Directed by Ramin Bahrani, "At Any Price" stars Efron as a young farmer's son from the Heartland with big dreams of escaping his small-town life. On the surface, it could ...

    Review: Ulrich Seidl’s ‘Paradise: Love’ A Difficult But Provocative Watch With An Astounding Central Performance

    Black/white, rich/poor, fat/thin, female/male, old/young -- these are just a few of the dichotomies explored in the first of the 'Paradise' trilogy from Austrian director Ulrich Seidl. Our chronology is a bit messed up, since we already reviewed (very favorably) the second entry “Paradise: Faith” ou...

    Pain & Gain

    What burns me up about "Pain & Gain" is that the trailer, and even the excerpts shown on TV, make it look like fun.

    The Reluctant Fundamentalist

    Having made a number of movies dealing with cultural identity, Mira Nair was an obvious choice to direct the screen adaptation of Mohsin Hamid’s critically acclaimed novel "The Reluctant Fundamentalist," even though she is Indian and the film is rooted in Pakistan.

    At Any Price

    Review: Overstuffed 'Love Is All You Need' An Unsatisfying, Predictable Rom-Com From Susanne Bier

    What’s up with those crazy Danish filmmakers and their compulsion to pile it on? The latest from Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier (“In A Better World”) is like watching a long game of Jenga.

One of these people is Alix (Emmanuelle...
