WrathOfTheTitans film

Review: The Wrath of the Titans

Sword & sandal frenzy
The folks who gave us the bombastic 3D remake of Clash of the Titans unleash Jonathan Liebesman's Wrath , and it's sensational — if you like being stuffed into a trash can and rolled down a hill.

Elaborations on Claude Lanzmann's Holocaust account
After nine and a half hours of Shoah , what remains to be said?

Review: Jeff, Who Lives at Home

Skillful contrivance
The title slacker (Jason Segel) in the Duplass Brothers' meditation on fate and fatuity is obsessed with M. Night Shyamalan's Signs , and the filmmakers' gentle irony about his bad taste exemplifies their empathy and tonal skill.
