film_aplaceatthetable

Review: A Place At The Table


Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush cover a lot of ground in their heartbreaking documentary examining the hunger experienced by nearly 50 million Americans, but at less than 90 minutes, it feels a bit overstuffed.

Review: Dark Skies


"Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying."

Review: Let My People Go!


First-time French director Mikael Buch makes it easy to categorize his characters in this sometimes funny, often strident farce.

Review: Phantom


Simultaneously bizarre and banal, director Todd Robinson's military procedural seems designed to please no one.

the_sweeney

Review: The Sweeney


No single subgenre is as tired as "loose-cannon cop breaks the rules to bring down a band of ruthless criminals."

movie_habibi

Review: Habibi


As seen in Susan Youssef's wrenching Habibi , it's not easy being a poet in Palestine.

FILM_sansho_list

Review: Sansho the Bailiff + The Ballad of Narayama

Japanese masters
When Japan's Kenji Mizoguchi died in 1956 at the age of 58, fellow filmmaker Akira Kurosawa remarked that "in the death of Mizoguchi, Japanese film lost its truest creator."

vodka_empire

Daniel Edelstyn launched this film project after reading the spirited diary of his late grandmother, Maroussia Zorokovich, whose wealthy Jewish family split from Ukraine as the Bolsheviks were taking control.

johndies-attheend

Review: John Dies At The End


The conspiracy-laden plot, told with fetishistic devotion in numerous expository conversations — including one with the dog — becomes so convoluted that it morphs into sci-fi satire.

identity_thief

Review: Identity Thief


Seth Gordon directs this funny, though formulaic, mismatched-duo comedy in which Jason Bateman's straight-laced family man must nab Melissa McCarthy, the identity thief who has ruined his credit, and haul her from Florida to Denver for prosecution.

review_tabu

Review: Tabu


F.W. Murnau's indelible Tabu (1931), a last gasp of the silent era about young lovers cast out of their Polynesian paradise, gets a postcolonial gloss in Portuguese filmmaker (and former film critic) Miguel Gomes's similarly two-part meta-movie.
By: ANN LEWINSON  |  February 13, 2013



film_happypeople

Review: Happy People: A Year In The Taiga


What Robert Flaherty did with title cards in his silent Nanook of the North , Werner Herzog manages with declamatory voiceover in Happy People : romanticization of the austere, self-reliant lives of hunters and trappers in the icebound north.

safe-haven

Review: Safe Haven


Somewhere along the way Nicholas Sparks went from being just a bestselling author of preachy schmaltz to a full-on franchise (he produces the movies of his books).
By: TOM MEEK  |  February 14, 2013

the-last-reef

Review: The Last Reef 3D: Cities Beneath The Sea


The Last Reef , like Cameron's environmental epic, is the vehicle for a message, a call for cutting carbon emissions that are destroying the Earth's coral reefs — home to wondrous life forms, including crocodile fish, giant sea worms, and Finding Nemo –fan favorite, the clown fish — as the seas become more acidic.

white-zombie

Review: White Zombie

Working stiffs
This Kino Classics release is worth it if only for historical purposes, since it demonstrates that from the start zombie films embodied the Marxist paradigm of capitalism (Lugosi) versus labor (zombies).

film_die_hard

Review: A Good Day To Die Hard


A Good Day To Die Hard is a movie for people who like blowin' stuff up, evidently a favorite pastime of director John Moore, whose action scenes make about as much sense as his script, which was likely written on a cocktail napkin.
