Film Review: Freedom
'Freedom' unsuccessfully attempts to tie together two obliquely connected narratives, set a hundred years apart, about forgiveness and redemption in the face of slavery’s unremitting cruelty.
Film Review: I Believe In Unicorns
A teenage romance told from the girl’s point of view, 'I Believe in Unicorns' is a haunting rite-of-passage flick, but seriously undercut by its magical-realism overkill.
Film Review: Aloft
Visually striking but pretentious film about a working-class woman who finds her life’s purpose as a hands-on healer at the expense of the son she has abandoned.
Film Review: Good Kill
A fascinating character study of a fighter pilot engaging in drone warfare from afar that regrettably becomes a thinly veiled critique of America’s anti-terrorist war efforts.
Film Review: Cas & Dylan
This underwhelming road trip flick cannot be saved even by a fine Richard Dreyfuss.
Film Review: 24 Days: The True Story of the Ilan Halmi Affair
Based on the events surrounding a 2006 kidnapping in Paris, '24 Days' is a suspenseful and compelling film that’s all the more powerful because it doesn’t shy away from contemporary anti-Semitism in France.
Film Review: Anita B.
Well-done coming-of-age story about a young Holocaust survivor set in post-war Czechoslovakia.
Film Review: Home
Short of some nice special effects, 'Home' is an underwhelming animated 3D flick with boilerplate story and themes.
Film Review: Kumiko the Treasure Hunter
Lyrical, memorable and beautifully conceived film about a woman charging after an elusive dream misfires in its final moments.
Film Review: Kidnapping Mr. Heineken
'Kidnapping Mr. Heineken' has elements of an exciting crime caper and at moments scores, but in the end misses its mark.
