    Review: J.C. Chandor Puts Robert Redford Through Watery Hell In Bruising, Formally Rigorous 'All Is Lost'

In what is only his second feature film, after the chalk-and-cheese financial collapse movie “Margin Call," he sets himself a kind of exercise in filmmaking rigor, in the bare-bones, one-man survival-at-sea story “All Is Lost” and delivers.

    Review: 'Kill Your Darlings' Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Elizabeth Olsen & More

    Review: Vincenzo Natali's 'Haunter' Starring Abigail Breslin

    Vincenzo Natali is one of those genre filmmakers who has the rare ability to inspire loyalty in his small but vocal fan base by maintaining an aura of utter fearlessness. The director of ingenious, high concept doodles like "Cube," "Cypher," and most importantly, the envelope pushing, outrageously u...

    Review: 'Big Ass Spider' Starring Greg Grunberg Is An Oddly Satisfying B-Movie Romp

    We're experiencing something of a giant monster revival in popular culture. On the small screen, giant monsters are all the rage, with WTF-worthy concoctions like "Sharknado" and "Ghost Shark" becoming ratings sensations thanks to ingeniously cheesy visual effects and stunt casting, while on the big...

    Review: '12 Years a Slave,' Starring a Brilliant Chiwetel Ejiofor, Is a Slavery Movie For the Ages

    Review: Juliette Binoche in the Heartbreaking 'Camille Claudel 1915'
