    REVIEW | Ready, Set, Heal: Clint Eastwood’s “Invictus”

    Clint Eastwood, who deals in a variety of subjects yet often gives his films recognizable authorial stamps, would seem to be prime evidence of the strength of auteurism: the dulcet-toned romantic weepie “The Bridges of Madison County” feels as much like an “Eastwood film” as the shadowy political thriller “Absolute Power” or the boxing tragedy “Million Dollar Baby.” Yet in recent years, Eastwood’s films have begun to seem like they were made by committee, even the almost parodically self-mythologizing “Gran Torino,” which appeared as though it might have plausibly been half-directed by a second unit crew (anytime the Hmong kids were onscreen ...

    REVIEW | Depth in Beauty: Tom Ford's "A Single Man"

    Directed by former Gucci creative director Tom Ford, "A Single Man" has a few of the qualities you’d expect from a fashion designer’s first film. On a superficial level, nearly every frame is highly styled to the point where it would not seem out of place printed in Italia...

    REVIEW | Gag Order: Cheryl Hines's "Serious Moonlight"

    The enormous groundswell of sympathy and support surrounding the release of Adrienne Shelly's "Waitress" blinded most viewers to its clear deficiencies. It might be unfair to conjecture what the critical reception for the good-natured if contrived and shabbily visualized romantic comedy might have been if actress-turned-director Shelly hadn't been horrifically murdered before its release, but it's safe to assume the processed-cheesy Keri Russell vehicle wouldn't have been the subject of quite as many think pieces.
