  • Toronto Film Review: 'The New Girlfriend'

    Review: 'Eliot Ness: The Rise and Fall of an American Hero' by Douglas Perry

    Critic's Notebook: Movie violence must not be stopped
    I abhor violence. As a rookie police reporter years ago I saw the damage guns, knives, broken bottles, metal pipes, hands — humans — can inflict. From the terrifyingly premeditated to the unfortunately accidental, those images still have the...
