    Sundance 2013 Review: John Akomfrah’s 'The Stuart Hall Project '

    It would be unfair to call The Stuart Hall Project a simple documentary.

    If the season premiere was a bit of shakeup to reorient the gang in "Girls" for wherever the new season will take them, the second episode almost seems like an addendum.

    Park Chan-wook's First American Movie, 'Stoker,' Features a Creepy Mia Wasikowska and Familiar Violent Streak

    South Korean auteur Park Chan-wook's filmmaking always dances a fine line between sublime and absurd genre ingredients. "Stoker," his first American-set, English language picture, is no exception. It's tempting to resist describing the movie in terms of the cinematic traditions it calls to mind: Alf...
