    Toronto Review | De Niro Versus Norton: John Curran's "Stone"

    A bizarre, messy tale of religious philosophy and guilt, John Curran's "Stone" has several unique parts that never entirely fit together. Robert De Niro stars as Michigan-based parole officer Jack Mabrey, an unnervingly cold man with inner demons to spare. His latest subject is Stone (Edward Norton)...

    Eric Rohmer vs. the 3-D Threat: August in Focus

    No movie made more money in August than "The Expendables," an old school action product so thoroughly decried for its empty, virile spectacles that you have to wonder if the majority of audiences pouring money into Sylvester Stallone's pocket have done so with full awareness of the blatant stupidity...

    REVIEW | Manipulating the Past: "A Film Unfinished"

    The popular sentiment about Holocaust grief at the movies reached a breaking point in 2008, when backlash against "The Reader" suggested that audiences had grown tired of the predetermined gravitas that seemed to infuse such stories with an immediate sense of purpose.
