    L.A. Ballet rounds out Tchaikovsky trilogy with 'The Sleeping Beauty'
    With the addition of "The Sleeping Beauty" to its repertory, the Los Angeles Ballet rounds out its Tchaikovsky trilogy, having launched the company with "The Nutcracker" in 2006 and staged "Swan Lake in 2011." Taking on these three touchstones of...
  • 'The Salvation' a western that gets lost in the genre

    The simplicity of an old-school western with one good loner facing down a relentless outlaw can fool you into thinking these films are easy to make. From classics such as "High Noon" and "Shane" to Sergio Leone's bloody spaghetti westerns, they tend to be...
  • 'My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn' reveals little

    'My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn' reveals little
    The documentary "My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn" tracks the making of Danish filmmaker Refn's 2013 film "Only God Forgives" starring Ryan Gosling. From the six-month shoot in Bangkok to the premiere of "Only God Forgives" at the Cannes Film...
  • Fudged or not, 'Kung Fu Elliot' is amusing take on a big dream

    Fudged or not, 'Kung Fu Elliot' is amusing take on a big dream
    The already murky parameters of contemporary reality filmmaking are further fudged in "Kung Fu Elliot," an entertaining documentary following two years in the life of an idealistic amateur filmmaker intent on becoming Canada's first action hero. With...
  • 'Maps to the Stars' a nightmarish tour of Hollywood narcissism

    In its own disturbing, slithery way, the train-wreck watchable melodrama "Maps to the Stars" is as much a horror show as any that the film's director, David Cronenberg, has helmed over his long and provocative career. This is due, in no small part, to...
  • Islamic State and its increasingly sophisticated cinema of terror

    Islamic State and its increasingly sophisticated cinema of terror
    The cinematography is as crisp and chilling as a horror movie. Men in orange jumpsuits kneel on a beach beneath a sky of broken clouds. Executioners hover over them, dressed in black, knives aglint. A masked militant reads the death sentence. The camera...
  • ''71' delivers 100% tension amid 'the Troubles' in Ireland

     ''71' delivers 100% tension amid 'the Troubles' in Ireland
    An incendiary film that takes off like a house afire, "'71" is a tense thriller from Britain that so adroitly joins physical intensity, emotional authenticity and political acuity that you may find yourself forgetting to take a breath. Nominated for...
  • The ethnic wall is steep in the engaging but uneven 'Anita Ho'

    The ethnic wall is steep in the engaging but uneven 'Anita Ho'
    The engaging if uneven "Anita Ho" is a kind of Asian American "Meet the Parents" — call it "Guess Who's Coming to Dim Sum" — based on "some true events" of the comedy's married costars and cowriters, Steve Myung and Lina So Myung. Although the...
  • Ideas are scarce in 'Ana Maria in Novela Land'

    Ideas are scarce in 'Ana Maria in Novela Land'
    There's nothing particularly transporting about "Ana Maria in Novela Land," a slight, one-gag comedy about a telenovela-obsessed young woman who magically trades places with the show's femme fatale star. Essentially a Spanish-accented fusion of "Trading...
  • 'Boy Meets Girl' a timeless yet timely tale of love, friendship

    'Boy Meets Girl' a timeless yet timely tale of love, friendship
    The oft-used expression "love is love" is given a thorough and quite beautiful workout by writer-director Eric Schaeffer in the captivating "Boy Meets Girl." The profoundly sensitive, often wryly funny look at friendship, romance, sexual attraction and...
  • 'Lazarus Effect' breathes some life into medical thriller

    'Lazarus Effect' breathes some life into medical thriller
    If "Flatliners" had been directed by John Carpenter (in his budget-conscious mode), it may have felt something like "The Lazarus Effect," a tense, efficient medical thriller best enjoyed sans microscope. This limited-location shocker comes from the...
