    Reunited after a two-year estrangement, childhood friends Brooke and Morgan spend the early stages of "By Way of Home" catching up. The former, laid off and living with her parents, describes this state of affairs with a gentle euphemism ("the whole family's home"), but her delivery carries the unmi...

    Review: Tragi-Comedy 'Act of Killing' Confronts the Killer Inside (TRAILER)

    With his documentary "The Act of Killing," Joshua Oppenheimer has reset the bar for tragi-comedy. As in, don’t even bother trying, Hollywood. Ever again. In fact, why don’t we just dispense with next year’s Oscar race right now and give both the best documentary and the best feature award to this ...

    Review: 'Red 2' Starring Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren & More

    “Red 2” begins with a cool, comic-book-style credits sequence, paying a short homage to its Warren Ellis-penned roots. Too short, in fact. Just as we’re starting to get into the warmly hued titles, we’re thrown headlong into the live-action, high-stakes world of retired government agents...shopping ...

Ebert's site leads this morning with a previously unpublished review of Andrew Bujalski's Computer Chess, and the site's new editor, Matt Zoller Seitz, tells Criticwire there are more to...

    Review: How 'Only God Forgives' Suggests Ryan Gosling's Shtick Has Grown Thin

    Ryan Gosling is a talented actor who has faced the same challenge most distinctive performers inevitably must confront: the danger of turning into a walking cliché.

    Review: 'The Act Of Killing' Is A Constantly Astounding, Terrifying Masterpiece

    Holy fucking shit. That was my reaction coming out of a screening of Joshua Oppenheimer’s shattering documentary “The Act of Killing,” at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year , that we're reprinting now as it heads to theatres. And is really all you need to know: “The Act of Killing” is truly ...

    Review: Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives' Starring Ryan Gosling

    With the weight of expectation behind it, Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives” was never going to be able to deliver the same neon blue jolt of surprise that thrilled audiences who saw “Drive.” And the anticipation for this film has certainly been high for this film, that in early stages at le...

    Review: DreamWorks Animation's 'Turbo' Featuring The Voices of Ryan Reynolds & Samuel L. Jackson

    With some DreamWorks Animation movies, you can practically see and hear the pitch meeting that they came out of, as fully realized as any of the whiz-bang 3D computer graphics that will eventually coat movie theater screens nationwide.

    Review: Woody Allen's ‘Blue Jasmine’ Starring Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin & Sally Hawkins

    Like clockwork, the prodigious workaholic Woody Allen releases a movie each year. And every 12 months, there is the temptation to compare Allen’s latest with his past works, given that they tend to have formed a 31 flavors-like distinction over the last five decades. There’s the more recent trend to...
