Triple 9 Review

Is there more going for heist flick Triple 9 than just its all star ensemble cast?

Insurgent Review

Insurgent is the obligatory sequel to Divergent, the latest series in a trend of young adult literature adaptations about dystopian societies... it ain't great but at least it ain't vampires.

TIFF 2014: A Little Chaos Review

A Little Chaos Gala/Closing Night Film Actor Alan Rickman’s stately period drama about the construction of the fountains and gardens at the Palace of Versailles couldn’t be more boring if it was actually about the intricacies of gardening.

TIFF 2013: Labor Day Review

Labor Day Special Presentation Director: Jason Reitman Since 2005’s Thank You for Smoking, Reitman has produced quirky, critical character studies, each slices of odd, complicated inhabitants in their near-highs and terrible lows.
