    Sundance Review: Jim Mickle's Slow-Burn 'We Are What We Are' Remake Is Quiet, Gross and Better Than the Original

    Writer-director Jim Mickle has steadily established himself as a horror filmmaker with interests that treat the art of shock value with rare maturity.

    Sundance Review: 'Don Jon's Addiction' Is A Charming & Impressive Directorial Debut From Joseph Gordon-Levitt

    Jon Martello is the quintessential modern-day lothario. He and his friends objectify women, rate them on a scale of one to ten and cruise clubs for chicks that they can bed and discard.

    Sundance Review: Alicia Keys-Scored 'Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete' Loses Its Way

    Director George Tillman Jr.'s filmography includes star-studded studio projects like "Men of Honor" and "Notorious," but you wouldn't guess it from the ultra-sincere "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete," an earnest tale of two lower class kids spending the summer on their own in the Brooklyn p...
