    Snitch (***)

    Snitch is one of those films that you go in expecting one thing and get those judgments and preconceived notions blown to bits by a sharp screenplay, fantastic acting, and confident direction. A fascinating character study wrapped in the thin shroud of an action thriller, Snitch, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a powerful statement...

    Weekend Openings: 2/22/2013

    As Awards Season draws to a close this weekend, new releases feebly hoping for some viewership are kept to a conservative minimum.  With no shortage of derivative action and horror pictures monopolizing theaters in the year’s early months, Dwayne Johnson (in his first of many) joins they fray with Snitch along with...

    Two Lead Contenders on Lionsgate Awards Plate

    When the Lionsgate Awards site went LIVE today and listed their slate of contenders involving Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Fisher Stevens’ Stand Up Guys, Gary Ross’ The Hunger Games, Nicholas Jarecki’s Arbitrage, and J.A. Bayona’s The Impossible, I started to analyze how this year could pan out for...

    Cloud Atlas (***½) Simply put, Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer’s Cloud Atlas is an allegory about love, freedom, and the connectivity of the human spirit throughout all of time, space, and everything in between. But there is nothing simple about this film – this challengingly ambitious and wildly intrepid film –...

    Arbitrage (***½)

    Arbitrage is a film that might seem like little more than a energetic, well acted film about the financial crisis, but underneath the surface is a hauntingly urgent requiem on the American Dream and the moral fabric of the country. Using a bevy of fantastic performances and a sharp script, the film is...

    TIFF: Pleasant “Tiki,” Sarandon steals “Company,” and Watts isn’t enough for “Impossible”

    KON TIKI (***)…When I was 12 my grandparents gave me the book about Thor Heyerdahl, a 20th century photographer and ethnographer who in 1947 set out on an extraordinary adventure that everyone told him was impossible. Heyerdahl set out on the 8,000 mile voyage across the Pacific Ocean on a raft built...

    Oscar Circuit: Resistance is Futile

    As Telluride and Venice ended and we sit in the heat that is the Toronto Film Festival, I’m updating Oscar Predictions slowly but surely.  Screenings are happening daily and the race could change in a matter of seconds.  My solution is to update one category per day for the next 20 days....

    Watch the Trailer for Robert Redford’s ‘The Company You Keep’

    As an actor, Robert Redford has been a part of a few of my favorite films of all time. From Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), to The Sting (1973), to All the President’s Men (1976), his resume is pretty outstanding. As a director, however, the results have been a little...

    Robot & Frank (***)

    Though you can pretty much tell exactly where the film is going from early on in the proceedings, ‘Robot & Frank’ still manages to come off as a relatively clever and very enjoyable sci-fi dramedy. The biggest asset that this flick has going for it is the lead performance of Frank Langella,...

    Los Angeles Film Festival Diaries: Day Seven

    Day Seven of the Los Angeles Film Festival™ offered a little something extra aside from my usual screening adventures. For the first time since Clayton, Anna, and Robert all had lunch together earlier this year before the commencing of the 84th Annual Academy Awards, two Award Circuit staff members were able to...

    Cloud Atlas will be unleashed on audiences this coming December!

    I have absolutely no clue what to expect with the film ‘Cloud Atlas’, a joint venture between the Wachowskis (Lana and Andy…formerly Larry and Andy) and Tom Tykwer. Based on the highly praised novel by David Mitchell, it’s a layered and bizarre sounding work that could either go horribly wrong or dazzlingly...

    Jeff, Who Lives at Home (***½)

    I’ve always enjoyed the work of pseudo-cult filmmakers Jay and Mark Duplass. From ‘The Puffy Chair’ to ‘Baghead’ to ‘Cyrus’, they’ve gone from pioneers of the Mumblecore movement to a talented duo that could very well be headed towards major mainstream success in the somewhat near future. With ‘Jeff, Who Lives at...
