    THE COMPANY YOU KEEP

    Socially relevant films for adults are so rare that you want to root for each one that comes along, especially from a filmmaker as imposing as Robert Redford. This one not only brings the actor back to the screen but surrounds him with an A-list cast.

    Review: Shane Carruth's Beguilingly Enigmatic 'Upstream Color' May Cause Disorienting Side Effects, Results Will Vary

    Nine years ago, autodidact filmmaker Shane Carruth burst onto the indie scene with the abstruse and complex sci-fi thriller "Primer," which made him a Sundance darling in 2004 when it won the Grand Jury Prize and went on to become a cult hit. The polymath writer, director, actor, musician, editor, p...

    Review: 'Evil Dead' Is A Grim, Humorless, Ultraviolent Update Of A Horror Classic

    Review: Robert Redford's 'The Company You Keep' Is An Unconvincing Bit Of Agitprop

    The third film in Robert Redford’s recent series of stillborn, bleeding heart dramas, "The Company You Keep" is a busy but inert civic-minded thriller. As a director, Redford has yet to break his recent habit of using hackneyed dialogue to talk down to his audience with Aaron Sorkin-esque dialogue t...
