    Venice Review: Errol Morris’ Donald Rumsfeld Documentary ‘The Unknown Known’

    As we inch towards another potential war in the Middle East, the last couple are still being pored over by filmmakers. We’re still likely some time away from the definitive takes on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we have seen a few solid films telling those stories in the last decade or so al...

    Venice Review: Patrice Leconte’s ‘A Promise’ Starring Rebecca Hall, Richard Madden & Alan Rickman

    He’s fallen out of favor a bit in the last few years, but there was a time when Patrice Leconte was one of the most popular foreign filmmakers in the U.S. While he was never a favorite with the hipper critics, over the 1990s and early 2000s, films like “Ridicule,” “ The Girl On The Bridge,” “The Man...

    Review: 'I Am Breathing' Is A Genuinely Inspirational Documentary On One Man’s Last Days

    Actor Josh Gad recently called the Ashton Kutcher-starring Steve Jobs biopic “inspirational,” and why wouldn’t he? There is no doubt Steve Jobs the man continues to inspire, but that word—“inspirational”—is thrown around by actors, filmmakers, and even critics with reckless abandon. (My favorite cam...

    TV IS THE NEW CINEMA - Meat & Potatoes

    The satisfying contemporary Western procedural "Longmire" (A&E), from the novels of Craig Johnson, managed to squeeze a second season-ending cliffhanger out of the very same underlying mystery it turned to last year, the questions surrounding the death of the title character's beloved wife. If 'hang...

    Review: Charles Murray's Spoken Word Love Story 'Things Never Said' (Opens In LA Friday)

    In his feature directorial debut, longtime television writer/EP Charles Murray takes a turn from TV action-drama to deliver a decidedly black love story reminiscent of the late '90s heyday of the genre.

    Venice Review: Kim-Ki Duk's Taboo-Shattering Black Comedy 'Moebius'

    Internationally at least, Kim Ki-Duk's "Pieta" was hardly the popular choice to win the Golden Lion at last year's Venice Film Festival. The Korean provocateur is a long-time favorite at Venice, and the film was predictably well-received by local audiences and critic, but U.S. and U.K. critics, ours...

    Review: 'Riddick' Starring Vin Diesel, Katee Sackhoff, And Karl Urban

    "Pitch Black," released by Universal in 2000 to little fanfare, was a small-scale genre movie that took almost everyone who saw it by surprise. It featured a nifty conceit (space travelers are marooned on a hostile alien world inhabited by nocturnal predators days before a lengthy solar eclipse) and...

    Venice Review: Alex Gibney's Lance Armstrong Documentary 'The Armstrong Lie'

    The last few years have seen sport of all kinds haunted by the specter of doping, with everyone from Barry Bonds to Alex Rodriguez linked to the use of banned substances.

    Review: 'Money For Nothing: Inside The Federal Reserve'

    In 2010, Charles Ferguson's powerful "Inside Job" arrived in theaters, hot on the heels of 2007-2008 financial crisis. It was an effective, scathing and furious look at the systemic breakdown of the very institutions that are supposed to protect us that led to a situation that put the entire world e...
