    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)...

    Toronto Review | Punk Rock Women Talk: Bruce McDonald's "Trigger"

    The engine of Bruce McDonald's "Trigger" is chatter, and it rarely lets up. Gliding along on the controlled nature of its two lead performances, the movie portrays two aging women rockers in unflattering detail. Former childhood friends Vic (Tracy Wright, in her last performance b...

    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 | Checking In: Spike Lee's Return to New Orleans Uneven But Still Essential

    In 2006, Spike Lee's sprawling HBO documentary "When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts" delivered the definitive look at the destruction wreaked by Hurricane Katrina on the lower class residents of New Orleans. While other investigative reports on the disaster have come and gone, Lee's portra...

    REVIEW | An American Conspiracy: "The Tillman Story"

    The opening shot of "The Tillman Story" states its intentions in visual terms. Tillman, a former NFL star-turned-soldier who died in Afghanistan in 2004, stares blankly into the camera as he waits for an interview to begin. Seconds pass. He takes a deep breath. Sitting in silence, free from scrutiny...

    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. Last year, Yoav Shamir's perceptive documentary "Defamation" put an additional focus on the problem by following school children on a guilt-inducing field trip to Auschwitz.

    Locarno Review | Singing Serbian Depression: "White White World"

    In the Serbian drama "White White World: The Miner's Opera" ("Beli Beli Svet"), the characters sing, but never dance. Formulated as a modern day Greek tragedy set in the decrepit southeastern mining town Bor, the movie follows a close group of alienated locals through misguided love affairs and othe...

    Daniel Cockburn's Enigmatic "You Are Here" Is "Inception" With More Puzzles

    A man trapped in a room answers questions in Chinese without comprehending the language. Confused pedestrians wander the city streets, taking meaningless orders from a control center that guides their movements. A child tells the story of a mad scientist whose ubiquitous computer-eye threatens ...
