    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 ...

    Locarno Review | A Man Copied: Benedek Fliegauf's "Womb"

    The prospects of human cloning have provided fodder for decades of science fiction stories because they always contain a kernel of truth. Unlike the far-fetched conceits of alien invasions and deep space travel, cloning is tangible to the point where it doesn't demand extreme suspension of disbelief...

    Locarno Review | Diary of a Filmmaker: Christophe Honoré's "Man At Bath"

    Locarno Review | Santa Gone Wild: Jalmari Helander's "Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale"

    In 2003, Finnish director Jalmari Helander made a zany short film about smugglers in the business of hunting Santa Claus and inadvertently created a viral sensation. The short, "Rare Exports Inc.," and its 2005 follow-up, "Rare Exports: The Official Safety Instructions," con...

    Review | There Will Be a Crime: David Michod's "Animal Kingdom"

    Equal parts crime thriller, neo-western and coming-of-age story, the Australian drama "Animal Kingdom" puts its moral compass into a tailspin. Initially, first time writer-director David Michod introduces a basic sense of right and wrong adopted by the most casual entries in good-versus-evil sagas, but he later endows his cruel world with a fittingly tilted vision of justice. Our sympathies lie with alienated teen Josh (James Frecheville), a Melbourne youth whose innocence gets challenged by his older gangster relatives. Michod situates Josh as the moral center, then sneaks in a finale suggesting nothing is sacred. Josh grows up when he grow...

    Locarno Review | Undead Porn: Bruce LaBruce's "L.A. Zombie"

    Unless I'm missing something, the miraculous potential of a giant undead penis in Bruce LaBruce's "L.A. Zombie" is a definite first for film history.

    Locarno Review | Savage Grace: Benoit Jacquot's "Deep in the Woods"

    In the recent period of Benoit Jacquot's more than thirty years of filmmaking, with movies like "Seventh Heaven," he has often embraced a sharp psychoanalytic perspective.
