Handsome, forceful, and compelling, Washington drives “Blue Caprice,” a new drama that chronicles the D.C.-wide sniper shootings of 2002. As John Allen Muhamm...

    Review: Catherine Hardwicke's Musical Murder Mystery Melodrama 'Plush' With Emily Browning & Cam Gigandet

    The first five minutes of "Plush," the new musical murder mystery from Catherine Hardwicke (who started the "Twilight" franchise with a bang, before getting shoved to the side for a succession of anonymous filmmakers), are misleading in a pretty profound way. In this introductory sequence, an unseen...

    Review: 'GMO OMG' Is A Personal Journey Into The Food Industry

    There are moments in “GMO OMG” that feel a little bit like “Jaws” and “Psycho.” What those films did for the beach and the shower, this documentary from Jeremy Seifert could do for the grocery store for those who are easily persuaded.

    Review: 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby': 'Him' & 'Her' -- Does the Gimmick Work?

    While technically a three-hour immersion into the experience of a young New York couple dealing with the fallout of their infant child's death, "Eleanor Rigby" -- the original version, anyway -- actually takes the form of two feature-length accounts.

    TIFF 2013 Review - Biyi Bandele’s Adaptation Of 'Half Of A Yellow Sun' Misses The Mark

    Before it even went into production, writer-director Biyi Bandele’s debut feature Half of a Yellow Sun sparked a huge casting debate.

    Review: Luc Besson's 'The Family' Starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer & Tommy Lee Jones

    The term “dark comedy” used to mean a film or program that dealt with laughs but also discomforting adult situations and themes.
