  • 'Unfriended' tracks lethal cyberstalker

    For a solid half-hour, the real-time horror film "Unfriended" feels breathlessly new as a storytelling portal, fixed as it is on the active computer screen of teenager Blaire (Shelley Hennig) as she webchats and flirts with boyfriend Mitch (Moses Storm),...

    'Futuro Beach' washes up as soft-core, soulless gay fiction
    "Futuro Beach" begins with a German tourist drowning by Brazil's Praia do Futuro. Lifeguard Donato (Wagner Moura) breaks the bad news to the deceased's travel companion, Konrad (Clemens Schick), and propositions him for an inopportune roadside hookup....
  • '1915' a creative take on Armenian genocide

    '1915' a creative take on Armenian genocide
    Just this week, Turkey recalled its ambassador to the Vatican after Pope Francis remarked on the Ottoman Turks' genocide of Armenians 100 years ago. As the historical debate rages on, artistic representations of the event have lagged. An IMDb keyword...
  • 'The Human Experiment' misses a few crucial steps

    'The Human Experiment' misses a few crucial steps
    Narrated by Sean Penn, the documentary "The Human Experiment" alleges a correlation between four decades of increased chemical use in the United States and health issues such as cancer, miscarriage, autism and birth defects. The film also contends...

    'Alex of Venice' a mash note to L.A. neighborhood
    Chris Messina's "Alex of Venice" is as much a love letter to the Los Angeles neighborhood as it is a well-observed drama. Capturing a family in transition, the actor's modestly scaled behind-the-camera debut features subtle work by Mary Elizabeth...

    Neil Diamond made the little things pay off
    Neil Diamond made small gestures register maximum effect Tuesday at a packed United Center. He cocked his head while reflecting, placed his left hand over his heart to express gratitude, shifted his shoulders before taking deep breaths and gently waved to...
  • Review: 'Revenge of the Mekons'

    Review: 'Revenge of the Mekons'
    An extremely tasty slice of fanboydom, Joe Angio's music documentary "Revenge of the Mekons" presents the amoeba-like wonder of the title band (the Mekons, that is, not revenge) as a creative anomaly in the music business. Born among a gaggle of art...
  • Movie review: 'Ex Machina' is a wonderful creation

    Thoughtful science fiction is as rare in film these days as black-and-white or a double feature, something parents fascinate their children with as exotica from a different moviegoing time. First-time director Alex Garland brilliantly brings the past...
