BIG DREAMS DON'T 
ALWAYS COME TRUE Wednesday, April 30, 2014
When I reach my 80s, I hope I'm half the dreamer 85-year-old Alejandro Jodorowsky is today. The iconoclastic director of such hallucinatory surrealist films as El Topo and The Holy Mountain gets the full-on fanboy treatment as director Frank Pavich …
NO NUANCE NEEDED Wednesday, April 30, 2014
Two years on from the first pointless reboot of the Spider-Man story — a mere five years after the previous version had wrapped up — the pointless sequel has arrived. Except now we've had two more years of cogent, witty Avengers flicks, and The …
MEAN BOYS Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Booze and smokes and meanness. It's what's for breakfast. And lunch and dinner. This is what the men of Joe live on. And if a lad hangs around these men long enough, he'll pick up some life lessons, like how to make hookers think you have money and …
INNER DEMON Wednesday, April 23, 2014
"Welcome to the experiment," says 
 seedy-tweedy Professor Coupland 
 to his new documentarian, AV geek Brian — not quite adding "Bwahahahaha!" to the greeting, but you can almost hear it anyway. We had already started to suspect that the …
UNDEREXPOSED Wednesday, April 23, 2014
It's no wonder "paradoxical" is the first word 
 uttered in the documentary Finding Vivian 
 Maier to describe its elusive and mysterious subject. Vivian Maier made her living as a nanny for upper middle-class families in Chicago and New York …
ALMOST HUMAN Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Among the first discernible sounds in Under 
 the Skin — director Jonathan Glazer's 
 instant masterpiece of meditation-on-the-human-experience horror — is Scarlett Johansson's voice, practicing sounds. It runs through individual letter …
DEVOLVING SCI-FI Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Transcendence is timely and prescient, a thoughtful meditation on the dangers of technology and the megalomania of humanity. With talk of artificial intelligence, neuro-engineering and regenerative cell mutations, clearly the filmmakers did their …
LOVE THE BOMB Tuesday, April 15, 2014
I recently found a cheery Internet article about a new scientific study that concluded that “even a ‘small’ nuclear war would destroy the world.” A child of the …
EVERYTHING AND NOTHING Wednesday, April 9, 2014
Not a lot of movies get made about 
 what it's like to be a 13-year-old girl, 
 something which the new film We Are the Best! offhandedly acknowledges at its start — an overlapping din of adults prattling on about politics and divorce. The …
OLYMPIC-LEVEL RECYCLING Wednesday, April 9, 2014
It's like discovering that your grandma has 
 another life as a secret agent or something. 
 The humble yellow school bus, the kind we see rumbling through sleepy American suburban streets, the kind you may once have actually ridden yourself — …
