    Review: 'You Will Be My Son' Tests The Bonds Between Father And Son With Truth And Ugliness

    Review: The U.S. Cut Of Wong Kar-Wai’s ‘The Grandmaster’

    Exquisitely crafted, as visually stunning as you’d imagine and virtuosic in its meticulously gorgeous fight choreography (which acts as a kind of throwdown to comers like the Wachowski siblings), acclaimed Hong Kong auteur Wong Kar-wai’s “The Grandmaster” is nevertheless still an uneven and unbalanc...

    Review: 'Therese' Starring Audrey Tautou

    "Therese Desqueyroux," the closing night selection of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, is not the nuanced period drama it should be but is rather more like a banal, pseudo-thoughtful and monotonous episode of "Masterpiece Theater." Co-adapted by director Claude Miller ("A Secret," "Class Trip"), the l...

    Review: Secret Attraction Brews in Joe Swanberg's Funny and Sharply Observed 'Drinking Buddies'

    Joe Swanberg’s “Drinking Buddies,” which hits theaters August 23, is a portrait of individuals navigating the slippery slope of relationships, both romantic and platonic, and quietly, often hilariously nodding to the unspoken intersection of the two.

    Recap: 'The Newsroom,' Season 2, Episode 6 'One Step Too Many'

    Yes, I know — I missed an episode last week. A dual combo of screeners not arriving in time and a brief vacation keeping me away from the television led to that one getting missed out on, but really, not much happened in season two's fifth episode "Will McAvoy's News Night."

    Recap: 'Breaking Bad,' Season 5, Episode 10 'Buried'

    "I am the danger," Walter White chillingly intoned in season four's "Cornered," but with dynamics having severely shifted since, Heisenberg may not be the most unpredictable wildcard in the show, or that Hank (Dean Norris) now faces. Racing down to the final episode, once again "Breaking Bad" is fir...
