  • Movie review: Nobody plays Pacino like Pacino in 'Danny Collins'

    "Danny Collins" may be the closest Al Pacino ever gets to playing Pacino the Legend on the big screen. Perma-tanned under that vast black mane and Mephistophelian goatee, blinged in the Jersey Italian style, effortlessly larger than life and bowl-you-...
  • TV review: HBO's 'Going Clear' details Scientology's theater of the surreal

    Scientology won't be destroyed when "Going Clear," filmmaker Alex Gibney's documentary, airs on Sunday. Unlike another recent HBO documentary project, "The Jinx," "Going Clear" probably won't lead to the high-profile arrest of an eccentric millionaire....
  • Patience with free-form 'Marfa Girl' pays off

    Patience with free-form 'Marfa Girl' pays off
    Funny thing about "Marfa Girl," the 2012 ensemble drama from idiosyncratic writer-director Larry Clark ("Kids," "Bully"): For all its meanderings and indulgences — verbal and visual — this free-form snapshot of a circle of townsfolk in tiny...
  • Dining out: Sooner the better for changes underway at Hemingway's

    Dining out: Sooner the better for changes underway at Hemingway's
    Ouch. Have you ever headed for a restaurant wanting to love the place even though you've heard wildly mixed opinions from your friends and your past meals there have been, well, up and down? That was my mindset on a recent winter night on the way to...
  • 'Metalhead' just scratches the surface of comfort and catharsis

    'Metalhead' just scratches the surface of comfort and catharsis
    In bleak 1980s rural Svarthamar, Iceland, where the townsfolk seem perpetually expressionless, a tractor accident claims the life of the young Baldur (Oskar Logi Agustsson) and sucks the life out of his nuclear family. His 12-year-old sister, Hera...
  • 'Nightlight' does little to illuminate found-footage genre

    Centered on youngsters tempting fate in reputedly haunted woods, "Nightlight" has all the trappings of your garden-variety found-footage horror flick: murky, shaky cinema verité that disorients and leaves much to your imagination. But the film's POV shots...
  • '3 Holes and a Smoking Gun' is awkward mix of pulp and satire

    '3 Holes and a Smoking Gun' is awkward mix of pulp and satire
    Awkwardly aiming for a tone landing somewhere between vintage pulp fiction and self-reverential satire, the stagy low-budget crime thriller "3 Holes and a Smoking Gun" is constructed around the admittedly alluring premise of a sought-after movie script...
  • Any way you cut it, 'The Barber' is dumb

    Any way you cut it, 'The Barber' is dumb
    "The Barber" is one of those did-he-or-didn't-he? thrillers that more readily asks another question, the answer to which is: Yes, they did … make a seriously dumb movie. The premise is that Scott Glenn's shuffling, white-haired, small-town barber...
  • Neo-noir 'Man From Reno' explores identity

    Neo-noir 'Man From Reno' explores identity
    The elegant, tantalizing Japanese American neo-noir "Man From Reno," set in the Bay Area and directed with sincere genre artistry by Dave Boyle, threads together a pair of narrative strands appealing to any mystery buff: the percolating thrill of...
  • 'Jauja' a confounding tale of conquest, survival in Argentina

     'Jauja' a confounding tale of conquest, survival in Argentina
    Lisandro Alonso's textured art western "Jauja" won't necessarily educate you about Argentina's 19th century war of expansion against Patagonia's indigenous peoples. But its austere long takes and temporal jags just might lull you into a brainy trance...
  • Innocent 'Little Feet' is out of touch

    Innocent 'Little Feet' is out of touch
    Once regarded as a 1990s indie vanguard, Alexandre Rockwell hasn't fulfilled that promise in the ensuing two decades as have many of his peers, such as Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and Allison Anders, with whom he codirected the 1995 omnibus...
