    Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding—movie review

    Not every movie is, or has to be, an Event. Sometimes all I ask of a film is that it offer a pleasant diversion for an hour and a half. That’s exactly what I got from Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding. I fear it may get a critical drubbing during the heated atmosphere of the current movie se...

For answers, see the engaging new comedy 'Safety Not Guaranteed', which won newcomer Derek Connolly the Wald...

    Review: 'Paul Williams: Still Alive' Is A Wonderfully Weird, Surprisingly Moving Tribute To A Forgotten Musical Icon

    Does the name Paul Williams mean anything to you? Does it ring a bell? No? How about these songs: "Rainbow Connection," "Evergreen," "We've Only Just Begun," "Old Fashioned Love Song"? Williams is the legendary singer-songwriter behind those tunes and a former '70s superstar and personality who made...

    Weekend Preview: Spectacular 'Prometheus' Arrives, 'Safety Not Guaranteed' Best of the Indies

    "Prometheus" finally arrives this weekend and it's quite a ride. While its story may not deliver on the promise of its dazzling trailer and promos, it's visually stunning and Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are an impressive pair. Among the indie fare arriving this weekend is the charming Sundan...

    Review: 'Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding' Is A Fun, Easy Trip Upstate

    There are moments during certain romantic comedies when you might find yourself throwing up your hands and growling, “come on!” under your breath. And with good reason: the improbability of plotlines and inconsistencies of characters are enough to drive even the sappiest of us screaming ...

    Jane Fonda Brings Back the 60's in 'Peace, Love & Misunderstanding'

    Please don’t take this as an endorsement of the film, but Jane Fonda’s casting and witty performance add a clever layer of history to the otherwise dismal Peace, Love & Misunderstanding. This clunky, obvious comedy about a fractured family is ludicrous from its premise on.

    RKO Radio Pictures: A Titan Is Born—book review

    I can’t explain why I’ve always been attracted to the films of RKO. It can’t just be that arresting radio tower logo; there’s something unpredictable about the studio’s body of work during the 1930s and '40s. Now, thanks to longtime studio scholar Richard Jewell (who coauthored the coffee-table refe...
