The Innkeepers

7th June 2012 -

 Movie Review

Like a late-1970s haunted house thriller, this film subdues its scares, filling the screen with red herrings and off-handed comedy while building a creepy atmosphere. Yet while there are several genuinely chilling moments, the story...

Stake Land

16th June 2011 -

 Movie Review

Wendy and Lucy

10th December 2008 -

 Movie Review

A prime specimen of American independent cinema unencumbered by overbearing social commentary, Kelly Reichardt's serene Wendy and Lucy finds more startling emotional honesty in the relationship between a young woman, her lost dog, and a...

Liberty Kid

 Movie Review

Dear Ma,After seeing Steve Buscemi's sophomore directorial effort, Animal Factory (following 1996's Trees Lounge), I nearly reconsidered choosing film criticism as a career path. For the first hour of this film, it seemed the...

Margarita Happy Hour

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

"I'm so exhausted all the time... Can't ask my mom for help... You wanna split some nachos?... So I spent my whole friggin' day at Medicaid... Drink up, ladies -- only...

River of Grass

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Quirky and deadpan -- and I never thought I'd say this, but it's possible to be overly so.River of Grass, set amidst the endless weeds of the Florida Everglades, features to go-nowhere losers, a bored...

Wendigo

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review
