  • Movie review: �Aloft� sinks like a stone

  • Movie review: 'The Farewell Party' lets the Israeli elderly make their exit in style

    Steve Allen's famous equation, "Tragedy plus time equals comedy" is seriously stretched in "The Farewell Party," a darker-than-dark Israeli comedy about old people seeking "death with dignity." The deaths are sad, gripping affairs, the terminally ill and...
  • Movie review: 'Chocolate City' is no 'Magic Mike'

    'Tomorrowland' review: Clooney imagineers hope
    By now you probably heard that the series finale of "Mad Men" ended with adman Don Draper dressed in loose-fitting whites, chanting "om" on the lawn of a commune in California, perched at the edge of the Pacific, the 1960s having slid into the 1970s....

    'Slow West,' with Michael Fassbender, a surprisingly sly western
    A western fable with an often dreamlike vibe, "Slow West" proves to be a surprisingly sly tale of passion, greed and survival. John Maclean, a former member of cult Scottish musical group the Beta Band, makes an impressive feature writing and...
