    TORONTO REVIEW | "Paradise Lost 3" is Unfinished, But Still Has Much To Say

    Last month's sudden release of the "West Memphis 3" after nearly 20 years of incarceration was a dramatic end to a case that's still riddled with questions. The 1994 convictions of Damien Echols (who was sentenced to death), Jesse Misskelley and Jason Baldwin (both sentenced to life) were overturned...

    TORONTO REVIEW | "Friends With Kids" is a Successful Sitcom

    Progressive families have been fertile ground for American sitcoms like "Will & Grace" and "Modern Family." That Jennifer Westfeldt's "Friends with Kids" successfully translates the appeal into feature-length format doesn't exactly make it a great movie, but it's a genuinely entertaining look at you...

    TORONTO REVIEW | Horror-Comedy "You're Next" Delivers Derivative, Gory Fun

    "You're Next" doesn't break new ground in the horror genre, but it sticks to rules that work. Director Adam Wingard ("A Horrible Way to Die") and screenwriter Simon Barrett ("Dead Birds") demonstrate a firm grasp on their material, delivering a tightly-wound survival story replete with disarming hum...

    TORONTO REVIEW | Whit Stillman Returns At Last With Amusing But Tame "Damsels in Distress"

    Writer-director Whit Stillman's insightful 1990 debut, "Metropolitan," was a smartly envisioned fantasy about the end of the debutante era. "Damsels in Distress," his first feature in over a dozen years, also works as a fantasy, but a far less purposeful one. Stillman's lengthy filmmaking absence pu...

    TORONTO REVIEW | Post-"Humpday" Success, "Your Sister's Sister" Finds Lynn Shelton In Quieter Turf

    Two years ago, Lynn Shelton's "Humpday" made waves for its impressive combination of improvised dialogue and keen insight into human relationships, a tricky balance achieved while also seamlessly drifting between comedy and drama. Her follow-up doesn't expand her range but applies it differently. "Y...

    TORONTO REVIEW | Todd Solondz Takes A Fresh Path To More of the Same With Kafkaesque "Dark Horse"

    The universe of damaged characters Todd Solondz has created in his movies is generally considered a cruel, angry place, even by his biggest fans. His latest feature, "Dark Horse," plays by those same rules and thus won't convert any committed Solondz haters. At the same time, it carves a fresh path that deviates from existing patterns in his work with a more accessible narrative. In "Dark Horse," Solondz displays an uncharacteristic warmth, if not outright optimism about the human condition. Notwithstanding the meandering script and occasionally blocky staging, Solondz has delivered a zanier take on his usual downbeat routine, but in this cas...
