    REVIEW | Claude Lanzmann Revisits Jan Karski in "The Karski Report"

    A single interview unfolding more or less in real time, "The Karski Report," a 49-minute cinematic essay cribbed from the cutting room floor of Claude Lanzmann's sprawling 1985 documentary "Shoah," imbues one monologue with tremendous historical weight. Having previously aired on French television, ...

    REVIEW | Impenetrable Fantasy: "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives"

    Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul has made a career out of directing movies that seem like dense visual riddles, matching poetry with mysterious cinematic designs. However, while his earlier features often felt primarily energizing as intellectual exercises rather than creative pursuits, his l...

    REVIEW | A Work In Progress: James Franco and Gus Van Sant's "Unfinished"

    James Franco's ubiquity may finally have reached its saturation point this past weekend. Within the same frenzied 48-hour period there was his Independent Spirit Award win for "127 Hours;" an Oscar co-hosting gig; and a third, less-visible achievement: Saturday was the opening of "Unfinished," his c...

    REVIEW | Belgian Septuagenarians Get Jiggy in "The Over the Hill Band"

    Blending sass and pathos, the Belgian comedy "The Over the Hill Band" ("Meisjes") has a neatly conceived premise. Like Stephen Walker's delicate nonfiction portrait "Young@Heart," it's a genuine heart-tugger about senior citizens rediscovering their youth by singing pop music; like Craig Brewer's cr...

    REVIEW | A Quiet Test of Faith in "Of Gods and Men"

    From its early scenes, "Of Gods and Men" inhabits the sacred lives of its monastic subjects.

    REVIEW | Purposeless but Sweet: Xavier Dolan's "Heartbeats"

    A hyperstylized "Jules and Jim" update, Canadian actor-turned-filmmaker prodigy Xavier Dolan's French language romance "Heartbeats" ("Les Amour Imaginaires") is as hip as he intends it. At the same time, this chic look at a bisexual love triangle occasionally feels too entangled in its own cool mane...

    Berlinale '11 | The Iran Question; Generations a Gem & "Jess + Moss"

    At a Berlinale notable for its predictability, one incident above all sticks in the memory: before the opening credits rolled on the Turkish competition entry "Our Grand Despair," a screen emblazoned with the words FREE JAFAR PANAHI AND MOHAMMAD RASOULOF appeared, and in my seat I braced myself, ant...
