    Review: Filipino Thriller 'On The Job' A Familiar But Exciting Echo Of 'The Departed'

    The Philippines gets their own “Infernal Affairs” with “On the Job,” a propulsive new actioner. It’s not a remake of that Hong Kong hit, but it features the same cops-and-criminals conflict and stock moral ambiguity that turned that earlier film, and “The Departed,” into an ethical funhouse mirror f...

    RIFF Review: Social-Realist 'Diego Star' Anchored by Issaka Sawadogo's Layered, Splendid Performance

    Issaka Sawadogo remains a mystery here in the States, but you ought to pay attention – his work has been profiled on S&A a few times in the past (HERE and HERE) – because the Burkinabe actor is bestowed with serious acting range.

    NYFF Review: Paul Greengrass Takes You Hostage In The Desperately Harrowing ‘Captain Phillips’

    Review: Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Charming 'Don Jon' Starring Scarlett Johansson

    Jon Martello is the quintessential modern-day lothario. He and his friends objectify women, rate them on a scale of one to ten and cruise clubs for chicks that they can bed and discard. Jon, in particular, is exceptionally good at wooing the ladies with his muscles, slick-backed hair and cocky charm...
