    Indie heist comedy stakes out Chicago's Jewelers Row

     Stuntman Terry Leonard's career grew by leaps and bounds in Hollywood

    'The Human Centipede III' continues down depraved, rancid path
    If you hate movies, and you find sexual assault funny, "The Human Centipede III: Final Sequence" should meet your needs. It's a buffet of lower-the-bar depravity in Tom Six's third go-round with his digestion torture porn concept, which — if you...
  • 'Intrepido' takes muddled approach to day laborer's strife

    'Intrepido' takes muddled approach to day laborer's strife
    The opening scenes of "Intrepido: A Lonely Hero" promise a sharp parable about workaday economic realities. As an under-the-table "fill-in" Italian laborer, moving from one temporary assignment to another in Milan, actor Antonio Albanese is an appealing...

    'Quiet Riot' looks back at the hair, the noise and the band
    A long title for a movie devoted to a flash-in-the-pan rock band, "Quiet Riot: Well Now You're Here, There's No Way Back" is a documentary about the spandex-and-frizz group whose 1983 release "Metal Health" became the first heavy metal album to top the...

    'Chocolate City' aims for a 'Magic Mike' touch, turns soapy
    "Y'all seen 'Magic Mike,' right?" Michael Jai White rhetorically asks in the opening scene of "Chocolate City." "Now, we gonna add a little chocolate." One could take that as a dig at the lack of diversity in the 2012 Steven Soderbergh movie, but...
  • 'The Film Critic' takes its time getting to its rom-com heart

    'The Film Critic' takes its time getting to its rom-com heart
    Based simply on its playful, intriguing premise, the Argentine import "The Film Critic" should have been a better movie. But like so many of the flicks that the film's gloomy title character seems to review, this kind of anti-romantic comedy proves a...
  • 'Aloft' can't land a solid story, with crucial pieces missing

    "Aloft" sets up a compelling mystery — how could a loving mother abandon her son? — and then, frustratingly, refuses to solve it. The first English-language film from Peruvian director Claudia Llosa follows a falconer (Cillian Murphy) as...
  • 'When Marnie Was There' deftly creates a magical friendship

    "When Marnie Was There," the delicate, evocative new Japanese animated film from Studio Ghibli, does not fall neatly into any conventional narrative category. But that doesn't get in the way of it being visually spectacular. As directed by Hiromasa...
  • Jacques Audiard finds romance pulsing in steely 'Dheepan'

    It's been three years since I talked to French director Jacques Audiard at the Festival de Cannes for his "Rust and Bone," six since I interviewed him about his exceptional, Grand Prize-winning "Un Proph├Ęte." When I complimented him on how much his...
