    REVIEW | Megan Fox, Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray Lose Direction in Awful "Passion Play"

    When "Passion Play" premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, it became the object of instant derision.

    REVIEW | Despite A Loony Mel Gibson, "The Beaver" Is a Tame Dramatic Affair

    Despite a ludicrous set-up based around one of the most outlandish performances of Mel Gibson's career, "The Beaver" is a tame, leisurely drama that neither provides the beleaguered actor with decisive comeback material nor further muddies his tarnished image. As directed by Jodie Foster from the sc...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | What Edward Burns' "Newlyweds" Says About the Future of Cheap Movies

    An ultralight excursion into the urban neuroses of the Woody Allen canon, Edward Burns' 10th feature, "Newlyweds," is a slight relationship comedy that constitutes more of a doodle than a full-fledged movie.

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Festival Winner "She Monkeys" Puts Sexual Competition in Closeup

    Swedish director Lisa Aschan's "She Monkeys" is a patient study of young female desire. The plot has a simple trajectory: Two teen girls shift from friends to competitors while vying for the top spot of an equestrian acrobatics team. The subtext runs deeper, however, as the coming-of-age story adopts a bleak Darwinian perspective.

Her script (co-written by Josefine Adolfsson) mainly takes the perspective of Emma (Mathilda Paradeiser), a new addition to the team who's initially encouraged by the seductive Cassandra (Linda Molin) to enj...

    In recent years, Werner Herzog's sly observations on the ways the universe in wondrously strange documentaries such as "Grizzly Man" and "Encounters at the End of the World" have taken on cult status apart from his existing place in the history of German cinema.

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Revenge of the Electric Car" is a Happy Ending that Doesn't Ask Too Many Questions

    "She Monkeys," "Attenberg" Among San Francisco International Film Festival Standouts

    The filmmaking voices that are rewarded at the San Francisco International Film Festival are every bit as quirky as its proudly off-center citizenry. This 15-day affair takes the opposite tack to its cross-country counterpart: Where the Tribeca Film Festival is heavy on premieres but contains only t...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Flowers of Evil" Constructs a Love Triangle Where Technology is the Third Wheel

    Although it tells an old story, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are the real stars of the delicate romance "Flowers of Evil." David Dusa's feature-length directorial debut is an intimate portrayal of a cross-cultural romance between a French-Algerian bellhop and the Iranian fugitive he meets in Paris....
