The Humbling Review

Boasting a script from Buck Henry and the best work Barry Levinson and Al Pacino have done in years, The Humbling might be the more rewarding (and somewhat more difficult) version of Birdman.

TIFF 2014: The Humbling Review

The Humbling Special Presentations These days, the news that a bunch of grizzled old Hollywood types have gotten together to make a film about aging should be received with a mixture of abject terror and disgust. The world needs another Bucket List or Last Vegas about as much as it needs nuclear warfare. Thankfully, the […]

Frances Ha Review

CONTEST: Win Lola Versus on Blu-ray

We have not one, but two Lola Versus Blu-rays to give away. Greta Gerwig sparkles in this offbeat romantic comedy about looking for answers - and finding yourself - in a complicated world. When 29-year-old Lola (Gerwig) is dumped by her fiancé Luke (future Robocop Joel Kinnaman) just three weeks before the wedding, she embarks on an emotional, year-long adventure of self-discovery filled with love, loss, hilarity and heartache. Guided (and often misguided) y the well-meaning advice of her close friends and eccentric parents, Lola's chaotic journey en route to the big 3-0 proves that a single tumultuous year can yield the lessons of a lifetime.

To Rome With Love Review

While not one of the more disposable films in the Woody Allen cannon, the filmmaker's latest To Rome With Love only manages to be a mildly amusing mishmash of four separate, mediocre, half-baked stories instead of just one really good one.

Lola Versus Review

Thanks to the natural charm and grace of leading lady Greta Gerwig, Lola Versus fares better than a lot of similarly unrelatable NYC hipster fare.
