A novel transformation
An Asian leading man is, it seems, too big a gamble for Hollywood’s myopic big players.

Military Intelligence and You!

Clever, clever conceit
No satirist can take credit for making “freedom” and “liberty” sound as campy and as bullying as they have lately.
By: BETSY SHERMAN  |  March 19, 2008



Dutifully soporific
Charlize Theron likes to ugly herself up for roles, hiding her beauty behind dishwater hair and puffy eyes.

Drillbit Taylor

Leftovers from the '80s
Early on in this Owen Wilson vehicle, someone says, “I got an old saying for you: you can’t polish a turd.” Indeed.

Two-hour nihilistic melee
At best a reminder of doomsdays past, at worst a symptom of what’s ailing the genre today.
By: ELIZABETH FLOCK  |  March 19, 2008


Snow Angels

Call it American Ugly
When a film opens with a shotgun blast that interrupts a lousy high-school-band practice on a miserable winter day, the prospects for a happy ending don’t look good.

From crude to cute
Since the ’80s and E.T. and the Gremlins, gross-out humor, special effects, and sentimentality have combined to seduce younger audiences.

Auf der Anderen Seite|The Edge of Heaven

Borderless realm of love, loss, and reconciliation
Maybe opening this year’s Boston Turkish Film Festival with a movie by Fatih Akin is the festival’s way of calling attention to Turkey’s hopes of joining the European Union.

Hell boy

Fassbinder’s Berlin Alexanderplatz at the ICA
Fassbinderians rejoice — your crucifixion, your tribulative martyrdom, has arrived.
By: MICHAEL ATKINSON  |  March 18, 2008


A Casa de Alice|Alice's House

Artfully done soap opera

By: PETER KEOUGH  |  March 12, 2008



Courage and naïveté
Six sightless Tibetan students take a demanding field trip toward equality via Lhakpa Ri, a 23,000-foot peak on the north side of Everest. Blindsight, however, impedes more than it inspires.
By: NICK MCCARTHY  |  March 12, 2008


Ne Touchez Pas la Hache|La duchesse de Langeais

Art vis-à-vis life
He may have just turned 80, but Jacques Rivette still gets a kick out of the parallel-mirror effect of art vis-à-vis life.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  March 12, 2008


Married Life

The world of half-baked ideas
Maybe Sam Mendes’s upcoming adaptation of Richard Yates’s Revolutionary Road will offer a more genuine look at the moral and cultural battleground of this period.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  March 12, 2008


Never Back Down

A Karate Kid ripoff
You’ll root for Jake. You will!
By: MARK BAZER  |  March 12, 2008


10,000 B.C.

Far out "history"
A really small continent, since the Anglo hero, D’leh (Steven Strait), is able to traverse its (flat?) surface in a matter of days without so much as needing a shave.
By: BRETT MICHEL  |  March 12, 2008


Horton Hears a Who!

Good-natured, egalitarian, and mildly stupid
Although it scatters a few jokes for adults, some of them earnestly funny, Horton lacks the wit and layered cleverness of the good animated films of recent years.
By: JASON O'BRYAN  |  March 12, 2008


Memory laps

Van Sant takes time for a ride in Paranoid Park
The memory plays tricks, but not enough to change the past.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  December 16, 2008


The most dangerous Games

Michael Haneke’s thriller still feels Funny
Although it has only one really graphic moment of violence, Michael Haneke’s Funny Games probably distresses audiences more than the torture porn in the Saw and Hostel series.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  December 16, 2008


College Road Trip

Another Martin Lawrence shtick
Every time I go to see a Martin Lawrence movie, I keep thinking, when are they going to finally pull the plug?
By: TOM MEEK  |  March 12, 2008


Die fälscher|The Counterfeiters

Not worth the Oscar
It’s fitting that a film called Die fälscher|The Counterfeiters should have won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film, since that’s the most bogus category in the bunch.
