    Melancholia, directed by Lars von Trier and starring Kirsten Dunst

    Lars von Trier is not a brother who provokes a neutral response: there are those who feel he can do no wrong, and then there are naysayers like me. Although I consider Dancer in the Dark one of the best movies of the last decade, I swore I’d never sit through another of his films after suffering thr...

    Review: "Becoming Santa" is a Wonderful Start to the Holiday Season

    With a title like “Becoming Santa,” Jeff Myers and Jack Sanderson’s crowd-pleasing new film sounds like a Hollywood comedy about a regular guy who takes on the role of Santa Claus.  And that’s almost what it is, minus the Hollywood part, but don’t confuse this...

    Review: ‘The Descendants’ Starring George Clooney Is A Mature & Soulful Look At Forgiveness

    Marked by a strong, soulful performance by George Clooney, simple and economic direction, and a slow and patient gait, “The Descendants” finds filmmaker Alexander Payne working in the familiar, but not derivative, milieu of the adult drama. The film doesn’t reinvent the wheel, and ...

    First Reviews - The Iron Lady

    The Iron Lady was unveiled for critics in London and clearly there was no embargo since the reviews have been coming in. Neither one of the reviews below is a rave except for Streep's performance. I think this will be a case of the actress giving a performance that outweighs the heft of the fi...

    Tomboy

    Tomboy written and directed by Celine Sciamma is literally one of my favorite movies of the year. I enjoyed every second of it. It tells the story of Laure, a girl who moves to a new town and pretends she is a boy. She has short hair, wears gender neutral summer clothing and is at an age where at...

    "Tomboy" Positions Director Celine Sciamma as a Warmer Catherine Breillat

    Céline Sciamma's 2007 directorial debut, "Water Lillies," delicately explored the awakening of female urges among a group of feisty teenage girls. Sciamma's follow-up, the similarly heartfelt "Tomboy," moves back in time to unearth the same fundamental experiences ...

    "Cutting Horse" And The Need for More Black Westerns

    Black cowboys aren’t often portrayed in American film, even though they played an integral role in the development of the Western frontier. This is one of the reasons I decided to see Larry Clark’s Cutting Horse (2002) on Sunday night, screened as part of the UCLA L.A. Rebellion Film Ser...

    music review: Boardwalk Empire - Volume 1 (Elektra)

    Nothing evokes a period more vividly, or instantaneously, than music, and the producers of the HBO Prohibition drama 'Boardwalk Empire' have made canny use of vintage songs, both on-camera and off-, since their series began. Now some of the best selections have been gathered in a deligh...
