    Locarno Review: Markus Imhoof's Insightful "More Than Honey" Concerns a Lot More Than Bees in Crisis

    Markus Imhoof's "More Than Honey" makes a convincing argument for the role of bees sustaining both organic and industrial concerns, not to mention their own complex set of behaviors. Facing crises that threaten to impact their existence as well as various marketplaces that rely on thei...

    Locarno Review: Joao Pedro Rodrigues and Joao Rui Geurrea da Mata Probe Post-Colonial History With 'The Last Time I Saw Macao'

    A provocative cinematic poem in the tradition of the late Chris Marker, "The Last Time I Saw Macao" valiantly attempts to dissect an entire metropolitan history. Perhaps because it aims so big, not every fragment connects, but Portuguese co-directors Joao Pedro Rodrigues and Joao Rui Guerr...

    The Bourne Legacy—movie review

    It takes chutzpah to make a film called 'The Bourne Legacy' without Matt Damon or, for that matter, a character named Bourne. That the movie turned out as well as it has is a tribute to co-writer and director Tony Gilroy (who worked on all three previous films in the series) and Jeremy Renner, who i...
