Film Review: Against the Sun
A good old-fashioned story of American wartime heroism that's ironically less jingoistic than the major-studio release American Sniper.
Film Review: We'll Never Have Paris
Possibly groundbreaking as a rom-com aimed at the newly empowered nerd-chic audience, this indie effort only intermittently charms.
Film Review: Taken 3
I don't know who you are, but if you let yourself go to this movie, it will find you and it will kill your love of action films, Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, and plots involving knocking someone off for the insurance money.
Film Review: The World Made Straight
Powerful, highly authentic drama of a young man in 1970s backwoods North Carolina struggling with himself and his roots, and finding himself uncomfortably between a drug boss and the professorial dealer who's taken him in.
Film Review: Skating to New York
Beautifully shot teen wilderness adventure suffers from shallow characterizations and a highly troubling plot misstep.
Film Review: A Little Game
Would-be whimsical serio-comedy about a Greenwich Village ten-year-old who learns about chess and life from a stranger she meets in a park.
Film Review: The Toy Soldiers
Powerful, haunting, oddly sweet yet utterly unsentimental film about 1980s teens, with five interlocking stories, showcases a prodigious talent in emerging filmmaker Erik Peter Carlson.
Film Review: Delusions of Guinevere
Unfunny, uninsightful indie comedy about a washed-up former child star desperately seeking fame.
Film Review: Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain
Imperfect but ultimately affecting docudrama by an Indian filmmaker chronicles the 1984 Bhopal chemical disaster in ground-level, human terms.
Film Review: Hit by Lightning
Unfunny, poorly directed romantic comedy about a schlub anxious to go along with his beautiful dream girl's plot to kill her husband.
