Movie review: Bel Ami

Review: Bel Ami

The film adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's 1885 novel

Short Take: High School

Review: High School

Inane and ignorant
A pot comedy that won't reward even the most easily satisfied stoner, High School is just as inane and ignorant as the Reefer Madness -style films it aims to satirize.

Short Take: Madagascar 3

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

The franchise matures
The franchise that began as a tame kiddie pleaser about four pampered zoo animals lost in the wild has matured and sharpened its teeth, perhaps thanks to Noah Baumbach ( The Squid and the Whale ) collaborating on the script.

Short Take: Snow White and the Huntsman

Review: Snow White and the Huntsman

Not the old clichés

ShortTake: Moonrise Kingdom

Review: Moonrise Kingdom

Wes Anderson paints his masterpiece
Wes Anderson should always make movies featuring characters who are pubescent or younger — like Rushmore , which until this film was his best.

Review:ChernobylDiaries

Review: Chernobyl Diaries

Tried and true formula
More akin to a meander through a haunted house than a fulfilling feature film, the latest work from Paranormal Activity auteur Oren Peli (he produces, Bradley Parker directs) relies on his tried-and-true formula of favoring atmospheric terror over visceral scares.
By: JAKE MULLIGAN  |  May 29, 2012

Review: Elena

Review: Elena

Domestic servitude
Andrei Zvyagintsev's film, a Special Jury Prize winner at Cannes 2011, becomes more than a domestic melodrama: a grim, effective allegory of the daily whirl in Putinland.
By: GERALD PEARY  |  May 30, 2012

ShortTake:For Greater Glory

Review: For Greater Glory

Never-ending war
Bring coffee, because director Dean Wright's dramatization of the 3-year-long Cristero War (1926-9) seems to last longer than the Mexican conflict itself.
By: BRETT MICHEL  |  May 29, 2012

ShortTake: The Intouchables

Review: The Intouchables

Traveling well
French comedies rarely travel well, but The Intouchables , the first film from the writer-director team of Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache to be commercially released here, has earned its status as an international blockbuster.

ShortTake: Men In Black 3

Review: Men In Black 3

Infinite possiblities

Film Review: Polisse

Review: Polisse

Maïwenn's third feature film
The third feature by French actress and filmmaker Maïwenn, about the inner-workings of Paris's Child Protection Unit (CPU), is certainly kinetic, though also mannered and hyperbolic.

Film: Where Do We Go Now?

Review: Where Do We Go Now?

Nadine Labaki's whimsical film
Lebanese director Nadine Labaki's whimsical film about internecine slaughter has a tone problem from the very start: a group of widows engage in a goofy line dance while the voiceover narrator bewails the death toll of religious warfare.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  May 22, 2012

Short Takes: Bernie

Review: Bernie

Everybody loves Bernie
So beloved was Bernie that when he shot his elderly companion Marjorie Nugent, the meanest — and richest — woman in town, district attorney Danny Buck Davidson had to move the trial nearly 50 miles away.
