  • Review: 'Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem'

    Review: 'Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem'
    The courtroom drama is among the cinema's most irresistible genres, where rigid formula (the expected) meets the blurted-out confession or the pent-up and finally detonated hidden truth (the unexpected). In the week's best new film, a highly compressed,...
  • Review: 'Ballet 422'

    Review: 'Ballet 422'
    "Ballet 422" is a documentary as focused and no-frills as its title would indicate. An intimate and unusual behind-the-scenes look at the creation of a ballet, it may sound rarefied but has enough moments of truth and beauty to engage general audiences....

    Weekend preview: Coffee walk, beer talk
    This is a great weekend for a walk, because no matter what the weather, it's not snowing. So when the FAT Village Art Walk rolls around on Saturday night, we’ll widen its sphere of influence with a stroll over to Argyle Coffee Roasters, which has...
  • Review: 'Actress'

    Review: 'Actress'
    Robert Greene's extraordinary collaboration with actress Brandy Burre is a playful, provocative examination of self-performance. It's an overused line in celebrity journalism that the most challenging role any actor faces in their career is that of him-...
  • Review: 'A La Mala'

    Review: 'A La Mala'
    Maria Laura, the heroine of "A La Mala," is a slinky bombshell of an actress who uses her talents to flirt with other women's beaus to test their loyalty. The acting roles aren't there, but there is no shortage of women who need a professional breaker-...
  • Review: 'Wild Tales'

    Review: 'Wild Tales'
    Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but Argentine writer-director Damian Szifron allows it to sit until it congeals in the dreary six-part anthology "Wild Tales." Each segment focuses on an act of vengeance, usually motivated by class or economic...
  • Review: 'Focus'

    Review: 'Focus'
    In August 2016, Will Smith and Margot Robbie will lead the ensemble of the DC Comics adaptation "Suicide Squad," a presumptive superantihero franchise in the making. Meantime, consider the new film "Focus" as a sort of Intro-to-Chemistry test for the same...
  • Review: 'The Lazarus Effect'

    Review: 'The Lazarus Effect'
    "The Lazarus Effect" is what happens when hip, smart actors commit themselves — body and soul — to a horror movie. Mark Duplass, a mainstay of indie cinema's microbudget "mumblecore" movement, and recent convert Olivia Wilde ably play a...
  • Eddie Redmayne's post-Oscar project: 'Thomas the Tank Engine' movie

    Eddie Redmayne's post-Oscar project: 'Thomas the Tank Engine' movie
    Where does an actor go next after winning an Oscar and playing an intergalactic tyrant in a studio tent-pole, all in the span of a few weeks? For "Theory of Everything" and "Jupiter Ascending" star Eddie Redmayne, the answer is straight to DVD, as a...

  • 'Focus' is 20 times hotter, 200 times smarter than 'Fifty Shades'

    'Focus' is 20 times hotter, 200 times smarter than 'Fifty Shades'
    Up to this point, both of Margot Robbie's major big-screen roles have featured what we'll call the OMarGot moment, when a main male character sees her and freaks out. In "About Time," Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) might've swallowed his own throat in...
