    'Anarchy Parlor' is a dreadful piece of torture porn
    Torture porn is back, and moviegoers will be all the worse for it thanks to the dreadful horror flick "Anarchy Parlor." This "Hostel"-style gorefest finds a sextet of randy, obnoxious young folks on vacation in Lithuania. (Is that a new hot spot or just...

     Lofty ambitions of 'Chagall-Malevich' mired in shallow, broad strokes
    Alexander Mitta's big and bold "Chagall-Malevich" is a fictionalized portrait of the creative and political lives of a pair of dramatically different artists, a colorful study in contrast with a prominent weakness for broad strokes. Set primarily...
  • Milan Kundera's 'Festival of Insignificance' on being and smallness

    Milan Kundera's 'Festival of Insignificance' on being and smallness
    There's not much to Milan Kundera's 10th novel, "The Festival of Insignificance" — his first work of fiction since 2000's "Ignorance" — but then that's part of the point. Revolving around five middle-aged friends living in Paris, it offers not...

  • 'The Face of an Angel' can't get its story straight

    'The Face of an Angel' can't get its story straight
    Like the floundering filmmaker at its center, "The Face of an Angel" never seems sure of what story it wants to tell. The result, from prolific director Michael Winterbottom ("A Mighty Heart," "The Trip") and writer Paul Viragh, proves a potentially...
  • Dry skies, higher ticket prices greet Grant Park Music Festival opening nighters

     Dry skies, higher ticket prices greet Grant Park Music Festival opening nighters
    The Grant Park Music Festival likes to kick off its concert seasons at Millennium Park on a rather populist note before getting down to more serious artistic business later in the summer. Such was the case Wednesday night at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion,...
  • 'The Yes Men Are Revolting' review: Climate change agitators

     'The Yes Men Are Revolting' review: Climate change agitators
    The further adventures of Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno — not that those are necessarily their real names — are chronicled in "The Yes Men Are Revolting." The prankster activists here turn their imaginative shaming schemes toward those...
  • 'The Wolfpack' review: Cloistered brothers find salvation in movies

    'The Wolfpack' review: Cloistered brothers find salvation in movies
    To say that the six brothers profiled in the documentary "The Wolfpack" have had an unusual upbringing is to put it mildly. They were raised in near-total isolation in a public housing complex on New York's Lower East Side, in a run-down apartment...
  • 'Hungry Hearts' shows love and obsession can be fatal mix

    'Hungry Hearts' shows love and obsession can be fatal mix
    A mother's fanatical concern for her baby's well being has potentially deadly consequences in "Hungry Hearts," a strange, harrowing, often remarkable story of love and obsession. Things start out lovely and romantically for New Yorker Jude (Adam Driver)...
  • 'Complications' goes crazy with doctor's metamorphosis

    'Complications' goes crazy with doctor's metamorphosis
    At its heart, USA's new series "Complications" is a simple and familiar story: White man goes wild. Whether it's Michael Douglas in "Falling Down," Bryan Cranston in "Breaking Bad" or Burt Reynolds and company in "Deliverance," the primitive power...
  • 'Astronaut Wives Club' lifts off with a light payload

    "The Astronaut Wives Club," which premieres Thursday on ABC, is a fact-based period soap opera that sets itself down at the intersection of "Mad Men" and "Desperate Housewives." And though there are no great claims to be made for it as drama or history,...
