    Review: IMAX Nature Documentary 'Island Of Lemurs: Madagascar'

    The nature documentary, invented by Walt Disney himself and maintained, in the years since, by various filmmakers, philanthropists, and causes, has seen something of a resurgence in recent years, mostly thanks to the annual DisneyNature documentary that focuses on some exotic (but still cuddly) aspe...

    Review: Season 1 Of 'Doll & Em' A Low Key, Charming Look At Friendship And Celebrity

    The word "famous" probably isn't one that you would use to describe Emily Mortimer. Respected and talented, her impressive range of work includes movies with folks like Martin Scorsese, David Mamet, Woody Allen, Kenneth Branagh, Nicole Holofcener and more, and though you would probably recognize her...

    Review: ‘In The Blood’ Starring Gina Carano, Cam Gigandet & Danny Trejo

    With the endless barrage of action films fighting for our attention these days, it's rare to find one anchored by a woman. It's even more rare to find a lead who continually ignores consequences in her search for vengeance, but real life Mixed Martial Arts champion Gina Carano is just that kind of l...

    Review: Apocalyptic 'Goodbye World' Starring Adrian Grenier, Kerry Bishé, Mark Webber & Gaby Hoffmann

    Blame it on the Mayans, maybe, but 2012 and 2013 have seen a host of films with apocalypse on the brain, from big budget action flicks to meta-comedies like “This Is The End,” to smaller, more realistic dramedies like “It’s A Disaster." Director Denis Henry Hennelly’s “Goodbye World” falls more in l...

    New Directors/New Films Review: Radical, Thrilling 'The Strange Color Of Your Body's Tears'

    Some movies are watched. “The Strange Color Of Your Body's Tears” is a movie you live inside. This new film from directors Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani touches you repeatedly, inappropriately, from the front and, delightfully, from the rear. To synopsize the film is folly, though it will be fun t...

    Review: Errol Morris' Donald Rumsfeld Doc 'The Unknown Known' Both Insightful & Unsatisfying

    As we inch towards another potential war in the Middle East, the last couple are still being pored over by filmmakers. We’re still likely some time away from the definitive takes on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we have seen a few solid films telling those stories in the last decade or so, a...

    Review: Jonathan Glazer's Seductive Girl-Who-Fell-To-Earth Pic 'Under The Skin' Starring Scarlett Johansson

    If you’re a random male pedestrian and a gal who looks like Scarlett Johansson ever pulls up and offers to take you to her place for a quickie, the logical thing to do would be run like hell, since this could only be either a sting or a sign of the apocalypse, no matter how good looking a fellow you...

    New Directors/New Films Review: Quiet, Introspective And Surprising 'Buzzard'

    It's hard to look away from the face of Joshua Burge: his bug eyes recall Peter Lorre in their constant vigilant paranoia. But his angular femininity that comes from his soft mouth and sleek cheekbones suggest an approachability that contrasts with the sharpness of his more intimidating features. He...

    Review: ‘McCanick’ Starring David Morse & Cory Monteith

    Certain ingredients are essential to gritty cop dramas. Especially for the ones that blur the lines between protagonist and antagonist by having an anti-hero be the central character. In recent films and TV shows, the anti-hero has been on the steady rise, from Walter White in “Breaking Bad” to Jord...

    Review: 'Go Down Death' Is A Unique, Strange & Unforgettable Half-Remembered Dream

    Jonathan Mallory Sinus is credited as the “folklorist” responsible for the vignettes that follow at the beginning of “Go Down Death." What follows is a beautiful woman applying makeup and a man on guitar. Some of the world’s greatest filmmakers would argue that these are the only elements one needs ...
