    Review: Olivier Assayas’ ‘Something In The Air’ A Gorgeous Autobiography Marred By Underdeveloped Characters

    He’s been something of a critical favorite for a while now, but after making the hugely acclaimed “Summer Hours” and the TV miniseries/theatrical marathon “Carlos” within a few years of each other, French filmmaker Olivier Assayas has firmly cemented himself as one of the more exciting directors in ...

    Well-Forged: Iron Man 3

    Sequels are a tricky business. I thought "Iron Man 2" squandered much of the good will the original 2008 film, and its oddly inspired casting of Robert Downey, Jr., engendered.

    Tribeca Review: ‘Gore Vidal: The United States Of Amnesia’ Is A Forgettable Film About An Unforgettable Figure

    Gore Vidal is fascinating. Whether you agree with his politics or you enjoy is witty brand of snark or neither, he led an incredible and prolific life – one that could encompass multiple documentaries and this ultimately becomes the pitfall of “Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia” as it tries t...

    Review: 'Dead Man's Burden' Is A Stunningly Shot, Slow Burner Of A Classic, Yet Modern Western

    One of the most cinematically gorgeous independent films in a long time, “Dead Man’s Burden” (along with fellow 2012 indie “Beasts of the Southern Wild," shot on Super 16) truly makes the case for celluloid. While watching this meditative Western, one simply wants to drink in the beauty of the image...

    Review: 'What Maisie Knew' Is Deeply Affecting, Hard To Watch

    It’s often an easy way to handicap your film, by centering it on a child character and demanding a great deal from the young actor.

    Review: 'Kiss Of The Damned' Is An Intoxicatingly Lusty Homage To Old School Horror

    Xan Cassavetes, the daughter of John Cassavetes and the director of the wonderful film world documentary "Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession," wrote and directed "Kiss of the Damned" with a wink and a nod so overt that, from the opening credit sequence, which closely mimics the similarly-titled Hamm...

    Review: Penn Badgley Is Solid In Otherwise Uneven 'Greetings From Tim Buckley'

    While the film might not be quite as sweet and heady as drinking a glass of lilac wine, Penn Badgley's performance in "Greetings From Tim Buckley" does justice to the late Jeff Buckley, while also revealing that the "Gossip Girl" star has quite a few more talents than he's thus far been given credit...
