Mr. Untouchable

20th December 2007 -

 Movie Review

It has to be the oddest situation of pointless one-upmanship imaginable. On the one side is Frank Lucas, glamorized urban criminal and self-proclaimed king of '70s Harlem heroin. His corporate, buttoned-down approach to people poisoning...

Awake

3rd December 2007 -

 Movie Review

Surprising, really, that "anesthetic awareness" -- helpless, immobile and, it should be noted, very rare consciousness during surgery -- hasn't been explored in a thriller before. Or maybe it has and I don't remember; that...

Redacted

16th November 2007 -

 Movie Review

Brian De Palma is some cool customer. His camera can linger longingly on a beautiful woman's torso or a bloody, severed corpse, and in the mechanical gaze of his camera, he can feel no pain....

Broken English

16th November 2007 -

 Movie Review

Don't you just love Parker Posey? She's such an original talent, and it's irksome to see her do so well in a film that just doesn't cut it. Broken English plays like a tired retread...

Fay Grim

28th April 2007 -

 Movie Review

Roughly ten years after cementing his place as an offbeat indie favorite, Hal Hartley revisits the characters that put him there. His 1997 Henry Fool, a screenplay-award winner at Cannes, introduced us to lonely garbage...

Diggers

28th April 2007 -

 Movie Review

Listless clam diggers in 1970s Long Island... sounds like a recipe for comedy, right?I'm not sure what director Katherine Dieckmann (best known as an R.E.M. video director) thought she was grabbing hold of here, but...

One Last Thing...

23rd November 2006 -

 Movie Review

One Last Thing... was another one of those experimental films -- experimental from a business standpoint, not from an artistic one -- in which the film would be released in theaters and on DVD on...

The Guys

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

There was much pain on September 11, 2001 when so many lives were lost. Some of it was very personal and close, but it's fair to say that it affected all of us, in America...

Love in the Time of Money

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Filmmaker's dilemma: You want to make a movie with a lot of sex scenes and no plot whatsoever, but you have to make something respectable. Hell, Robert Redford is an executive producer! He isn't going...

Down To You

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Down to You was a case of adding insult to injury.The injury was having to see this film at all. I would rather suffer whiplash in a VW bug than sit through this film...

Too Much Sleep

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Indie filmmakers who want to make their own version of After Hours better damn well know what they're doing. In his first feature, David Maquiling appears to have a grasp of the basics, but...

Coffee And Cigarettes

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Coffee and cigarettes. What is it about this magical combination of caffeine and cancer that's so irresistible to millions of café and pub patrons around the world? Despite its title, don't go looking to Jim...

Series 7

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

The title Series 7 stands for the seventh season of the highest-rated reality based show on television, The Contenders. Set a few years from now, the program rules are laid out with unsparing precision:...

Three Seasons

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

The worst thing about Asian cinema is when the characters inevitably start singing to themselves. Three Seasons has a lot of singing, compounded by a lot of talking about flowers, which is the only...

Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

When Enron collapsed three years ago, it was hard to sort out what actually happened aside from billions of dollars being lost and a whole lot of paper shredding. The important new documentary, Enron: The...
