    The Change-Up

    No one wants to be the one to raise his hand and be so uncool as to say “I’m offended,” but I’m willing to take that risk after seeing The Change-Up. I’ve tried to make my peace with what I call The New Vulgarity, as Hollywood has jumped on the R-rated comedy ...

    REVIEW | Raúl Ruiz's "Mysteries of Lisbon" Has Plenty of Intrigue -- But Enough for 4 1/2 Hours?

    Almost everything written about Chliean-born director Raúl Ruiz discusses the prolific nature of his career -- at last count, over 100 features in addition to scholarly texts and other projects -- and how it's almost impossible to absorb it all. Ruiz's transnational filmography is all over the place...

    REVIEW | "Bellflower" Provides Phenomenal Showcase for Newcomer Evan Glodell

    Fandom is an ailment for the two young leads in "Bellflower," the directorial debut of Evan Glodell.

    Critic's Notebook | There Are Three Versions of "The Interrupters," But Only One Movie. Here's Why.

    When Steven James first premiered "The Interrupters," his compelling look at activists working to prevent Chicago street violence, the initial reaction at the Sundance Film Festival was uniformly positive. The indomitable buzz machine reported that the "Hoop Dreams" co-director had made another galvanizing portrait of inner city struggles, this one based on a New York Times Magazine article by Alex Kotlowitz. Following the travails of CeaseFire Interrupters, a group predominantly composed of former gang members talking sense to their hotheaded brethren, "The Interrupters" explored a world of dangerous conflict and heroic redemption by combini...
