    Review: 'Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie' Charts the Rise and Fall of One of TV's Most Controversial Figures

    When he was a teenager in Edison, N.J., Daniel Miller’s friends used to pile into cars and go to tapings of the incendiary “Morton Downey Jr. Show,” reporting back on developments “to our utter glee.” Miller never went himself, but he was a regular viewer of the seminal trash-TV talk show host and n...

    Review: Marijuana Legalization Doc 'Evergreen' Lights Up Seattle Crowd

    At the premiere, massive applause and cheers greeted virtually every emphatic statement in favor of the measure. A curious herbal scene was detectable in the aisles. For the moment, "Evergreen" was a victory lap.

    Review: 'World War Z' Starring Brad Pitt

    "World War Z" was always going to be a difficult nut to crack. The book of the same name, by son-of-Mel Max Brooks, was a bestseller a few years back, and a somewhat atypical one; a brainy, grim faux oral history of a zombie apocalypse that wiped out most of the world's population. It made enough of...

    Review: 'Free China': A Struggle For the Future of China's Soul

    Michael Perlman's new documentary "Free China: The Courage to Believe" which opens Friday in New York City for a week-long run, is a brave, upsetting, unabashedly political film that examines the dissonances between China's remarkable economic rise and its appalling human rights record. But for Per...

    Review: Alain Resnais' 'You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet!'

    Alain Resnais is no stranger to the absurd. For over fifty years, his films—beginning with “Hiroshima, Mon Amour,” have asked questions through their oblique narratives about the way we think about story, performance, and cinema. But such a serious statement also obscures the pure delight it is to g...

    Review: 'Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer' One of the Most Important Documentaries of the Year

    “Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer” may well be the most important doc of the year, despite the fact that its directors never quite get to the point of what the alleged “crimes” were all about: Namely, Vladimir Putin’s co-opting of the Russian Orthodox Church, and the church’s Stockholm Syndrome approach to...

    VOD Review: How 'V/H/S 2' Shows The Fun SIde of Brutal Horror

    Last year's anthology horror production "V/H/S" was a revelation mainly because it took the overly familiar found-footage genre and exploited it to the fullest extent. The sequel, "V/H/S 2," achieves a similar goal with more frightening extremes.

    Review: Prep For 'Man of Steel' and the Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis' With Sci-Fi Musical Comedy 'The History of Future Folk'

    "The History of Future Folk," a microbudget Brooklyn-set adventure co-directed by J. Anderson Mitchell and Jeremiah Kipp, works so well partly because it carries the energy of the real musicians featured in it.

    Review: Joss Whedon's 'Much Ado About Nothing'

    How does one follow the biggest superhero film in box office history? Perhaps a better way to phrase it is, how does the man behind some of the most beloved cult TV series and characters in recent pop history follow the biggest superhero film in box office history? If we're talking about the much-lo...

    Review: 'Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie'

    A charlatan, a ringmaster, and, at his most charitable, an irresponsible pig. This was Morton Downey Jr., and “Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie” is probably the film he deserves. Destined to provoke knowing nods from his fanbase, and predictable tsk-tsks from his detractors, 'Evocateur' examin...
