Review: For A Good Time, Call ...

Matthew Akers's provocative documentary

Review: Premium Rush

David Koepp's veloci-thriller
Note to the bike-porn fans at the Brattle: with all of its shots of toned, sweaty shoulder muscles arched over handlebars, you may be the only audience able to get off on this veloci-thriller.

short-take--Oogieloves-Trikes_list

Review: The Oogieloves and the Big Balloon Adventure

Multi-colored blobs
As an "interactive" movie, in which the whole family is encouraged to sing along and dance, The Oogieloves fails miserably.

short-take-compliance_list

Review: Compliance

Behind the Milgram experiments
Filmmaker Craig Zobel ( Great World of Sound ) takes an infamous 2004 rape case — in which a caller claiming to be a cop talked a McDonald's manager and later her fiance into assaulting a teenage worker — and uses this as a basis of a thoroughly disturbing, sometimes mean-spirited indie narrative film.

short-take-cosmopolis_list

Review: Cosmopolis

Cronenberg's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novella
In a scene in David Cronenberg's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novella, as Robert Pattinson grimaces while having a proctological exam, you realize that throughout the whole movie he's been acting like he has a finger up his butt.

short-take-expendables_list

Review: The Expendables 2

Phony machismo

Review: Hit & Run

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard star in this rom-com/heist
Are Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard destined for the ill-fated end that befalls most onscreen-and-offscreen couples?

short-takes-sparkle2_list

Review: Sparkle

Salim Akil's reinterpretation of the 1976 musical drama
There have been worse swan songs committed to film, but Salim Akil's reinterpretation of the 1976 musical drama leaves much to be desired, since the meteoric rise and fall of a three-piece girl group is now well-tread, Oscar-nominated territory.
By: MONICA CASTILLO  |  August 22, 2012

short-take-Side-by-Side_lis

Review: Side by Side


Chris Kenneally's documentary about the inexorable rise of digital as the medium in which films are being shot and disseminated is a must-see for AV geeks and cinephiles — even die-hard celluloid fans.

Review: 2 Days In New York

Rowdy follow-up to 2 Days In Paris

short-take-paranorman_list

Review: ParaNorman

Throwback to Amblin's summer fare of the '80s
This second feature from animation house LAIKA (the company behind Coraline ) is the type of holiday entertainment that kids (and adults) used to tune into annually, back when Rankin/Bass was creating wonders of stop-motion.

Review: Restless City

Andrew Dosunmu's pseudo-noir
Andrew Dosunmu's pseudo-noir Restless City tries to avoid "style over substance."
