The Australian director's first feature involves a pair of star-crossed suburban adulterers whose background scheming is doomed to fail, and from the opening minutes, the ent...

    SXSW '10 | The Genre Jig Beyond Mumblecore

    REVIEW | Fraternity Failure: Will Canon's "Brotherhood"

    A breathless thriller from its very first frame, Will Canon's "Brotherhood" careens forward with spastic momentum.

But "Brotherhood" succeeds as sheer pulpy entertainment, ferociously indicting frat culture in much the same way that "Hostel" critiques rambunctious American tourism - simplistically, but not at the expense of a g...
