    Hollywood’s Kiddie Connection

    What do Jerry Lewis, Bugs Bunny, and Hopalong Cassidy have in common? They all recorded special material for an innovative kid-oriented Capitol Records series in the 1940s and ‘50s. This amazing output, perfectly timed for the baby boom of the post-World War II era, has now been exhaustively documen...

    Now and Then: The Top Ten Films of All Time

    Every ten years, "Sight and Sound" magazine conducts a poll asking critics and directors to rank the best films of all time. It's more Rorschach test than lab experiment, an impossible task that invariably goads people into calling you an idiot. But I'm a glutton for punishment, so in honor of this ...

    'Being John Malkovich' from Criterion: The Actor, The Geek, His Wife, and Her Lover

    Puppetry is control. So are acting, filing, and pet care. Each in its own way signals an attempt to make sense of the chaos that is lived experience, to grab hold of it and make it do what you want. And each, in "Being John Malkovich," director Spike Jonze's and screenwriter Charlie Kaufman's exhila...

    Review: Jean Claude Van Damme & Cung Le Pic 'Dragon Eyes' Features Impressive Action, Empty Story

    Hong, the lead character in “Dragon Eyes,” might as well be a Man Without A Name when he wanders into the small town of St. Jude. He seeks a second chance, an opportunity to atone for past violent misdeeds seen in fuzzy flashback. It doesn’t take long for the viewer to realize this means a lot of pe...

    'The Dictator' is a Bitingly Funny, Clear-Eyed Look at Capitalists, Dictators and Where They Meet

    If Groucho Marx were alive today, he would probably make movies like "The Dictator," British comedian Baron Cohen's latest subversive romp and searing showcase of crass global stereotypes.

    Flashback To '65: "The Slender Thread" (Sidney Poitier Tries To Talk Anne Bancroft Out Of Suicide; Quincy Jones Scores)

    I was honoring Mother's Day earlier today by watching 1967's The Graduate for the umpteenth time, and was reminded of this 1965 film which also starred one of the stars of The Graduate, Anne Bancroft.

    Mother's Day Pick: 'Whip It'

    You might not think of "Whip It!" Drew Barrymore’s debut feature about roller-derby babes, those hellions-on-wheels who dare guys to ogle them, as an ideal choice for Mother’s Day, but I hereby nominate Shauna Cross’ coming-of-age story as the best mother/daughter picture of the past decade.

    Review: 'Norman Mailer: The American' Is A Cliffs Notes Look At The Life Of A Literary Icon

    Provocative, rebellious, a genius and an undeniable force on the American literary landscape, Norman Mailer was an author, social commentator, filmmaker and a personality whose outsized figure nearly eclipsed his two Pulitzer prizes.

    Review: 'The Tortured' Might As Well Describe The Audience For Twisted Pictures' Latest

    For most viewers, there's no way to take a look at that Twisted Pictures logo and feel at ease. Sure, it's intimidating all on it's own -- dark lowercase lettering separated by barbed-wire, inky shadows. But it's an entirely different sort of fear that emerges from the house that Jam...
