    Review: 'Lee Daniels' The Butler' Starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey

    “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” is nothing if not full of sincerity and effort. Which is why it’s so entirely confusing why they cast former teen heartthrob John Cusack as hangdog Richard Nixon.

    Locarno Film Festival Review: How Joaquim Pinto's 'What Now? Remind Me' Turns a Three Hour Portrait of Living With AIDS Into Cinematic Art

    The first image of "What Now? Remind Me," Portuguese film industry veteran Joaquim Pinto's 164-minute portrait of his one-year experience taking experimental medication for AIDS and Hepititus-C, sets the tone perfectly: In a lush extreme close-up, a grey slug oozes across the screen, its pores magni...

    "Prince Avalanche" is a difficult film to pigeonhole, and that's part of its appeal.

    Lovelace

    The 1970s recreation is remarkably good, from costuming and often-hilarious hairstyles... to the details of shooting a porno film—on film. Storytelling also benefits from Stephen Trask's subtly effective score.

    Review: 'Lovelace' Starring Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, James Franco, Adam Brody & More

    Not so much a film about Linda Lovelace as a film about a bunch of things that happen to Linda Lovelace, including a destructive marriage to seeming complete, total, bonafide scumbag sonofabitch Chuck Traynor, "Lovelace" is a glossy, starry package featuring loving '70s set design, costuming and nar...

The sibling filmmakers' followup similarl...

    Netflix Streaming Pick Review - 'The First Grader' Is Well-Meaning But Lacks Context & Drama Force

    Inspiring and heart-warming are words that will easily be pegged to the description of The First Grader. The story of an 84 year old Kenyan man enrolling in primary school is, after all, the sort of feel-good thing you expect to hear after all the bad news has been dispensed with, the sort of story ...
