    Review: Jason Reitman's Dreary 'Labor Day' Starring Josh Brolin & Kate Winslet

    Review: 'The Monuments Men' Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray & Cate Blanchett

    "The Monuments Men" always felt like a worthwhile (if dicey) proposition: it's the true-life tale of a band of Allied art historians and curators who are dropped into occupied territory during the frenzied final moments of World War II, and their goal was simple and seemingly insurmountable.

    Göteborg Review: Cambodian Foreign-Language Oscar Nominee And Cannes Winner 'The Missing Picture'

    Part documentary, part autobiographical art experiment and part defiant act of memorialization, it’s easy to see why Cambodian film “The Missing Picture,” which screens at the Göteborg International Film Festival this week, now occupies an Oscar nomination slot for Best Foreign Language Film (as we’...
