  • 'Saugatuck' spoof misses the mark

    Some lowbrow bathroom humor aside, "Saugatuck Cures" commences like a Lifetime movie in which Maggie (Judith Chapman), proprietor of a bed-and-breakfast in the titular bucolic Michigan town, presides over Thanksgiving dinner with dutiful gay son, Drew...
  • 'The Little Death' arouses interest as much as it disappoints

    'The Little Death' arouses interest as much as it disappoints
    No sexual fantasy goes unpunished — or at least greatly mismanaged — in the dark Aussie comedy "The Little Death." Writer-director-actor Josh Lawson takes on romantic ennui, fetishism, commitment phobia, couples counseling and more with...
  • Kate Winslet puts the bloom on otherwise staid 'Little Chaos'

    Kate Winslet puts the bloom on otherwise staid 'Little Chaos'
    The dependably compelling Kate Winslet tangles with vines and branches in "A Little Chaos," getting dirt on her 17th century frocks and under her nails. As the fictional landscape designer Sabine de Barra, hired to create the Rockwork Grove amphitheater...
  • 'Big Game' runs amok with outsized acting and eccentric cliffhangers

    'Big Game' runs amok with outsized acting and eccentric cliffhangers
    Renny Harlin lives! He didn't direct "Big Game" (and no, he's not dead), but the operatic nuttiness of Harlin's "Cliffhanger"-era action films is all over fellow Finn Jalmari Helander's B-movie throwback, a preposterous tale partnering an American...
  • Another 'Poldark,' and once again it's scything the fans

    Another 'Poldark,' and once again it's scything the fans
    When the epic romantic TV series "Poldark" premiered this spring in England, its success took even the producers by surprise. "The truth is you never know what's going to strike a chord with the viewing public," said executive producer Debbie Horsfield,...
  • 'Glass Chin' a neo-noir knockout with fight-ready cast

    'Glass Chin' a neo-noir knockout with fight-ready cast
    Punchy dialogue, sharply drawn characters and excellent performances fuel "Glass Chin," an intimate drama that's set in the boxing world but is about so much more. It's the kind of terrific little indie that not so long ago might have gone quite a few...
  • Crime drama '7 Minutes' packs a lot in, yet remains forgettable

    Crime drama '7 Minutes' packs a lot in, yet remains forgettable
    Although stylish and intriguingly told, the twisty crime drama "7 Minutes" never quite jumps out of the pack. Writer-director Jay Martin has a solid handle on his story and characters and is well supported by his cast. But in the end it's just another...
  • 'What Happened, Miss Simone?' resonates marvelously

     'What Happened, Miss Simone?' resonates marvelously
    "What Happened, Miss Simone?" answers its own question. This impressive and deeply felt documentary starts with that query, asked by Maya Angelou in a 1970 magazine article, and then intimately examines the tumultuous, at times tragic life of the...
  • Benicio Del Toro brings out the menace in 'Escobar'

    Benicio Del Toro brings out the menace in 'Escobar'
    The grandly titled "Escobar: Paradise Lost" follows the fall of not, as Milton would have it, Man, but of one particular (fictional) man, a naive Canadian surfer who finds himself enmeshed in the turbulent life of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. When...
  • 'Ted 2' is overstuffed and absurd but wickedly funny

    One joke in "Ted 2" potentially offends women, African Americans, couples struggling with infertility, sufferers of blood disorders, people who make medical shelving and the Kardashians. I laughed so hard at it that I waited for security to emerge from...
  • 'The Tribe' an unusual, powerful look at criminality

    'The Tribe' an unusual, powerful look at criminality
    There's nothing like "The Tribe," the astounding debut feature from Ukrainian writer-director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy about a mob operating within a crumbling school for the deaf. One need not read it as a metaphor for the director's homeland to...
