    'Groundhog Day': Forecast for Bill Murray vehicle is cool and classic

    Andy Summers' 'Losing You' gets lost in bitterness

    Songs and love, served with 'Cupcakes'
    Romantic woes give way to guilty-pleasure song stylings in "Cupcakes," Eytan Fox's affectionate sendup of the Eurovision contest and better living through kitsch. Popping with crayon-bright hues and bubbly diversity, the gentle silliness unfolds in...

    Scenic artist hit a masterwork mother lode with 'Woman in Gold'
    What do you do after you painstakingly re-create one of the most famous paintings on Earth? Hide it from sight, of course. This likely will be the fate of a reproduction of Gustav Klimt's 1907 masterpiece, "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I," painted by a...
  • 'Sagrada' visits Gaudí's cathedral, built with faith

    'Sagrada' visits Gaudí's cathedral, built with faith

  • 'Ned Rifle' a high mark in Hal Hartley's bizarre world

     'Ned Rifle' a high mark in Hal Hartley's bizarre world
    If you're familiar at all with indie filmmaker Hal Hartley's work, you know there's a surreal quality to it. Slightly mannered performances, with a skewed theological and sexual didactic underpin his morality plays. Good and evil, God and the devil in a...
  • Quirky 'Cut Bank' spins into a dark spiral toward nothing

    Quirky 'Cut Bank' spins into a dark spiral toward nothing
    Aiming somewhere between Coen brothers territory and "Twin Peaks" and landing awkwardly in the realm of self-conscious neo-noir, "Cut Bank" is filled with small-town quirkiness and propelled by a rising body count. At the purported center of the...
  • 'White God' gives the child-dog fable a thrilling twist

     'White God' gives the child-dog fable a thrilling twist
    A small, touching fable about a girl and her dog becomes an adrenaline-pumping thriller about animals against humans in Hungarian filmmaker Kornél Mundruczó's exhilarating radicalization allegory "White God." By turns Dickensian, Marxist and dystopian,...
  • Hou Hsiao-hsien retrospective at Gene Siskel Film Center

    Hou Hsiao-hsien retrospective at Gene Siskel Film Center
