    The Pretty One

    The premise of "The Pretty One" may be far-fetched, but it’s carried out with sincerity and the results are amusing, ironic, and thoughtful. Here's a small-scale movie that offers a gleam of satisfaction.

    The Wind Rises

    Certainly no one else would render such a story in old-school, hand-drawn animation instead of surrendering to modern CGI. But that’s what makes Miyazaki unique.

    The best way to remember, and celebrate, the late, great Elaine Stritch would be to watch this recent documentary portrait (and her one-woman show, 'Elaine Stritch at Liberty'.”

    Review: Golden Bear Winner 'Child's Pose' Anchored By A Great Performance From Luminita Gheorghiu

    Review: '3 Days to Kill' Starring Kevin Costner, Hailee Steinfeld & Amber Heard

    French filmmaker Luc Besson used to make arty entertainments that came packaged with an element of exploitative sizzle (things like the endlessly remade "La Femme Nikita" and "The Fifth Element," which was like a European comic book version of "Star Wars").
