    It's not a movie about hats, but writer-director Noah Baumbach's latest comedy, "While We're Young," occasionally becomes one anyway. The sight of compact, hunchy Ben Stiller and hipster beanpole Adam Driver in the same frame, wearing retro-hip fedoras,...

    Hou Hsiao-hsien retrospective at Gene Siskel Film Center

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

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