    Fantasia '12 Reviews: 'We Are Legion,' 'Alter Egos' & 'Nameless Gangster'

    "We Are Legion: The Story Of Hacktavists" (dir. Brian Knappenberger, 2011) One of the greatest changes to activism in recent memory is the power of social media and the internet to mobilize, disseminate and even enact protest actions on a massive scale, all with the click of a mouse. As ...

    Review: Fernando Meirelles' International Love Story '360' May Leave His Fans Heartbroken

    In a photo studio in Vienna, a sleazy photographer (Johannes Krisch) is coaxing a young Slovakian woman, Mirkha (Lucia Siposová), into posing for her first nude pictures. We soon find out this man is also a pimp, and the pictures are for luring clients on the internet. Her younger sister Anna...

    Review: 'Gerhard Richter Painting' An Uneven Portrait Of Process & Fame

    If one were to compare Corinna Belz's "Gerhard Richter Painting" to music documentaries, it would fall somewhere between Sam Jones' "I Am Trying To Break Your Heart" and Grant Gee's "Meeting People Is Easy." Eschewing the standard biographical framework, the film instead offers up a slice-of-life lo...

    Review: Danny Boyle's Witty, Subversive & Spectacular Opening Ceremony For London 2012 Olympics Was A Triumph

    We're not known for our love of sporting events here at The Playlist, but ever since it was announced that Danny Boyle would be the man in charge of the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics (following in the footsteps of "Hero" director Zhang Yimou, who shepherded the Beijing events), we've ...

    Dark Horse-movie review

    Todd Solondz is the master of suburban angst, but for me his films run hot and cold. When he’s hot, as in the recent 'Life During Wartime', he has an uncanny ability to find both absurdist comedy and poignant drama in the vicissitudes of everyday characters.

    Fantasia '12 Review: 'Toad Road' A Captivating Micro-Budget Horror Film

    Screwing with genre in a similar way that micro-budget relative Aaron Katz does, Jason Banker's "Toad Road" is an off-putting horror tale that abstains from the easy routes its kin generally take. We're first introduced to James (James Davidson) as he awakens in a niveous woodland, isolated and curi...

    Step Up Revolution—movie review

    Skeptics beware: I’m about to recommend a musical not only for its energy and imagination but its use of 3-D. Like its little-seen predecessor ('Step Up 3-D'), 'Step Up Revolution' won’t win any screenwriting awards, but it’s a perfect summertime refresher.
