    AFI Fest Review: ‘Hitchcock’ A Breezy, Disposable Effort Saved By Anthony Hopkins & Helen Mirren’s Dedicated Performances

    Hypnotic, beautiful, and perilous in equal measure – one needn’t glance anywhere else but at the leading ladies of Alfred Hitchcock’s films to garner their intense influence, yet as dramatized in “Anvil!” director Sacha Gervasi’s loving biopic, “Hitchcock,” the real authority lingered off the set at...

    Wreck-It Ralph

    I’m always rooting for a new Disney animated feature, and 'Wreck-It Ralph' gave me a lot to cheer for: a fresh concept and clever execution to match it. Animation veteran (but studio newcomer) Rich Moore has directed this feature with a sharp eye, but winning over both hearts and minds is a tall ord...

    Flight

    'Flight' marks the second time director Robert Zemeckis has given us the vicarious experience of being on an airplane headed for disaster, the first being 'Cast Away.' It’s superior moviemaking, and powerfully emotional, but despite that hair-raising first act, 'Flight' is neither an action film nor...

    A Late Quartet

    Philip Seymour Hoffman is considered a leading contender for an Oscar nomination this year for his performance in' The Master'. But he’s also appearing in a modest film that shows him and costars Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener, and Mark Ivanir at their best:' A Late Quartet'.

    The Man With The Iron Fists

    Some people think of Quentin Tarantino as a mix-master who simply imitates film genres he loves. I disagree. If you think it’s easy to emulate older movies and put a personal stamp on the results, check out 'The Man with the Iron Fists'...

    Review: 'A Man's Story' A Refreshingly Honest & Candid Look At One Designer's Journey In The Fashion World

    From the outside, the world of haute couture often seems ridiculous, and it certainly lives up to that reputation often. But lost among the magazine spreads, photo shoots, ad campaigns, red carpet parties and so on, is the reality that it's not only a very tough business to break into, it's ...

    Review: Barry Levinson's 'The Bay' Is A Frightening Eco-Horror 'Jaws' Riff

    Primarily known for his talky, small-scale comedic dramas, exemplified by his beloved "Diner," Vanity Fair recently made a compelling argument for this seminal Barry Levinson film influencing everything from "Seinfeld" and "Swingers" to Judd Apatow's comedy factory ...

    Review: 'A Late Quartet' Is A Soap Opera Symphony That Hits All The Wrong Notes

    Certainly, if a film pulls together a cast that includes Philip Seymour Hoffmam, Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener, there's going to be something worth enjoying. And indeed, the trio give top shelf performances as we've always come to expect from them in "A Late Quartet." But...

    Review: Promising Alcoholism Drama ‘Flight’ Often Hits Rock Bottom

    After 12 years immersed (lost?) in the world of motion capture, Robert Zemeckis re-emerges into live-action filmmaking for “Flight,” an engaging and initially very promising drama about alcoholism, redemption and forgiveness that grows uneven and long-winded as it progresses, eventually clocking in ...

    Review: Rambling, Ragged 'This Must Be The Place' Isn't Nearly As Bad As You Feared

    The initial first glimpses for "This Must Be the Place" promised disaster, with a pitch of Sean Penn playing a burned-out post-punk rocker on the hunt for Nazis, and advance photos where Penn's jet-black corona of hair and dour made-up jowls made him look less like someone who had imit...
