    Review: 'We The Party' Is An Overly Familiar Teen Romp That Tries To Be Something More

    "We the Party" has a poster that makes it look like a more urban entry in the popular "Step Up" franchise, but is hilariously tagged as being "From the Director of 'New Jack City,'" a movie that most of the cast and pretty much anyone they're targeting to watch the movie, have either forgotten about...

    Getting To Know Groucho—And His Brothers—book reviews

    I avoided reading Steve Stoliar’s 'Raised Eyebrows: My Years Inside Groucho’s House' when it was first published in 1996 because I didn’t want to learn about an aging, diminished Groucho Marx, and I wasn’t interested in rehashing the exploits of Erin Fleming, the controversial woman who took control...

    Review: "London River" Is An Affecting and Superbly Acted Tale of Humanity (Brenda Blethyn, Sotigui Kouyate)

    London River, directed by French-Algerian filmmaker Rachid Bouchareb (Days of Glory, Outside The Law), made its way to DVD/VOD yesterday, when I was able to catch it via Amazon Instant Video. Aside from a few connection hiccups, I was able to fully appreciate this moving story of a market gardener f...

    Review: 'American Reunion' Is A Stale Slice Of 'Pie' That Coasts On Nostalgia & Cameos

    “American Reunion” begins with the franchise’s typical sexual misunderstanding played for casual sitcom laughs. Married couple Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) are preparing for bedtime when she excuses herself to take a late night bath. Without saying a word, Jim watches her leave b...

    Review: 'ATM' Is An Impossibly Implausible, Hilariously Bad B-Movie

    Cheap, slapped-together run-of-the-mill B-movie thrillers are a dime a dozen. And their egregiousness is often not worthy of outrage or scorn because frequently the films are made on the cheap with a knowing eye towards making a buck with direct-to-DVD sales or foreign markets that don’t care about ...

    Review: French Thriller 'The Assault' Presents Propulsive Action, But Little Humanity

    Civic duty comes into play with Julien Leclercq's "The Assault", the new French actioner opening this week. Filmmaking is not a hobby, nor is it broad labor, and one has a responsibility to the truth, both superficially and subtextually. To damn "The Assault" with the accusat...

    Review: Guy Maddin's 'Keyhole' Beautiful And Brassy...But Frustratingly Sealed

    Let us pause, then, to contemplate the fate and fortunes of the director who does not have his or her eye set on the five-picture deal, the glossy franchise, the production wing in the bungalow offices of some major studio; what becomes of the director who only wants to make art and make it well? Ca...
