    Review: Illuminating & Hilarious Documentary 'Our Nixon'

    The documentary "Our Nixon" by Penny Lane serves as a bit of a complication to the popular narrative of Richard Nixon as our most scandalized and scheming of Presidents. While it doesn't seek to alter this narrative, it does attempt to add another layer to the story, a perspective offered by those c...

    Review: Sundance Best Director Winner 'Afternoon Delight' Starring Kathryn Hahn & Juno Temple

    The premise of “Afternoon Delight,” admittedly, does not sound terribly appealing: to spice up their sex life, a Silverlake couple goes for a night out at a gentleman’s club and subsequently take in a stripper in need of help. From that logline alone you can glean that their relatively buttoned-up s...

    Venice Review: Bruce LaBruce Makes A Play For The Mainstream With 'Gerontophilia'

    Canada's Bruce LaBruce has been one of the more notable cinematic provocateurs of the last couple of decades. Starting off in Toronto's queercore scene, he's won acclaim on the festival circuit thanks to the taboo-busting, sexually explicit likes of "The Raspberry Reich," "Otto, Or Up With Dead Peop...

    Venice Review: John Curran's 'Tracks' Starring Mia Wasikowska & Adam Driver

    “Tracks” has been a long time coming. Ever since Robyn Davidson wrote her 1979 memoir of her 1700-mile, eight-month trek across the Australian outback from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean, and the book became an award-winning best-seller around the world, Hollywood has been sniffing around it.

    Venice Review: Israeli Film Academy Best Picture Nominee 'Bethlehem'

    Venice has welcomed Israeli films into its line up many times over the last few years: tank-bound war film “Lebanon” was a Golden Lion-winner a few years back, and last year saw “Fill The Void” become something of a crowd-pleaser at the festival. “ Bethlehem,” the feature directorial debut of filmma...
