    film review: Iron Man 2

    The best thing I can say about Iron Man 2 is also the worst thing I can say about it: it’s a sequel. Kids will probably like it fine; there’s plenty of action and it’s easy to follow. But big-league comic-book movies want to appeal to adults as well as kids these days, and it&rs...

    REVIEW | Living the Negative and Optimistic "Metropolis"

    Few images from the silent film era linger in contemporary pop culture more than the dreary futuristic landscapes of Fritz Lang's "Metropolis." Whereas Charlie Chaplin remains the paragon of cinema's capacity to entertain, Lang's 1927 epic still provokes fears about modern technology. Conventional w...

    REVIEW | Cute and Shallow: Thomas Balmes's "Babies"

    The celebration of new life in "Babies," a documentary about four newborns around the world, almost makes the project worthwhile -- but not quite. French director Thomas Balmes dives right into his virtually wordless cycle of cross-cutting with hardly any introduction, instead favoring the collage a...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Movies Within a Movie: The Anthology Documentary "Freakonomics"

    Equal parts journalistic exposé and targeted anthropological dissection, the slick anthology production "Freakonomics" makes heavy ideas go down easy. That's the point, of course: Based on Steven Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner's bestselling 2005 tome, the movie explores "the hidden side of everything" -- meaning the interpersonal rituals dictating when societal decisions get made, or should get made, or should not get made. It's a broad topic, which justifies the mini-movie format for probing the book's central concepts. Directed by a documentarian "dream team" composed of established non-fiction storytellers with divergent approaches, "Freakon...

    VOD Review: 'Shawshank' With Teens? Kim Chapiron's 'Dog Pound' Finds Turmoil In Youth Prison

    The opening moments of "Dog Pound" introduce its young subjects in a frenzy of violent acts: Suave 16-year-old Davis (Shane Kippel) gets nabbed by the cops for pushing pills; 15-year-old Angel (Mateo Morales) goes down for assault and auto theft; hot-headed Butch (Adam Butcher) beats up a correction...

    Big Screen | Holofcener and a "Human Centipede" Lead Debuts

    Both among early-in-the-season picks on indieWIRE's summer movie preview, there might not be a more inappropriate double feature than Nicole Holofcener's "Please Give" and Tom Six's "The Human Centipede." One is a light-hearted morality tale about a bunch of inter-connected New Yorkers negotiating t...
