There still remains plenty of interest in the manhunt story, told with the imaginative gimmicks of one of Andersen's gorier fairy tales plus some modernized (ca. 1931) touches of abnormal psychology, in which everybody from the enraged police department down to the edgy criminal fraternity pounds the trail of a ...

The venue flips from high school Animal House to sure-fire slaughterhouse after a vengeful veterinary assistant converts her garage into a niteclub for underage teens. Fifteen years in the business, with forty features and dozens more television credits behind her, it took The Help to finally turn Octavia Spencer into ...

First punch!

The directorial debut of John Turturro, who also handles the title role, is a memorial to his father (1925-1988), a first-generation Italian immigrant, carpenter, and then independent contractor in Queens, N.Y., in the mid-1950s. Under the circumstances, it's a marvel of objectivity, or maybe not quite such a marvel of ...

Maudlin apologia for the Japanese in World War II, set prudently just after truce. Certainly, children make a good symbol (or even good definition) of innocence, and a Little League baseball team makes a good symbol of the future. (How is it, though, that a team that's no match for ...

Orson Welles's first screen treatment — and a rather harsh one — of Shakespeare, shot in three weeks on tacky Western sets at Republic Studios. The visuals, moody and blustery, are interesting at times, monotonous at length. They, and the very approximate Scottish burrs, pretty thoroughly obscure the verbals. But ...

Roman Polanski's neither very engaging, nor very clearly motivated, version of the Shakespeare tragedy, acted by a young and little-known cast. There are a few stunning surrealistic visions, and the violence, in tin-soldier armor suits, is herky-jerkily hectic. Several minor roles in the original play have been combined economically into ...

Early in Shakespeare’s Scottish play, Banquo asks Macbeth, “Were such things here as we do speak about? Or have we eaten on the insane root that takes the reason prisoner?” Director Justin Kurzel seems to have taken this line to heart, and so set out to answer the question, “What ...

SNL skit torturously stretched out and unrestrainedly pottied up. (A villain named von Cunth. Hence, “Fuck you, Cunth,” etc.) In the result, the original models (TV’s MacGyver primarily, but Rambo, Commando, and cousins) are invariably funnier than the spoof. Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe, Val Kilmer, Powers Boothe; directed ...

Co-writer and co-director Robert Rodriguez (writing with Álvaro Rodriguez, directing with Ethan Maniquis) makes a feature-length reality of the hypothetical little teaser trailer tucked into the overstuffed package of Grindhouse, a bad dream come true. If nothing else, it gives a nice big fat leading role to Danny Trejo, a ...

Director Robert Rodriguez overworks a good joke. The Mexican superman Machete started out as the star of a gag trailer in a grindhouse homage, then grew - like a grapevine from a cutting, or a starfish from a single severed arm - into a full-fledged feature, starring Danny Trejo's magnificently ...

Gerard Butler plays the life-based Sam Childers, an ex-con hellraiser who catches some gospel piety from his wife (Michelle Monaghan). He hauls the family to Sudan, where children are being brutalized (or doing the brutalization), and in the name of God he puts his violent skills to work as a ...

Christian Bale, doing a Raging De Niro in reverse, put himself on a Dachau diet and lost in the neighborhood of sixty pounds — and for what? A suspenseless psychological thriller about a factory worker with a distorted reality. The distortions are eventually explained, if anyone's still interested. Director Brad ...

This film plays as part of the San Diego Latino Film Festival's Cine Gay Showcase. According to the festival brochure, "Antonio Serrano (Sexo, Pudor, y Lágrimas) directs an all-star cast including Miguel Rodarte, Cecilia Suárez, Ana de la Reguera, and Aislinn Derbez in this uproarious comedy about a bad boy ...

Chilean director Andrés Wood deals with his country's Subject A -- Allende -- but he deals with it from the fresh, the naive, the novel perspective of a freckle-faced little redhead (an autobiographical approximation, slightly more aged, of the filmmaker himself) who befriends a lower-class charity case at his exclusive ...
