Tone-deaf and cringe-worthy, this unfunny comedy might have been wrenching if cast as a drama.
We get the distinct feeling Sarah Polley thinks that she’s made a modern "Rashomon." It’s actually just a really good episode of "Maury."
"Frances Ha" is a quirky, coming-of-age story that suffers from comparisons to HBO’s "Girls."
An unnecessarily gloomy sequel to the fun first installment, this voyage of the starship Enterprise is an okay journey but it just doesn’t have the epic feel it needs to match newcomer Benedict Cumberbatch’s amazing villain.
Leave it to Katherine Brooks’ "Face 2 Face" for a loving push to get to the heart of life’s journey. It could be that all Brooks needs is some love and a switch-up of "medicate" to "meditate."
Based on the true story of convicted contract killer Richard Kuklinski, Ariel Vromen’s "The Iceman" gives Michael Shannon the opportunity to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, why he is one of the most talented performers working today.
This film is so amped up it could fly right into the fourth, fifth, and sixth dimensions, were they available. As it is, "Gatsby" has to content itself with a magnificent foray into 3D.
Barbra Streisand IS Fanny Brice; first in the 1968’s beloved musical film and in every other part of her life too: a somewhat homely, working-class New Yawk girl with a magnificent set of lungs who becomes an overnight theatrical sensation.
Norman Jewison’s 1973 film, now in its 40th anniversary re-release, cast Ted Neeley as the white, hippie prophet in the last days of his life, told from Judas’ point of view (after all, the story wouldn’t exist without him).
A broken-family melodrama with a minimum of histrionics, Scott McGehee’s and David Siegel’s "What Maisie Knew" begins from scenes that will be familiar to most viewers who’ve witnessed a custody battle.
