    As the terrifically fun and informative documentary "Not Quite Hollywood" notes, at around the same time that austere, gauzy Australian films were bewitching American art house crowds (dubbed the Australian New Wave by people who dub those sorts of things), another, equally powerful surge of Austral...

    Healthcare Docs Face Crowded Marketplace in Trying to Remedy the System

    If Iraqumentaries dominated the nonfiction form half a decade ago, and the global economic crisis has been the de rigueur topic of late, a new subject is currently coming into favor: the state of America’s healthcare system. This month alone, three documentaries are being released that touc...

    Review: Heady, High Concept 'Looper' Is A Dazzling Piece Of Sci-Fi Noir

    Welcome to 2044, Kansas. Time travel hasn't been invented yet, but in thirty years it will be. And when it is, it's immediately outlawed, with criminal organizations using it for their own ends -- namely, to dispose of bodies. In the future, thanks to the advances in tracking people, it...

    Fantastic Fest Review: Award-Winning 'Vanishing Waves' Is a Beautifully Trippy Melodrama
