    'The Passionate Thief' as laugh-out-loud funny now as in 1960

  • 'Kill Me Three Times' a case of style over substance

     'Kill Me Three Times' a case of style over substance
    The neo-noir crime comedy "Kill Me Three Times" works overtime to seem unique and clever. The result, however, is a derivative, gimmicky, at times dizzying puzzle that fails to engage. The film, divided into three overlapping, nonlinear segments,...
  • Review: 'The Wrecking Crew'

    To Beach Boys guru Brian Wilson, "they were the ones with all the spirit and all the know-how." To Nancy Sinatra, they were "unsung heroes," to Herb Alpert, "an established groove machine." And to celebrated songwriter Jimmy Webb, they were simply...

  • Sci-fi 'Ex Machina' feels modern, futuristic and classical at once

    Sci-fi 'Ex Machina' feels modern, futuristic and classical at once
    Three characters trapped in a house debating human consciousness may not sound like the most exciting backbone for a movie. Yet in "Ex Machina," the directing debut for writer Alex Garland, that dry-sounding concept becomes the basis for a sci-fi thriller...
  • 'Grace of Monaco' skipping U.S. theaters, headed to Lifetime

    "Grace of Monaco," the 2014 Cannes Film Festival opener and one-time Oscar hopeful starring Nicole Kidman, is now a Lifetime movie. Originally intended for theatrical release, the film is set to make its U.S. premiere on the cable network May 25,...
  • UCLA film series touts William Wellman, 'Hollywood Rebel'

    UCLA film series touts William Wellman, 'Hollywood Rebel'
    In the lexicon of classic Hollywood, the letter W looms especially large. But of all the directors in that distinguished group, including Raoul Walsh, Billy Wilder, Orson Welles and William Wyler, no one is harder to define than William Wellman, a...
  • In 'True Story,' a writer and a killer weave an ambiguous web

    In 'True Story,' a writer and a killer weave an ambiguous web
    Nonfiction stories on screen, long a little traction-challenged, have become especially slippery of late. Hit television reality franchises such as "The Bachelor" and "Real Housewives" present basic human emotions as a form of sports. Sports figures are...
