    It’s time to stop treating Uwe Boll like some once-in-a-lifetime nightmare behind the camera, and to start acknowledging that he’s just another substandard genre filmmaker. He’s Lucio Fulci without the aesthetics and kinky fetishes, Takashi Miike without the profane poetry, Roger Corman without the ...

    Review: Race And Class Issues Clash With Lowbrow Comedy In 'Peeples'

    You’d be forgiven if you expected Tyler Perry to influence a large chunk of “Peeples,” the latest film to carry his name like a neon sign promising broad comedy and aggressive but dubious morality.

    DVD Review: 'The Soloist' (Jamie Foxx As Schizophrenic Cello Prodigy)

    Upon initially hearing about The Soloist, when it first was released, I remember groaning at the thought of what I imagined would be yet another studio film infected with the media-old "Magical Negro" virus - the male idiot savant of African descent, who naturally comes fully equipped with his arsen...

    SFIFF Review: 'Inori' Is A Gentle Look At A Slowly Fading, Traditional Way Of Life

    Pedro Gonzáles-Rubio’s “Inori” (Japanese for prayer) is set in Kannogawa, Japan, a dying town.
