    Berlin Review: ‘Cesar Chavez’ Starring Michael Pena, America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson And John Malkovich

    An intermittently compelling overview of a movement, but only a cursory portrait of a man, “Cesar Chavez,” directed by Diego Luna and premiering at the Berlin International Film Festival this week, is a well-intentioned, respectable and respectful biopic. But the conservative format of the film, tha...

    Berlin Review: Claudia Llosa’s ‘Aloft’ Starring Jennifer Connelly, Cillian Murphy & Melanie Laurent

    Berlin Review: 'In Order Of Disappearance' Sees Stellan Skarsgård On A Blackly Hilarious Rampage Of Revenge

    In case you’re unaware, Lars Von Trier is not the only director to regard Stellan Skarsgård as something of a talisman, as the actor has paired up with director Hans Petter Moland three times previously, most recently with "A Somewhat Gentle Man," a film we reviewed in 2011.

    Berlin Women Directors: Meet Sudabeh Mortezai

    "I discovered Macondo by accident. I had heard there was a settlement on the outskirts of Vienna that had been housing refugees since the 1950s, with 2000 people from over 20 nations co-existing in cheap social housing.

    Berlin Review: ‘A Long Way Down’ Starring Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots & Aaron Paul

    Oh dear. [D]. Sort of tempted to leave the review at that, to be honest, but what would the internet do with all of that white space? So here is a bunch more words about it, and no matter how haphazardly they’re arranged we can take some comfort in the fact that it’s with seemingly more care than we...

    Interview: Jack O'Connell On '71,' 'Starred Up,' Working With Angelina Jolie & Getting Spray Tanned For '300' Sequel

    It’s February 2014 and it’s more than likely that, if you live in America, you’d have a hard time picking Jack O’Connell out of a line-up. But by year’s end we’ll wager that will have changed as by then, if there’s any justice in the world both “Starred Up” the fantastic prison drama that we caught ...

    Berlin Review: 'At Home' a Quiet Manifesto with Political Anger Loud and Clear

    The Greek Weird Wave crashed onto the shores of Berlin this week, carrying Athanasios Karanikolas’ “At Home,” a film that owes a larger stylistic debt to Michaelangelo Antonioni than it does the other post-financial-debacle movies that have been arriving like belts of ouzo courtesy of an under-finan...
