    Review & Round-up: Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Opens A Day Early, December 20

    "The Social Network'''s Rooney Mara delivers Salander in a smart expertly executed film that takes the time to make clear plot developments and changing dynamics between investigator Blomkvist (well-played by Daniel Craig) and the androgynous punk researcher who has a woman in her bed when he first ...

    Marrakech Film Festival '11 Reviews: 'Land of Oblivion' Starring Olga Kurylenko & '180°' The Swiss-German Version Of 'Crash' (Basically)

    "Land of Oblivion" It is 25 years ago in the small Ukrainian town of Pripyat. People are fishing. A boy goes to look at the tree he and his father planted. A woman prepares for her wedding. And then it starts to rain - not, in itself, a doom-laden event, except if you know that Pripyat w...

    The Best Film of the Year that Critics Forgot

    My favorite movie released in 2011 has been conspicuously absent from film critics' year-end best lists. Maybe it's because the film premiered more than over a year ago at the 2010 Cannes festival, but its highly affective, penetrating account of marriage, parenting, and infidelity is sti...

    Review: David Fincher’s ‘Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Is An Intense But Dispassionate Thriller

    Looking at “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” it’s hard not to think of the dark thriller cum procedural as director David Fincher’s “The Departed." Notwithstanding both films being inspired by/remade from acclaimed foreign predecessors, Fincher and Scorsese alike seem to be saying with them, “You w...

    L.A. Rebellion 2011 Retrospective Review - Larry Clark's "Passing Through"

    There are two filmmakers named Larry Clark, and this is NOT about the Larry Clark whose ephebophiliac imagination has given us films like Kids, Bully, and Wassup Rockers! Just so we’re clear, this Larry Clark is Black, a Cleveland native who went to UCLA along with Charles Burnett, Julie ...

    Review: 'The Sitter' Is A Rough, But Absurdist Romp & Serves As a Natural End Point For David Gordon Green's Comedy Exploration

    While formulaic and lazy in its plotting, employing clichés upon clichés and opportune plot conveniences at every turn, David Gordon Green’s scrappy, loose and rough-around-the-edges mainstream comedy, “The Sitter,” is still by and large, an enjoyable little lark than...

    Marrakech Film Festival '11 Review: There's A Reason They Don't Make 'Em Like 'Black Gold' Any More

    Left in a strange kind of limbo, partly due to a delay in finding U.S. distribution, and therefore a large swathe of the Western audience to whom it rather panders, Jean-Jacques Annaud's period sand saga "Black Gold" makes an odd addition to a festival line-up.

    SIMON SAYS: THE SITTER, blah blah, balls on fire

    This is it, folks: David Gordon Green isn’t the guy that made George Washington and All the Real Girls anymore. Now, he’s the guy that made Pineapple Express and Your Highness. Which is a transition that doesn’t really deserve an award or a hearty handshake or even much praise really. But for the sa...

    Roger Corman, Major Artist: 'Corman's World' Makes the Case

    Roger Corman has maintained a reputation as the B-movie master for half a century, but it's a distinction that has come at the cost of wider appreciation. "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" looks to counter that conclusion by exploring Corman's influence on contemp...

    From Curly To Cobra Woman, On DVD

    While news articles report the decline of the once-robust DVD market, film buffs and collectors have occasion to rejoice. More rare, obscure, and once-unattainable titles are being released now than ever before, from the camp classic 'Cobra Woman' with Maria Montez to Larry Cohen’s 'The Private File...
