    Review: 'Crystal Fairy' Starring Michael Cera & Gaby Hoffmann

    "Guess if Michael Cera's dead, it's not a total loss right?" Danny McBride says in probably the funniest moment in the teaser for “This Is The End,” a new apocalyptic comedy starring Cera and McBride along with an all-star roster of mostly Apatow-bred comedians all playing distorted versions of them...

    Karlovy Vary Review: Sophie Huber's Documentary 'Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction'

    An enigmatic and perhaps occasionally overly deferential documentary about one of the all-time great character actors, Sophie Huber’s “Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction,” is slow out of the gate, but gently, ever so gently, builds to a thoughtful portrait of a thoughtful man. Stanton, while never l...

    Karlovy Vary Review: Felix Van Groeningen's Tribeca & Berlin Favorite 'The Broken Circle Breakdown'

    An immaculately observed, desperately moving story of love, loss, and bluegrass music, it's easy to see why Belgian film "The Broken Circle Breakdown" came to the Karlovy Vary Film Festival trailing awards: Best Actress and Best Screenplay from Tribeca and the Audience Award and the Europa Cinemas A...

    Karlovy Vary Review: Clio Barnard’s ’The Selfish Giant’

    We meet Arbor, the troubled young protagonist of Clio Barnard’s second feature “The Selfish Giant" in claustrophobic close-up as he hammers his fists in incoherent rage against the underside of the bed beneath which, we gather, he tends to retreat in times of stress. The violence subsides suddenly t...

    Karlovy Vary Review: Ben Wheatley's 'A Field In England'

    Imagine attempting a super-low-budget, rapidly shot mashup of the melancholic aesthetic of Ingmar Bergman, the comedic sensibility of Mel Brooks and the tonal uneasiness of Lars Von Trier -- you'd probably end up with a complete mess of a film.

    Review: 'The Way, Way Back' Starring Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, Toni Collette & More

    Back in 2012, “The Descendants” took home the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, and most people were probably surprised to see Alexander Payne (a previous winner for “Sideways” and nominee for “Election”) flanked by Dean Pelton from “Community” and that dude from “Club Dread.” For the first time in...
