    Review: It Might Not Be Journalism, But You Won't Find The Stories On 'Vice' Anywhere Else

    Ah, Vice. The once long ago irreverent little zine out of Montreal and has grown into a globe spanning empire, with offices around the world, and an online presence that has expanded far beyond their still free, glossy monthly magazine. And while they may still be snarked at for their ongoing Dos & ...

    Review: 'Tomorrow You're Gone' A Stylized Neo-Noir That Goes Nowhere Slowly

    It’s exceptionally strange to be reviewing a film so soon after the passing of Roger Ebert. Surely he’s the reason why most of us write reviews, why we’ve ever felt the need to tap our keyboards once the end credits begin to roll. We love and admire the deep thinkers who favor academic readings of f...

    Review: Danny Boyle's 'Trance' Is A Trippy, Twisty, Terrific Thriller

    He might have had a rockier patch in the mid-'00s -- no one saw his delightful fable "Millions," and sci-fi "Sunshine" was both a commercial disappointment and the most difficult shoot of his career -- but things couldn't have gone much better for Danny Boyle in the last few years. "Slumdog Milliona...

    THE COMPANY YOU KEEP

    Socially relevant films for adults are so rare that you want to root for each one that comes along, especially from a filmmaker as imposing as Robert Redford. This one not only brings the actor back to the screen but surrounds him with an A-list cast.

    Review: Shane Carruth's Beguilingly Enigmatic 'Upstream Color' May Cause Disorienting Side Effects, Results Will Vary

    Nine years ago, autodidact filmmaker Shane Carruth burst onto the indie scene with the abstruse and complex sci-fi thriller "Primer," which made him a Sundance darling in 2004 when it won the Grand Jury Prize and went on to become a cult hit. The polymath writer, director, actor, musician, editor, p...

    Review: 'Evil Dead' Is A Grim, Humorless, Ultraviolent Update Of A Horror Classic

    When the "Evil Dead" remake was first announced, everyone pretty much assumed that it was going to suck. This was something that star/producer Bruce Campbell acknowledged during the Q&A at the film's SXSW World Premiere last month. But after years of being assaulted with fan questions about a fourth...

    Review: 'Thale' Is A Half-Finished Spooky Fairy Tale

    There’s usually a handshake agreement made by audiences with genre filmmakers eager to make an impression: If your first act is fantastical, intriguing and mysterious, then don’t botch it with an overly technical, low-imagination third act explanation. This sort of misstep has dogged big budget mish...
