    The Adventures Of Tintin—movie review

    Being completely unfamiliar with Hergé’s popular illustrated stories, I came to this movie as a blank slate, with no expectations.

    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo—movie review

    The American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is well-made, well-cast, tense and exciting. I just wish I hadn’t seen it all before.

    L.A. Rebellion 2011 Retrospective Review - Jamaa Fanaka's "Emma Mae" + Interview w/ Star Jerri Hayes

    When I asked Jerri Hayes how it felt to revisit her star turn in Jamaa Fanaka’s second feature Emma Mae (1976) after a recent screening, she answered without hesitation. “You know, it’s so different; I was sitting there relating to Emma Mae like it wasn’t me” she r...

    How Glenn Close's Cross-Dressing Performance In "Albert Nobbs" Makes the Movie

    "Albert Nobbs" was a longtime passion project for Glenn Close, and it's easy to see why. Adapting George Moore's 1927 short story "The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs," about a Victorian-era Dublin woman who spends decades disguised as a man to find work, Close--co-producer...

    Angelina Jolie's Shockingly Good "In the Land of Blood and Honey"

    For years, it has been easy to dismiss Angelina Jolie as an extremely beautiful flake. Even her work for humanitarian causes could seem like the image-burnishing, manic-y upside of her earlier, darker bad-girls days. Not anymore. In the Land Of Blood and Honey, which she wrote and directed, is a ...

    Critics Keep Voting for Tree of Life, from Chicago to Indiewire Poll

    Critics are lining up behind Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life." While critics groups don't have as much predictive impact as Guild awards like the Screen Actors Guild, they do add to to winners' patina, build credibility and consensus, and keep attention on some must-see titles.

    GREY MATTERS: Martin Scorsese's interesting year

    Review: 'In the Land of Blood and Honey'

    Angelina Jolie's presence in "In the Land of Blood and Honey," a film she directed but wisely chose not to star in, is both a gift and a curse. On the gift end, it's a megawatt star bringing some serious attention to an incident in our recent history that has either been glossed over, underreported,...
