    SFIFF Review: 'Inori' Is A Gentle Look At A Slowly Fading, Traditional Way Of Life

    Pedro Gonzáles-Rubio’s “Inori” (Japanese for prayer) is set in Kannogawa, Japan, a dying town.

    With 'The Great Gatsby,' Does Baz Luhrmann Prove He's More Gratuitous Than Michael Bay?

    The least interesting aspects of Baz Luhrmann's unsurprisingly lavish near-musical adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" come from the source material. That should surprise exactly no one. More to the point, the sprawling tale of millionaire loner Jay Gatsby (a confident Leonardo DiCaprio) yearning to be...
