Film Review: Horns

Film Review: Nightcrawler

A media satire that has little new to say about its subject but nonetheless thrives courtesy of its seedy, nocturnal L.A. atmosphere and a magnetic, uninhibited lead performance by Jake Gyllenhaal. More »

The Talented Mr. Amini: Oscar-nominated screenwriter helms Patricia Highsmith’s devious ‘Two Faces of January’

Boxtrolls feature
Out of the box: Laika animation studio conjures Victorian England with tale of subterranean ‘Boxtrolls’
