Blu-ray/DVD Review :: The Indian In The Cupboard

By Kevin Taft | Oct 5
The now-20-year-old film teams up Frank Oz with "E.T." script Melissa Mathison for an amiable adaptation of a classic children's book.

Blu-ray/DVD Review :: Fat City

By Jake Mulligan | Oct 5
Each sentence of the source novel becomes a brushstroke. They add up to a masterwork -- one of the finest portraits painted of American unexceptionalism.

Cinema Review :: Taxi

By Jake Mulligan | Oct 5
Panahi's prior films established the unseen forces who control this art form within Iran. But "Taxi" profiles all the people caught under those forces.

Blu-ray/DVD Review :: Dressed to Kill

By Jake Mulligan | Oct 4
The exacting architecture of De Palma's largest sequences turns the very subject of his films into "sight," and this disc helps us to see how he does it.

Cinema Review :: Shanghai

By Kilian Melloy | Oct 2

Cinema Review :: What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy

By Roger Walker-Dack | Oct 2
It's a painful and grim piece to watch, but so completely necessary; full credit to Sands for getting all on record before all the people linked to that gruesome part of history have gone.

Cinema Review :: Freeheld

By Kilian Melloy | Oct 2
While the debate over "Stonewall" rages, there's another movie -- quieter and more powerful -- about GLBT equality stalwarts that deserves our respectful attention, and our grateful cheers.

Cinema Review :: Peace Officer

By Kilian Melloy | Oct 2
This film asks critical, timely questions about America's increasingly militarized police forces, but needs to have asked those questions, and made its case, more clearly.

Cinema Review :: Partisan

By Kilian Melloy | Oct 2
