    DOC NYC '11 Review: 'Scenes Of A Crime' Is A Riveting, True-Crime Documentary Worthy Of Errol Morris

    When the West Memphis Three were freed just a wee bit before Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's third film about their plight ("Paradise Lost 3") was about to hit the festival circuit, people were again reminded of the brass strength of cinema. After the first of the trilogy was aired ...

    Review: 'J. Edgar' Presents A Highly Controversial Figure With Dry Objectivity & Dramatic Inertia

    An exercise of stultifying blandness and dramatic inertia, “J. Edgar” is second- or third-tier Eastwood, the sort of respectably proficient but forgettable work that he did all too often before “Million Dollar Baby” reminded audiences that one of Hollywood’s oldest dogs...

    Juvenilia As Art: Harold and Kumar and Sonic the Hedgehog.

    I just picked up SEGA's newly released videogame "Sonic Generations," a throwback to the original "Sonic" game released on SEGA's early platform 20 years ago. The new game aims to be a nostalgia trip and delivers on that promise in spades. By that I mean it satisfies...

Edgar, at least, will play better for the older Academy--many of whom lived through the decades depicted in this ambitious J. Edgar Hoover biopic dominated by Leonardo DiCaprio...

    DOC NYC '11 Review: 'Kumaré' A Morally Questionable Docu-Comedy About Expensive Yoga Gurus

    Sick of spiritualists charging an arm and a leg just to spout incredibly vague musings designed to help you? Think they're all a bunch of scammers taking advantage of those who actually need real assistance? If so, you're in luck, because Vikram Gandhi is on your wavelength. This filmmaker has made a documentary not unlike "Borat" in which he pretends to be a native Indian guru (code name: Kumare), creating his own philosophy and gathering very dedicated followers.

    Finally! Laurel & Hardy On Dvd

    It’s a cultural crime that the greatest comedy team of all time has been so forsaken on DVD…until now. Therefore, I’m happy to report that Laurel & Hardy The Essential Collection (Vivendi) fully lives up to its name. It includes all of the team’s talkie shorts&...
