  • 'Affluenza' tries for 'Great Gatsby,' comes up shortchanged

     'Affluenza' tries for 'Great Gatsby,' comes up shortchanged
    It might be true that the very rich, as F. Scott Fitzgerald put it, "are different from you and me," but movies about their profligate kids tend toward dime-a-dozen sameness. "Affluenza," director Kevin Asch's look at excess in Great Neck, N.Y., abounds...
  • Liev Schreiber on 'Ray Donovan' Cast: 'We Came Up As Clean-Up Guys Instead of Leading Men'

    Time Warner Cable and Showtime pulled out all the stops at Wednesday's spirited fete for the season two premiere of the gritty drama "Ray Donovan," which nabbed an Emmy nomination in the best supporting actor category for Jon Voight, who plays Mickey...
  • Karlovy Vary Film Review: 'Bjork: Biophilia Live'

    Since Bjork, that eternally eccentric spirit animal of contemporary pop, largely rejected screen acting following an untoppable turn in Lars von Trier's "Dancer in the Dark," a concert film is the closest thing to a starring vehicle that her fans can...
  • Review: Well-told 'Aftermath' unfolds as yet another apocalypse

     Review: Well-told 'Aftermath' unfolds as yet another apocalypse
    At the start of "Aftermath," a series of nuclear explosions hits across the globe and once again, moviegoers, it's the end of the world as we know it. Though they won't win any prizes for originality, writer Christian McDonald and director Peter...
  • Dreary 'Among Ravens' has little to crow about

    Dreary 'Among Ravens' has little to crow about
    Here's one: An arrogant novelist, a failed marriage and a childlike nature photographer walk into a lakehouse ... and so do a narrating moppet, a pot-smoking life coach and his free-spirited girlfriend. But there are no punch lines to "Among Ravens,"...
  • 'Manhattan,' 'Annie Hall' double bill honors Gordon Willis

     'Manhattan,' 'Annie Hall' double bill honors Gordon Willis
    A new Woody Allen film hits the screen just about once a year. But if like the super-intelligent aliens in 1980's "Stardust Memories" you prefer the early, funny ones, the American Cinematheque at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica features a double bill...
  • Let's think about 'The Purge: Anarchy'

    Let's think about 'The Purge: Anarchy'
    *1/2 (out of four) Last year’s surprise hit “The Purge” and the new “The Purge: Anarchy,” in which crime (including murder) is legal for 12 hours each year, do nothing to address the questions they inspire. How many people...
  • Braff blows it with 'Wish I Was Here'

    Braff blows it with 'Wish I Was Here'
    * (out of four) After waiting 10 years to make his follow-up to “Garden State,” Zach Braff probably could have kept his sophomore writing-directing effort, “Wish I Was Here,” free of gags about Sinead O’Connor, Ani DiFranco,...
  • 'Sex Tape' is actually not terrible

    'Sex Tape' is actually not terrible
    **1/2 (out of four) Redemption won’t come easily after you write something as ghastly as “The Back-Up Plan.” (Don’t remember that one? It starred Jennifer Lopez and isn’t “Out of Sight.” Enough said.)...
  • Concert review: Andrea Marcovicci at Davenport's

    Concert review: Andrea Marcovicci at Davenport's
    The subject of travel must mean a great deal to Andrea Marcovicci, for she sings and speaks of it quite movingly in her show "No Strings." Launching her annual residency at Davenport's on Wednesday evening, Marcovicci offered a whirlwind tour of the...
  • 'Boyhood' is only impressive in theory

    'Boyhood' is only impressive in theory
    **1/2 (out of four) Movies are so much more than a concept. “Gravity” was an amazing onscreen achievement, but the script was lousy. It’s not a great movie—what’s impressive is the fact that Alfonso Cuaron pulled it off. To...
