    Review: 'The Face Of Love' Starring Ed Harris And Annette Bening

    Love can be a terrible thing. Sharing a life with someone, building a home together, getting married, having children and merging identities to near incongruous levels are all part of the sacrificing and lifetime decision-making one does when finding “the one.” Imagine being so entwined with your be...

    SXSW Review: Spierig Brothers 'Predestination' Starring Ethan Hawke

    There seem to be two Ethan Hawkes working in the movies these days, operating in parallel universes. They look the same and sound the same but their choice in movies couldn't be more wildly different. There's the Ethan Hawke, whose warm, naturalistic performances in things like "Boyhood," are amongs...

    SXSW Review: Fantastical 'I Believe In Unicorns' Rings True

    Hitchcock Would've Admired Denis Villeneuve's Creepy Puzzler 'Enemy,' Starring Jake Gyllenhaal

    Cinema sure loves its psychosexually tortured doppelgangers. If Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" were remade and recast with Jake Gyllenhaal as a gloomy professor in place of Natalie Portman's psycho ballerina, it might look something like Denis Villeneuve's "Enemy," a nifty bit of murky fun rife wit...

    SXSW Review: Madcap Murder Mystery 'Wild Canaries'
