    Review: 'Ice Age: Continental Drift' Is Pleasurably Rudderless

    The "Ice Age" franchise is like the "Shrek" series of Blue Sky Studios (a kind of mini-Pixar based in suburban Connecticut) – a new entry comes out every couple of years, usually to diminishing returns (creatively) but tons of box office. The last one, 2009's deliriously dull "Ice Age: Dawn of the D...

    Review: 'Farewell, My Queen' Introduces Lesbianism Into The Marie Antoinette Story To No Great Effect

    In the land of the costume drama, truly, films about Marie Antoinette are Queen, promising lavish sets, romantic intrigue and shocking decadence -- but they don't always deliver. Director Benoît Jacquot's uninspiring take on the period opened the Berlin Film Festival days ago, but something about th...

    Now and Then: The Extraordinary Kenneth Lonergan, 'Margaret' & 'You Can Count on Me'

    Rare are squabbles over production and distribution as fraught as those that accompanied the long gestation and brief theatrical life of Kenneth Lonergan's second feature. It would seem that a film must be something special to elicit such strong feelings, and "Margaret" is that film and then some. I...

    Margaret—DVD review

    I’m a latecomer to Kenneth Lonergan’s 'Margaret', having missed its brief appearance in theaters last year (after a five-to-six year delay) but it’s not too late for me to sing its praises. It has its flaws, but I defy you to find a more intelligent or impassioned American film this year.

What some audience members didn’t know is that the two-and-a-half hour epic wasn’t even close t...

    New York Asian Film Festival Reviews: 'Couples,' 'You Are The Apple Of My Eye,' and 'Honey Pupu'

    Based on the 2005 Japanese hit “A Stranger of Mine” (directed by Kenji Uchida), “Couples” is kind of like those Rube Goldberg sequences from Jean-Pierre Jeunet (or maybe the “how Cate Blanchett got injured” sequence from “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), except for an entire feature-length run...
