    Review: Elderhood Documentary 'Alive Inside' Is Vital & Important

    Elderhood. Is that even a thing? You grow from the innocence of childhood through the experiences of adulthood and then...you just get old. Nobody likes to talk about that. Kids dream about growing up so they can do all the adult things they see adults do, and adults wish they can turn back the cloc...

    Review: The Shorter U.S. Theatrical Cut Of Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo'

    “Mood Indigo,” the latest from the Michel Gondry dream factory, is something of a cinephile's movie. The playful whimsy merchant might be closing a book or opening a new one, since the picture almost feels transitional. All the Gondry staples are there – the dreams that fold into reality, the un-ack...

    Recap: 'The Leftovers' Season 1, Episode 4 'B.J. And The A.C.'

    "There is no family," Patti Levin (Ann Dowd) mysteriously and somewhat gravely writes on her notepad, and it's a theme that will come to bear in "B.J. And The A.C." Christmas has arrived in Mapleton, and all police chief Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) wants is a little bit of peace for the holiday. A...

    Fantasia Review: Takashi Miike's Enjoyably Wacky 'The Mole Song – Undercover Agent Reiji'

    Takashi Miike works at a rate that is as prolific as it is uneven, usually directing multiple movies per year, in a wide range of styles from comedies to family films to straight ahead police procedurals (like the dreadful Cannes Competition entry "Shield Of Straw"). And so, it's never quite certain...

    Review: Woody Allen’s ‘Magic In The Moonlight’ Starring Colin Firth & Emma Stone

    “Cloquet hated reality but realized it was still the only place to get a good steak,” Woody Allen once wrote in the 1977 short story "The Condemned"—as good as any an example of a raison d’etre for the glib, witty and yet philosophical filmmaker. But also a good exemplar of his outlook on life; blea...

    Review: 'The Purge: Anarchy' Starring Frank Grillo

    It doesn't take a thinking person more than ten seconds to poke holes in the premise of “The Purge." It also doesn't take one to see the seductive hook of the material: Americans acting upon some sort of birthright to behave like animals, to let loose the chains of propriety and savagely end each ot...

    Review: 'Sex Tape' Starring Cameron Diaz And Jason Segel

    As far as weird on-screen sexual scenarios go, Cameron Diaz has had her fair share. After all, she is the only actress in the history of the medium to have styled her hair with male ejaculate ("There's Something About Mary"), been involved in some kind of weird old timey abortion ("Gangs of New York...

    Review: 'Heatstroke' Starring Stephen Dorff And Maisie Williams

    The sun bears down on the characters in “Heatstroke," a new suspense thriller set in the African desert. At first it feels like an inspired location, a way to provide color to a familiar hide-and-seek chase actioner. But as the film goes on, the sun almost seems as if it's burning its own location, ...

    Karlovy Vary Review: Multiple Venice Winner ‘Still Life’ Starring Eddie Marsan

    Not wishing to start off on a total downer, let us say that for much of its running time, “Still Life” is just about bearable. Now that’s partly because, catching up with the four-time Venice award-winner [drops to knees, bellows “Why?” at the heavens] at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival...
