    Sundance Review: 'Lay The Favorite' A Comedy That's An Empty Bet

    “You can't blame Stephen Frears for trying” seems to be the mantra for "Lay the Favorite," a mild romp through the T&A world of Las Vegas, gambling and literary adaptation. After all, "High Fidelity" is an iconic film to obsessive nerds (Need proof? See: every...

    Sundance Review: Less 'Wrong' Than Bad, Quentin Dupieux's Followup To 'Rubber' Proves Him To Be A Half-Hit Wonder

    Received at film fests and among cult cinema fans with the giddy glee of an inside joke, Quentin Dupieux's "Rubber" was a film more celebrated than ultimately worthy of celebration. Dupieux's piss-take on '70s killer-car horror (and, by extension, all cinema) as a psychic rubbe...

    Sundance Review: Spike Lee Reconnects With His Artistic Voice With The Emotionally Devastating 'Red Hook Summer'

    It’s hard to say how long it’s been since Spike Lee was as ambitious, and as focused, as he is on “Red Hook Summer.” Telling a story that evokes “Crooklyn” in its depiction of children coming of age, filtered through two subsequent decades of his professional succ...

    In an interview posted on this site about a week ago, Ice-T said of his directorial debut, Something For Nothing - The Art Of Rap, that his intent with the film was to document the craft of rapping, and not all the crass excesses the music has become emblematic of.

    Sundance Review: Mark Webber's 'The End of Love' Moves With Minor-Key Moments & Undersold Skill

    Written, directed by and starring Mark Webber -- whose acting filmography runs from "Kids" to "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" -- "The End of Love" is hardly a work of revelation. At the same time, it's surprisingly well-executed, nicely performed and manages to combin...

    'Teddy Bear' Is a Conventional Romance Elevated By Its Muscular Hero

    There's nothing fresh about the premise of a grown single man living at home with his mother, but Danish director Mads Matthiesen's first feature, "Teddy Bear," has a unique strategy for rejuvenating the formula. Its lead, real-life bodybuilder Kim Kold, is a hulking mass of biceps...

    VOD REVIEW: Quentin Dupieux's 'Wrong' Suggests 'Groundhog Day' Via Buñuel

    French director Quentin Dupieux's wacky "killer tire" movie "Rubber" was a surreal investigation into high-concept storytelling that opened with a mission statement: Facing the camera, an officer explained all narrative events would take place for "no reason." With his latest effort, "Wrong," Dupieu...
