A true character study.

Two Lovers (2008) is the last Joaquin Phoenix movie unless he decides to return from his music career. With a rather simple and predictable plot you may wonder what the appeal is. The movie revolves around Leonard Kraditor (Phoenix), a suicidal case of a depressed man who was left by his fiancée and has now moved back in with his parents. He is ...

An extraordinarily simple and captivating film.

Wendy and Lucy (2008) is an extraordinarily simple and captivating film starring Michelle Williams and Lucy the dog. The rhythmic music and sounds combined with exquisite composition and hypnotic acting make the film a piece of moving art. Although simple, the film and its message are intense. Wendy (Michelle Williams) and Lucy allow us to peer ...

A very revealing and telling history.

Tyson (2008) is a very revealing and telling history of Mike Tyson's life told by Tyson himself. He talks through his childhood up to current day in a very open and candid manner. The filmmaker (James Toback) did a perfect job of letting him tell his story without coaxing or slanting the film to any side; it is simply Mike's story. Most of the ...

Mild comedy of manners.

Mrs. Whittaker (Kristin Scott Thomas) has a first name, but it's almost never spoken, since she is a prim and proper member of the British aristocracy. Her husband, Mr. Whittaker (a grizzled looking Colin Firth), survived the Great War but mentally checked out afterwards. Together the two of them and their two grown daughters, Hilda (Kimberley ...

Brilliantly directed.

"You decided you wanted her dead," Price (Tom Sizemore), an aging hit man, tells his new client, "that means she's already dead. She just doesn't know it yet." And a few days later, when Sarah (Sasha Alexander) hasn't been murdered yet, Price has to reassure his restless client that hiring him means the act is certain -- repeating a variation on ...

A minimalist tale told beautifully.

Writer and director Atom Egoyan is a cinematic master at creating incredibly sad and affecting tone poems to life's morose moments. He has never created anything as brilliant as his forever memorable THE SWEET HEREAFTER, a mesmerizing examination of the tragic results of a bus crash on the inhabitants of a small town. Egoyan's latest story is a ...

While it's never a bad movie, it is never a memorable one either.

"The poorest of places are where you'll find the diamond in the rough," the narrator tells us in RUDO Y CURSI. The film reunites Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN's two stars, Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal, who play brothers Beto and Tato. While there's nothing wrong with their latest collaboration, it never reaches the level of the consistently entertaining ...

Thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining.

EVERY LITTLE STEP, by directors Adam Del Deo and James D. Stern, is a documentary that follows people auditioning for a musical about people auditioning for a musical. So does the mere description of this documentary about people auditioning to get parts of the Broadway revival of "A Chorus Line" have your heading spinning? Well, don't worry. ...

Beautiful but rarely compelling.

Always beautiful but rarely compelling, PARIS 36 (FAUBOURG 36) is the second feature film by director Christophe Barratier. His first picture, THE CHORUS (LES CHORISTES), which was basically a subtitled MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS, was a huge hit in its native France and was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Song...

Finds its own, wonderful voice.

“She took a giant shit on my face.” Ah, we can all relate to that one. Not literally, of course, unless there happen to be some German scheisse video performers in the audience. This is a sentiment expressed by young Tom Hanssen after he breaks up with the maddening girl of his dreams. He serves as our surrogate in one of the funniest, most ...
