    Carnage—movie review

    Carnage seems to be a pretty good movie, but I have no way of evaluating it without comparing it to the play on which it’s based, 'God of Carnage', which I saw on Broadway with a perfect cast (James Gandolfini, Marcia Gay Harden, Jeff Daniels, and Hope Davis). This isn’t fair to the picture—or to vi...

    Review: 'Carnage' Is Fun While It Lasts, But Insubstantial & Anonymous

    Compared to his last film, Roman Polanski's "Carnage" must have been a breeze. Not that the shoot for "The Ghost Writer" was "Fitzcarraldo" or anything, but, famously, the project hit a major speed bump in September 2009, while the film was in post-production, when ...

    "Cook County" Is the Cheap Alternative to "Breaking Bad"

    Over the last four years, AMC drama "Breaking Bad" has earned a reputation as one of the best shows on television. The saga of a high school chemistry teacher embroiled in meth production, it treats the drug and its users as the pitiable victims of larger interests. Anyone seeking an alter...

    Robert Downey and Jude Law in Joyful, Sparkling Sherlock Holmes

    Poor Watson, a smart guy fated to look dim next to his brilliant best friend, Sherlock, and often underused on screen the way Robert Sean Leonard is as Wilson on House (as the series’ creator has often said, Wilson is Watson to House’s Holmes).  The bright twist in Sherlock Hol...

    Review & Round-up: Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Opens A Day Early, December 20

    "The Social Network'''s Rooney Mara delivers Salander in a smart expertly executed film that takes the time to make clear plot developments and changing dynamics between investigator Blomkvist (well-played by Daniel Craig) and the androgynous punk researcher who has a woman in her bed when he first ...

    Marrakech Film Festival '11 Reviews: 'Land of Oblivion' Starring Olga Kurylenko & '180°' The Swiss-German Version Of 'Crash' (Basically)

    "Land of Oblivion" It is 25 years ago in the small Ukrainian town of Pripyat. People are fishing. A boy goes to look at the tree he and his father planted. A woman prepares for her wedding. And then it starts to rain - not, in itself, a doom-laden event, except if you know that Pripyat w...

    The Best Film of the Year that Critics Forgot

    My favorite movie released in 2011 has been conspicuously absent from film critics' year-end best lists. Maybe it's because the film premiered more than over a year ago at the 2010 Cannes festival, but its highly affective, penetrating account of marriage, parenting, and infidelity is sti...

    Review: David Fincher’s ‘Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Is An Intense But Dispassionate Thriller

    Looking at “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” it’s hard not to think of the dark thriller cum procedural as director David Fincher’s “The Departed." Notwithstanding both films being inspired by/remade from acclaimed foreign predecessors, Fincher and Scorsese alike seem to be saying with them, “You w...

    L.A. Rebellion 2011 Retrospective Review - Larry Clark's "Passing Through"

    There are two filmmakers named Larry Clark, and this is NOT about the Larry Clark whose ephebophiliac imagination has given us films like Kids, Bully, and Wassup Rockers! Just so we’re clear, this Larry Clark is Black, a Cleveland native who went to UCLA along with Charles Burnett, Julie ...
