    Big Screen | "Weird" Korean Western is New Critic's Pick

    Perhaps bracing for the upcoming summer season, it's a somewhat slower weekend at the movies on the specialty front (though there should be a significant amount of holdover business). Openers include Kim Ji-woon's Korean Western "The Good, The Bad, The Weird," Michele Mulroney & Kieran Mulroney's R...

    Big Screen | Acclaimed "Gift Shop" Opens For Business; Oscar Winning "Secret" Is Out

    It looks to be a very busy weekend at art houses across North America, with no fewer than eight releases beginning their platform releases. Among them are two films that were already the subject of considerable conversation earlier this year: Mysterious English street artist Banksy's "Exit Through The Gift Shop," which caused a stir at Sundance in January and is now being released through; and "The Secret In Their Eyes," Argentine director Juan José Campanella's film that surprised many by taking the best foreign language film Oscar over "The White Ribbon" and "A Prophet" (oddly enough, all three films are being released through Sony Pictures...

    iW Review | An Urban Mystery: Banksy's "Exit Through the Gift Shop"

    From the moment elusive street artist Banksy appears on camera in "Exit Through the Gift Shop," something seems fishy. With his face obscured by shadows and his real voice rendered unrecognizable by mechanical distortion, Banksy remains the mysterious figure he has always been. In "Exit," the contex...

    Big Screen | Anti-Date Movie "Everyone Else" Opens To Raves

    "If there’s one movie this spring that you shouldn’t see with a date, it’s 'Everyone Else,'" Anthony Lane wrote this week in his New Yorker review of the new film, "unless you are looking for a quick, low-budget way to break up." While that may be the case with Maren Ade's meticulously observed dep...

    REVIEW | Film Noir Footwork: Nash Edgerton's "The Square"

    The title of Nash Edgerton's "The Square" could easily refer to the neatly packaged category of film noir in which it exists. The Australian director's first feature involves a pair of star-crossed suburban adulterers whose background scheming is doomed to fail, and from the opening minutes, the ent...

    SXSW '10 | The Genre Jig Beyond Mumblecore

    The elusive form of American independent cinema known as mumblecore has been killed off many times over, but its phantoms still haunt the reputation of the South by Southwest Film Festival. This year, however, seemed like a welcome exception: With no premieres from Joe Swanberg or Andrew Bujalski, a...

    REVIEW | Fraternity Failure: Will Canon's "Brotherhood"

    A breathless thriller from its very first frame, Will Canon's "Brotherhood" careens forward with spastic momentum. Following a group of deranged frat boys in a single night of hazing gone awry, Canon eschews patient storytelling in favor of wall-to-wall sequences loaded with distress. The dialogue is cheap and incredulous, the plot twists seem too perfectly conceived, and it ends with a shrug rather than any kind of natural climax. But "Brotherhood" succeeds as sheer pulpy entertainment, ferociously indicting frat culture in much the same way that "Hostel" critiques rambunctious American tourism - simplistically, but not at the expense of a g...

    REVIEW | Americana in Microcosm: Jeff Malmberg's “Marwencol”

    Jeff Malmberg’s “Marwencol” portrays an accidental artist for whom creativity serves as catharsis, rather than angst. Mark Hogancamp, an upstate New York resident left with brain damage after several men attacked him outside of a bar in 2000, copes by creating his own world. An amnesiac and alcoholi...
