    Review: 'Scenic Route' Starring Josh Duhamel And Dan Fogler

    Sometimes hardship can bring friends together, and sometimes it can turn them into completely unrecognizable people. So it goes for “Scenic Route,” a micro-budget indie that attempts to refashion two known entities in Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler into interesting onscreen personas after the former ha...

    Review: 'The Trials Of Muhammad Ali'

    "In the '60s and '70s, he was the most recognizable face in the world. We created a symbol. Muhammad Ali has long since been supplanted by what we believe he is. There's so many ways of looking at him that have only to do with us, and have nothing to do with him," New York Times writer Robert Lipsyt...

    Review: Ulrich Seidl's 'Paradise: Faith' Is A Disarmingly Funny & Tender Examination Of Sex & Religion

    Trilogies can come in different forms. There’s Hollywood’s favourite variety—two sequels to a hit, that organically (“The Godfather”) or inorganically (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) expand on the original film’s success. There’s the single story that’s too big to fit into a single film, like “The Apu ...

    Review: 'Savannah' Starring Jim Caviezel & Chiwetel Ejiofor

    Let's say you're a filmmaker, and you're given the opportunity to tell the true life story of two people: Ward Allen, an Oxford-educated Southerner, who defies expectations and makes a career as hunter, rabble-rouser and good ol' boy, and Christmas Moultrie, a man born into slavery, who becomes a fr...

    Review: 'Short Term 12' Starring Brie Larson, John Gallagher Jr. & Rami Malek

    It’s Nate’s (Rami Malek) first day at the adolescent foster care facility Short Term 12, and his new coworker Mason (John Gallagher Jr., scruffy and soulful) is regaling the staff with a silly monologue about an unfortunate sharting incident he suffered in the line of duty. It's a funny tale, but it...

    Review: 'The Frozen Ground' Starring Nicolas Cage, John Cusack & Vanessa Hudgens

    What is the allure of true crime stories beyond the truth of “well, that happened”? It’s the sort of rubbernecking that not only kept “Law And Order” on the air for years, but spawned a cottage industry of shows and movies geared towards illuminating the dark side of crime, dramatizing, and attempti...

    Review: 'The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones' Starring Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower & More

    The duality of humankind has largely been visualized, at least in cartoons and broad comedies, as a tiny angel sitting on one shoulder, while a devil is perched on the opposite shoulder. The inherent drama, of course, is watching as the character decides which symbol to listen to: the heavenly or th...

    Fantasia Film Festival Reviews: 'Return To Nuke 'Em High Vol. 1,' 'Antisocial' & 'Discopath'

    “Return To Nuke ‘Em High Vol.1” begins with narration that establishes the latest Troma effort as a sequel as well as a remake, showcasing the madcap lunacy of the unhinged first picture while tipping a cap to its sequels. The explanation now, which sort of renders the title irrelevant, revolves aro...

    Review: 'You Will Be My Son' Tests The Bonds Between Father And Son With Truth And Ugliness

    “You Will Be My Son” could very well be the “Moby Dick” of stories about realistically awful fathers. The beauty of a gorgeous vineyard in France is obscured by the monstrous countenance of Paul de Marseul (Niels Arestrup), a bitter old man caring for his massive wine business with a pompous sense o...

    Review: The U.S. Cut Of Wong Kar-Wai’s ‘The Grandmaster’

    Exquisitely crafted, as visually stunning as you’d imagine and virtuosic in its meticulously gorgeous fight choreography (which acts as a kind of throwdown to comers like the Wachowski siblings), acclaimed Hong Kong auteur Wong Kar-wai’s “The Grandmaster” is nevertheless still an uneven and unbalanc...
