    Now and Then: Making Sense of Miranda July

    I am not a Miranda July hater. "Me and You and Everyone We Know" (2005) felt almost painfully fresh to me — I'd never seen anything like it. It had, in offbeat colors and patterns, a preternatural understanding that love and sex vibrate on wavelengths we can't quite see or hear, only sense.

    Book Review: 'Sherlock Holmes On Screen' Is An Exhaustive And Informative Look at Pop Culture's Greatest Sleuth

    SUNDANCE REVIEW: NEXT Winner 'Sleepwalk With Me' is a Showcase for Comedian Mike Birbiglia

    Sundance Review: 'V/H/S' A Solidly Delivered Horror Anthology That Brings The Thrills

    When compared to the pristine picture quality of Blu-ray, the VHS format is a decrepit, grungy thing, so how better to make an anthology of grimy spook stories than to embrace that aesthetic all-around as "V/H/S" does? Made up of six found-footage style segments – few of which actual...

    Review: HBO, David Milch and Michael Mann's 'Luck' Pilot Promises More than It Delivers

    "Luck" is a world that David Milch knows well. His self-described addiction to the track is legendary, both as a prodigious better and an owner. He once had a horse headed for the Derby who, like a horse in the pilot, broke down (in life, after the Louisville plane tickets had been booked).

    Sundance Review: Weird & Sometimes Confusing 'John Dies At The End' Is Still An Odd & Engaging Genre Treat

    The problem addressing fans of “Midnight” films and wacky horror can succinctly be found in the opening of Don Coscarelli's “John Dies At The End.” It involves axe handles, zombies, mutant leeches, axe heads, hardware store trips and answering a dead man as to whether or ...
