    Darling Companion—movie review

    In our youth-driven movie culture it’s refreshing to find an American film made by, and for, mature audiences. Being of a certain age myself, I was charmed by this lovely, leisurely-paced story that deals with issues young viewers might not relate to: taking a longtime spouse for granted, losi...

    Review: Marvel's 'The Avengers' Is Immensely Satisfying, Entirely Thrilling & Possibly The Best Superhero Movie Yet

    The first scene of " The Avengers" is not very good. Deep in a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. base, scientist Eric Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard) is conducting experiments on The Tesseract, the blue cube that powered the Red Skull's experiments in "Captain America." Expriments that, unfortunately, bring to earth L...

    Tribeca Review: Haphazard 'Your Sister's Sister' Ambles Towards Drama With Little Consequence

    Independent filmmaking has become somewhat hyper-obsessed in the last few years with "realism." Lighting rigs have been put away, available light filling in where it will, and scripts tossed out for sketches, shaped by improvisation in an attempt to capture as close to an approximation of real human...

    Review: 'Snow On Tha Bluff' A Refreshing, Unrelenting Piece Of Cinéma Vérité

    A jolt of, uh, dope into the veins of the micro-indie/found footage scene, “Snow on tha Bluff” is a wildly kinetic tour through one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the United States; an endlessly entertaining and captivating portrait of a “robbery boy” and crack dealer. Filmmaker Damon Russel...

    Tribeca Review: An Unwieldy ‘The Five-Year Engagement’ Is Still Endearing, Funny & Smart

    Funny, touching and occasionally dramatic, Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller’s charming “The Five Year Engagement” falls just short of the modern-day comedy classic category, and yet is deeply entertaining, genuinely amusing and satisfying in the way most shaggy-dog, two-hour-plus comedies are not. B...

    Review: 'Oki's Movie' A Sincere, Hilarious & Dense Relationship Movie

    Comprised of four segments using the same characters caught in a love triangle at various points in their life, "Oki's Movie" experiments with structure to humorously examine the connections and similarities between people.

    Review: 'Bad Ass' Adds Intriguing Dimension To Hit Viral Video, Then Squanders It With Tacky Exploitation Trappings

    All hail VOD, the format giving new life to disreputable exploitation films. It was problematic to stock them on DVD shelves next to the likes of “Kangaroo Jack” and “The Chronicles Of Riddick.” Now, the cheapest, tackiest, most base thrills are only a click away, allowing an opportunistic indie lik...

    Review: Mary Harron's 'The Moth Diaries' Is A Teen Vampire Tale Without Any Fangs

    It's remarkably tough to get any film financed, at least one that doesn't have 3D talking animals from a popular cartoon series. So it's no surprise that some filmmakers, for all their best efforts, can go three, four, five or more years between pictures. Worryingly, it seems to be doubly true for f...
