    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

    Ansel Roth (Leland Orser) already has plenty of faults—a once-renowned expert on cults, he’s now lost a TV show, a marriage and the rights to his latest book—but he’s looking for one more.

    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'

    Writer/director Lawrence Michael Levine’s film “Wild Canaries” is a tonal and genre departure from his previous feature, “Gabi On The Roof In July,” but his hipster Brooklyn milieu remains the same.

How do you get the most out of big-budget CG but retain the charm, coy humor and character integrity of the original? Somehow they pulled it off - with a healthy respect for the past as well as the ...
