Film Review: Vince Giordano: There’s a Future in the Past
Lovers of big-band music especially—but everyone, really—will enjoy this loving look at a man and his nostalgic mission.
Film Review: Hickey
This bland, uninspired Los Angeles-set comedy features a hero who won’t go east to a dazzling college future. Hard to muster sympathy for that, but harder still to find any laughs here.
Film Review: The Bad Kids
Students on the brink of disaster are the subject of this admirably heartfelt and uncondescending documentary.
Film Review: City of Dead Men
That portentously pretentious title is just a hint of how bad this ode to living on the youthful edge in Colombia really is.
Film Review: Harry Benson: Shoot First
If ever there was a photographer’s photographer, it is Harry Benson, and this doc does full justice to him and his mind-boggling longevity and body of work.
Film Review: My Annoying Brother
Call it cornball for the way this ostensible black comedy morphs into a family tearjerker, but I defy you not to be moved by its literal bromance.
Film Review: All We Had
Katie Holmes makes her directorial debut with this soapy mess—and should probably stick to her day job.
Film Review: Bodyguards: Secret Lives from the Watchtower
Despite its juvenile, portentous title, and its framing sometimes tackily smacking of the dreaded “TMZ,” this study of the big boys who protect the big stars offers surprising insight.
Film Review: Best and Most Beautiful Things
The best film about being blind this critic has ever seen, particularly fortuitous in its “star,” a quirky, heart-melting gamine you will never forget.
