  • 'Chic!' takes on Paris' fashion world with heart, humor and style

    Like a haute couture garment, "Chic!" is a finely crafted piece of work, a comedic romantic drama set within a frothy and sublimely funny caricature of the Parisian fashion world. Written and directed by Jérôme Cornuau, the film stars the lovely,...

    'Eastern Boys' an unruly yet pointed hustle
    Bold and unsettling, "Eastern Boys" is a long, strange trip of a film that touches on myriad social, economic and sexual themes. Writer-director-editor Robin Campillo has crafted an unruly yet pointed drama that should intrigue patient viewers. The...

    Review: 'About Elly'
    Filmed prior to his Oscar-winning drama "A Separation," writer-director Asghar Farhadi's "About Elly" (2009) only recently untangled its foreign-rights distribution issues, and opens Friday at the Music Box. It's been available on DVD overseas for years....
  • In penetrating 'Far From Men,' Camus meets the western

    In penetrating 'Far From Men,' Camus meets the western
    The prospect of Viggo Mortensen speaking fluent French (and some Arabic) in a foreign-language film based on a short story by Albert Camus reset as a classic western might not sound like a can't-miss proposition. But "Far From Men," which takes place...
  • 'Maya the Bee Movie': Little buzz for kids or grown-ups

    'Maya the Bee Movie': Little buzz for kids or grown-ups
    "Maya the Bee Movie," an Australian-German animated children's film directed by Alexs Stadermann, is talky, relentlessly affirming and as predictable as a paint-by-number. In Waldemar Bonsels' 1922 children's book "The Adventures of Maya the Bee," the...
  • 'Gardeners of Eden' shines light on elephant poaching

    'Gardeners of Eden' shines light on elephant poaching

    In 'About Elly,' genial fibs grow to an intense reality
    It's an irony of the international film scene that arguably the greatest contemporary creator of adult psychological dramas in the classic Hollywood mold comes from a country that views America's movie business and everything associated with it as the...
  • 'Maggie' has the zombie look but a deadly slow pace

    'Maggie' has the zombie look but a deadly slow pace
    There is a provocative idea worth chewing on tucked inside the melodramatic zombie-horror of "Maggie" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin. In this particular post-apocalyptic vision, a plague is making oh-so-slow work of the world...
  • 'Saint Laurent's' stylish biopic can't tie threads together

    There's good cause to shake the biopic form out of its exhaustively linear, birth-to-death rut, and Bertrand Bonello's "Saint Laurent" — starring Gaspard Ulliel as the storied French designer — valiantly tries. It's a coolly rendered, time-...
  • Graphic 'Hyena' is an old-school gangster tale

    Graphic 'Hyena' is an old-school gangster tale
    "Hyena" feels like a throwback to the tough-as-nails British gangster flicks of the 1970s: The unrepentant crooked cop at the film's center seems redeemable only relative to the merciless criminals who cross him and the weaselly colleagues who frame him....
