    REVIEW | Greta Gerwig Is a Mumblecore Prop in "Arthur"

    Four years ago, Greta Gerwig was everywhere, but only visible to those paying attention.

    REVIEW | Transgender Melancholia in Portuguese "To Die Like a Man"

    Portuguese director João Pedro Rodrigues has carved out a niche in contemporary queer cinema over the past ten years with a trio of confrontational, subversive features. After completing "The Phantom" in 2000, Rodrigues continued his rise with the Cannes Directors Fortnight entry "Two Drifters" in 2...

    REVIEW | "Meet Monica Velour" Is Better Than Its Poster, But Not By Much

    The tagline on the poster for "Meet Monica Velour" reads "Fantasy Meets Reality," an announcement made underneath the image of a stone-faced and scantily clad Kim Cattrall leaning her right foot against a stripper pole. It's intended as a splashy encapsulation of the plot, in which horny 17-year-old...

    REVIEW | "Hanna" is the Ass-Kicker that "Sucker Punch" Wanted to Be

    In "Hanna," director Joe Wright successfully recycles almost every action movie trope of the past decade. From the seamless hand-on-hand combat to the appropriately frenzied soundtrack by The Chemical Brothers, the resulting adrenaline-packed vehicle delivers a multi-directional sugar rush. It moves...

    REVIEW | Strangely Alluring Over "Kati with an I"

    In "Kati with an I," documentarian Robert Greene ("Owning the Weather") turns his camera on his teenage half-sister on the brink of her high school graduation. That backdrop offers nothing new, but Greene's patient, understated portrait renders a universal rite of passage in strangely alluring, poet...
