a series that also included Steven Spielberg's "Duel" and the early Michael Douglas vehicle "Shatt...

    movie review: CARS 2

    I have such high regard for Pixar and its creative team, led by John Lasseter, that it actually hurts to knock one of their movies—something I’ve never done before. But then, I’ve never gotten a headache watching any of their previous films. Despite

    movie review: Bad Teacher
