    Sundance Review: Grand Jury Prize-Winning Doc 'Rich Hill' Is A Finely Observed Portrait Of Millenial American Boyhood

    In looking at two of the lauded Sundance 2014 documentaries, “The Overnighters” (a Special Jury prize winner; read our review) and “Rich Hill” (which won the Grand Jury Prize), a common theme makes itself apparent, with these two films running parallel to each other in their milieus, but in very dif...

    Review: An Inventor Learns to Paint, But Is It Art? Exploring 'Tim's Vermeer'

    A spirited look at the quest of an eccentric entrepreneur intent on uncovering the cryptic technique of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, "Tim's Vermeer" plays less like the sort of exposé of trickery one might expect of Penn & Teller and instead focuses on the nature of desiring answers to unsolvable...

    Penn & Teller Conjure 'Tim's Vermeer'

    Did Vermeer paint by numbers? Tim Jenison, a software innovator with lots of time, imagination and money to throw around, has an idea that comes close to that. In Tim's Vermeer, the delightful new documentary narrated by Penn and directed by Teller, we watch as Jenison tries out his theory.

    Göteborg Review: Iceland’s ‘Of Horses And Men’ An Appealing, Droll Comedy Of Human-Equine Manners

    While we’re leery of the kind of cultural stereotyping that might lead us to infer that Iceland’s greatest natural resource is quirk, hand drilled by Bjork and Jonsi from the country’s plentiful quirkmines, it’s a reputation that their submission for the Foreign Language Film Oscar doesn’t contradic...

    Sundance Review: ‘The Babadook’ Is A Terrific Look At The Horrors Of Having Children

    Review: 'That Awkward Moment' Starring Zac Efron, Miles Teller & Michael B. Jordan

    Later this year, Zac Efron will co-star with Seth Rogen in "Neighbors," an outrageous bro comedy about the war that develops between a young father and the college kid who moves in next door. The R-rated laffer will give Efron plenty of space to riff opposite his more seasoned comedy co-star, adding...
