Will the Weekend Box Office 'Get Hard' Or Go 'Home'?
For the first time in a while, we have an actual competition for the number one spot at the box office.
Film Review: Get Hard
Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart join forces for a fitfully amusing but problematically conceived modern-day version of 'Trading Places.'
Film Review: Home
Short of some nice special effects, 'Home' is an underwhelming animated 3D flick with boilerplate story and themes.
Clash of the Titans: Abel Ferrara and IFC Films square off over release of ‘Welcome to New York’
In one corner, ferociously independent veteran New York filmmaker Abel Ferrara. In the other, veteran distributor IFC Films, longtime champion of offbeat, often challenging independent (the "I" in IFC) filmmaking.
Film Review: While We're Young
Sharply observed, often LOL comedy about artistic integrity and the shrinking horizons of middle age.
The title refers to the occupation of one of a group of friends entering a song contest in this utterly inconsequential bit of froth from Israeli auteur Eytan Fox.
Considering the underlying sordid real-life scandal and filmmaker Abel Ferrara’s tendency to push envelopes, this self-proclaimed fictional take on 'L’Affaire Dominique Strauss-Kahn' and the political celebrity’s alleged rape of a Manhattan hotel housekeeper is comfortably restrained even in its few sexual sequences. Ferrara, of course, fighting his distributors because of the film’s mandated R rating, wanted otherwise.
The initially confusing backstory of a kidnapping becomes ever more gripping as the truth is revealed in this Brazilian thriller, as are the brutal consequences of adultery.
