    Review: 'Redemption' Starring Jason Statham

    In recent years Jason Statham, with his stocky frame, bald head and gravelly voice that makes him sound like he’s always gnawing on broken glass, has become a kind of one-man wrecking crew, and not just because of his appearance in the “Crank,” “Transporter” and “Expendables” franchises. A rough, se...

    DVD Review: ‘Borgen’ Season 2 Is A Reminder That This Is Still The Best Show You're Not Watching

    Review: Xavier Dolan's Epic 'Laurence Anyways'

    "The sky's the limit," Fred (Suzanne Clement) says when she's asked about what people will say when her boyfriend Laurence (Melvin Poupad) decides to become a woman. It's 1989 and she believes that her generation is ready to handle transsexuality -- and perhaps they are -- but as both Fred and Laure...

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Levitated Mass' Tells the Story Of A Rock Star Meeting The Masses

    The new documentary from Doug Pray, "Levitated Mass," is a story about an artist, a museum, a city, a piece of art. But what it's really about is a rock. A rock that's a star. Quite possibly one of the most famous rocks in the world, Levitated Mass, the massive monolithic land sculpture by land arti...

    Review: 'The Heat' Starring Melissa McCarthy & Sandra Bullock

    It isn’t maybe halfway through “The Heat” when you realize its purpose for existing isn’t for the freshest reasons. Paul Feig’s new cop comedy, a spiritual follow-up to his brassy “Bridesmaids,” seems heavily indebted to pretty much every cop comedy you’ve ever seen, Feig dutifully playing the hits ...

    Review: 'White House Down' Starring Channing Tatum & Jamie Foxx

    With a movie called "White House Down," directed by Roland Emmerich, you pretty much know what you're going to get. Having already laid waste to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue twice before in "2012" and "Independence Day," Emmerich luxuriates in blowing up the national icon once again. Both wings and the ...

    Review: 'A Band Called Death' Rewrites Punk History And Tells An Emotional Story Of Faith And Family

    Nope, not The Ramones, The Clash or the Sex Pistols. Not even Bad Brains. The true punk pioneers were a band called Death, straight out of Motor City, Detroit, and you’ve probably never heard of them until now. Thanks to some obsessive record collectors, a whole lot of serendipity, and a new documen...

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Delivery' Brings Scary and Entertaining New Life to Well-Known Horror Genres

    "Found Footage" is a tired trope, so one hesitates to lump in "Delivery" with the rest of the found footage horror genre because it's not under the guise of amateur "found" footage, it's footage that was specifically created— just for something quite different than what it was intended. "Delivery" m...

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Casting By' Is A Warm Tribute & Thanks To The Often Overlooked Work Of The Casting Director

    Here’s an interesting fact revealed in Tom Donahue’s documentary “Casting By”: casting directors are the only opening single card credit that does not receive its own Academy Award nomination. It’s an interesting fact, but also sort of a depressing one, as this film reveals not just how integral cas...

    Review: ’The Attack’ Is A Gripping, Suspenseful, Fearless Drama Set Around A Suicide Bombing

    Something about its portrayal of a nightmarish descent into a previously inconceivable reality had us comparing Marrakech Film Festival Grand Prix winner “The Attack” to Thomas Vinterberg’s “The Hunt.” But the crucial difference is that while the Danish film is preoccupied with social concerns, “The...
