Restless

 Movie Review

Van Sant returns to his earthy-airy style for this story of a young man coming to terms with the concept of mortality. It's effortlessly honest, with edgy humour balancing the dark themes. Although it's also...

Alexander The Last

16th March 2009 -

 Movie Review

For the last couple of years, filmmaker Joe Swanberg has been one of the unofficial "people to watch" in the indie movie world. A passionate participant in the "mumblecore" movement, he gained attention with Hannah...

Mumford

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Mumford reminded me how nice it is to forget yourself in the midst of a good story - Lawrence Kasdan's (The Big Chill, Grand Canyon) latest charm will keep you grinning. Speaking of smiles...

The Anniversary Party

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

I have long admired Jennifer Jason Leigh for her courage in the face of critical adversity, cheering every mumble in Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle, clinging for dear life to the screwed warble-songs of...

Adaptation

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Wrap your noodle around this one. Real-life screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich; Human Nature) writes a screenplay about screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Nicolas Cage) writing a screenplay adaptation of a real-life book, The Orchid...

Light Sleeper

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Light Sleeper feels like a serious '80s film, though it was made all the way in 1992. It's a relic of the drug era, filled with a soulful performance from WIllem Dafoe (a conflicted upper-class...

A Fish In The Bathtub

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Mildly funny but mostly flat, this Jerry Stiller-Anne Meara collaboration (a real life married couple) has the pair splitting up and trying to reconcile. He's difficult, she's intolerant. Their kids get caught in...

Happiness

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Holy smokes.Happiness has been mired in controversy for the entire year, and not without good reason. Put simply, Happiness is one of the most shocking films I've ever seen - this from a man...

Songcatcher

1st November 2005 -

Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

(Proofread pending)Jim Carrey makes a four-course meal of the Tim-Burtonesque surreal scenery in "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events," completely overshadowing the story that is supposed to be about three crafty young orphans stuck...

Songcatcher

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Wonderfully chameleonic actress Janet McTeer ("The King Is Alive," "Tumbleweeds") gives another of her distinctive and deeply immersed performances in "Songcatcher" as a priggish 1900s music scholar.A terse, obstinate, overeducated woman who is deeply resentful...

Mumford

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

"Mumford" is a weightless comedy with old-fashioned appeal, the kind of innocuous, affable picture in which happiness is just a musical montage sequence away.Fifty years ago, it might have been a Jimmy Stewart movie, with...

The Anniversary Party

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Making a Hollywood story with a decidedly un-Hollywood flair, co-writers, co-directors and co-stars Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming take a casual, almost guerilla approach to their collaborative conception called "The Anniversary Party."It's a shoestring...

Orange County

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Somewhere inside the surprisingly fresh, sharply jocular, angst-of-youth comedy "Orange County" there's a trite, typical teen movie struggling to get out. But director Jake Kasden just keeps out-witting the monster, pulling the carpet out from...

Adaptation

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Poking around in the mind of John Malkovich was a wonderfully weird, wildly conceptual experience in 1999's "Being John Malkovich," but the ingenious "Adaptation" is a testament to the fact that screenwriter Charlie Kaufman's head...

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Having dabbled in John Malkovich's mind in "Being John Malkovich," then delved into his own neurotic noggin in "Adaptation," ingeniously idiosyncratic screenwriter Charlie Kaufman wraps his head around themes of lucid-dreaming and lost love in...
