ExoticMarigoldHotel

Review: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

A pleasant diversion
Filled with Indian (and British) clichés, it is nonetheless a pleasant diversion that doesn't involve special effects or 3D glasses.

review Chimpanzee

Review: Chimpanzee

Disney-distributed documentary
Following in the footsteps of African Cats , this Disney-distributed documentary combines breathtaking wildlife footage with silly, self-conscious voiceover narration aimed at preschoolers.

Dry romp on the high seas

film TheRaven

Review: The Raven

John Cusack as Poe
If only Poe could find the solution to the mystery in his own texts! Or if the filmmakers made any use of them.

Review: A Simple Life

Ann Hui's aptly titled film
The most sensitive and heartbreaking depiction of old age since Korean director Lee Chang-dong's Poetry, Hong Kong filmmaker Ann Hui's aptly titled account of the slow decline of a beloved housekeeper doesn't involve violent crime like Lee's film, but does recreate the evanescence of everyday life with equal evocativeness.

list_marley_66

Review: Marley

Bob Marley remains elusive
After two-and-half hours of hagiography, talking heads, archival footage, still photos, and snatches of his songs, Bob Marley remains elusive in Kevin Macdonald's documentary.

list_arctic2_66

Review: To the Arctic

The Arctic is still melting, people
Heart-wrenching footage of polar cubs wrestling and caribou mothers pushing their young to higher ground isn't necessary to educate the viewer on the thoroughly depressing domino effect of melting sea ice. But hot damn, does it help.

list_okgood_66

Review: OK, Good

Ridiculous commercial auditions
Daniel Martinico's minimal, elliptical style and his use of repetitions and variations almost overcome the predictability of this case study in repression and alienation.

list_america_66

Review: God Bless America

Bobcat Goldthwait's best work yet
The latest dark comedy from Bobcat Goldthwait tackles both vapid celebrity culture (i.e., Paris Hilton, the Kardashians and American Idol) and the indignity of being an office drone.

Comedy and sleep disorders
What compels people to perform comedy?
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  April 18, 2012



list_kid_66

Review: Kid-Thing

Absurd and gut-wrenching
If Spirit of the Beehive took place in Napoleon Dynamite country, it might turn out like David Zellner's absurd and wrenching coming-of-age tale.

list_heights_66

Review: Wuthering Heights

Back to the moors
Unlike in her harsh romances set in Britain's urban wastelands, it's nature that rules in British director Andrea Arnold's audacious adaptation of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights .

list_weiwei_66

Review: Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

China's most famous artist
Chinese activist Ai Weiwei combines the chutzpah of Michael Moore, the antic iconoclasm of Duchamp, and the humility of Gandhi, and it's not enough.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  April 18, 2012

list_fairy_66

Review: The Fairy

Surreal urban fantasy

list_anita_66

Review: Anita

The aftermath of a 1994 anti-Semitic terrorist bombing in Buenos Aires
The young protagonist of Anita may grapple with Down syndrome, but Argentine director Marcos Carnevale wisely avoids advocacy melodrama territory.

list_damsels_66

Review: Damsels in Distress

Whit Stillman's first film in 13 years
Damsels in Distress , writer-director Whit Stillman's first film in 13 years, is a comedic fable set at a fictional college in the East at some indeterminate time that seems like the present but might as well not be.

Review: Lockout

Guy Pearce rises above the rest
Every once in a while, an actor can single-handedly hoist a film to near greatness, despite a banal script and subpar direction.

Who knew that PTSD is the secret to an ideal boyfriend?

list_stooges_66

Review: The Three Stooges

Funny and faithful
The Farrelly Brothers' Three Stooges pastiche, while not poifect, is funny and faithful, recreating slap-shtick (and sound effects!) and adding sharp one-liners.
