    'American Hustle': When Brilliant Acting is More than Enough

    Bradley Cooper in pink hair curlers says it all. So does Christian Bale's giant pot belly and glued-down combover, and Jennifer Lawrence's poufy blonde 'do. It makes sense that a film about small-time cons reinventing themselves and a big FBI scam never quite lets you forget that you're watching b...

    Review: Decent & Well-Acted 'Saving Mr. Banks' With Tom Hanks & Emma Thompson

    Though the general public doesn't always share their enthusiasm, Hollywood loves making movies about itself. Whether fictional or based in reality, it's rare for a year to pass without some kind of film about filmmaking, from classics like "Sunset Boulevard" and "Mulholland Drive" to, uh, not-classi...

    Marrakech Fest Review: Dark, Stylised 'The Gambler' From New Director Ignas Jonynas

    A feature debut (we’re not counting the portmanteau “Yolki,” co-directed with Timur Bekmambetov, among others) so self-assured as to really only ever be marred by show-offiness, Latvian/Lithuanian co-production "The Gambler," which plays in competition at the Marrakech Film Festival, marks director ...

    Review: 'The Punk Singer' A Passionate Portrait Of Bikini Kill Singer & Riot Grrrl Founder Kathleen Hanna

    1991 was the year punk broke, hurtling Sonic Youth, Nirvana and their contemporaries into the mainstream, but unless you were plugged into the still-vibrant underground—going to house shows, basement gigs or concerts in unlikely venues like bowling alleys—you likely didn't know about Bikini Kill.
