    Weekend Preview: Affleck's Crowd-Pleasing 'Argo,' A Breath of Fresh Air in the 'Middle of Nowhere'

    Ben Affleck's "Argo" leads the pack of new movies out this weekend. The crowd-pleaser, which premiered at Telluride, will please fans of Affleck's "The Town" -- but some of us are left wanting more. Martin McDonagh's "Seven Psychopaths" and Ava DuVernay's "Middle of Nowhere" boast enthusiastic revie...

    Argo—movie review

    'Argo' is one terrific movie, the best I’ve seen all year. The fact that it’s an original (and difficult to encapsulate) may make it a tough sell, but I hope good reviews and word of mouth will bring it the success it deserves.

    Seven Psychopaths—movie review

    Because I’m fond of writer-director Martin McDonagh’s debut feature 'In Bruges', I was eager to see his follow-up, especially when I saw the dream cast of oddballs and originals he assembled, led by Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson—not to mention such iconoclasts ...

    Photographic Memory—movie review

    Ross McElwee made his reputation with a highly original film called 'Sherman’s March' and has continued to draw on his family history in such low-key, first-person features as 'Bright Leaves'. His latest effort, 'Photographic Memory', is another cinematic diary which follows two separate but related...

    Review: Straight-To-DVD 'The Courier' Hopes You Like Your 'Transporter' Glum, Boring & Cheap

    Justice has a new face! And that face is sleepy! The appeal of actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan seems to lie in the suggestion that he’s giving his performance right after he just woke from a nap. This makes him the perfect leading man for “The Courier,” a new action thriller hitting DVD this week. Directe...

    NYFF Review: 'Leviathan' An Otherworldly Peek At A Life At Sea

    Every sound in “Leviathan” is a shuddering staccato. Every visual wears darkness like a cloak. With absolutely no context, there’s no awareness of what’s up or down. When it is promoted, the ads will suggest “Leviathan” is a documentary, and a scan of the press notes will reveal exactly where the fi...

    Review: 'Split: A Deeper Divide' Reduces Abstract Topic To Impartial Talking Heads

    “Split: A Deeper Divide” is a new doc that attempts to take us deep into the cultural divide that exists today and explain where it came from. It’s not necessarily director Kelly Nyks’ fault that, while he attempts to plunge into this crevice like a moonshine-poisoned, wetsuit-clad James Cameron, he...

    NYFF Review: 'Outrage Beyond' Is Pure Unfiltered Takeshi Kitano

    Suckas better recognize, because Takeshi Kitano is back, and he ain’t suffering no fools. “Outrage Beyond” is the most violent and brutal of Kitano’s body of work yet, and considering the writer-director-star is known for his shocking, graphic Yakuza dramas, that’s something worth noting. As back-to...

    Review: Mary Elizabeth Winstead & Aaron Paul Hit the Bottle, And It Hits Back, In Strong, Stirring 'Smashed'

    There is a sub-canon of films about alcohol as deep and as dark as a barrel of bourbon, from "Lost Weekend" to "Days of Wine and Roses" to "Trees Lounge." "Smashed" casts Aaron Paul and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Charlie and Kate, a married couple in L.A....
