GLEN CAMPBELL WILL NOT FADE AWAY Wednesday, December 17, 2014
In the last decade, there has been an influx of 
 distinctive and intimate music documentaries. You're Gonna Miss Me (2005) explored the life of Texas psych-rock progenitor Roky Erickson. That same year, The Devil and Daniel Johnston was an …
At long last, the bloated, self-important, 
 seemingly endless Hobbit trilogy has 
 ended. Mercifully. I honestly thought we'd never make it, what with Bilbo and company traveling for what felt like forever in the first film only to say in the …
"EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS" IS AN EPIC FAIL Wednesday, December 10, 2014
It's … big. Whatever else you might want to 
 say about Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and

Don't tell Hollywood I said this, but chopping 
 the final novel of the Hunger Games trilogy 
 into two films might be the best thing to happen to the franchise. I mean, it didn't work for Harry Potter — the first Deathly Hallows film was …
I truly believe that meaningful personal liberty is impossible without guaranteed personal privacy. Which is why Citizenfour — Laura Poitras' new documentary about Edward Snowden's decision to expose the U.S. government's massive, secret and …
Wednesday, November 12, 2014
We all need cinematic heroes, and Birdman, both character and film, fits that role with aplomb. Designed to aesthetically challenge, frustrate, inspire, amuse and amaze, Alejandro González Iñárritu's new movie — and I do mean new — is the …
