Short for Quetzalcoatl, a prehistoric winged serpent of Aztec mythology, now nesting atop the Chrysler Building, and as if it weren't doing enough damage on its own, several diehard worshippers of the beast are conducting ritualistic human sacrifices to it and then (a more repulsive effect than any of the ...

Sidney Lumet back in Serpico country -- corruption in the NYPD, with a cast of dozens upon dozens -- and (doing without a Tennessee Williams or a Paddy Chayefsky or a David Mamet) taking sole screenwriting credit himself: "You fuck with me, better you piss a kidney stone through your ...

A documentary that focuses on the first 21 years of Quentin Tarantino's career.

The cultural warfare between the Mods and the Rockers in early-Sixties England takes a backseat, most of the way, to the more traditional warfare between the younger generation and their disapproving elders, which tends to blur this movie's identity with any number of Angry Young Man and Swinging London movies ...

Postwar film noir from the country that gave us the term. (Originally released in the U.S. as Jenny Lamour.) The final plot twist reveals nothing so much as the essential trashiness of the project, yet the atmosphere of damp nocturnal streets and seedy backstage show business and European sexual frankness ...

It’s been over a hundred years since a major earthquake hit Oslo, but it only took Fantefilm three years to crank out a seismic sequel to their tsunami hit The Wave. Kristoffer Joner returns as the jinxed geologist fond of “alternative theories” who, in this case, is the only egghead ...

The first true sequel in the twenty-odd entries of the James Bond series, picking up our Blond Bond (Daniel Craig) on the trail of vengeance after the death of his ladylove, Vesper, at the end of Casino Royale. (This was a trail closed off to the newly widowed Bond at ...

A nonmovie from a Joseph Telushkin stage play from a Chaim Grade short story. Two estranged Jews, a devout rabbi and a dissenting writer, hash out their personal and philosophical differences in a Montreal park in the aftermath of the Holocaust. They talk about important matters, and they periodically move ...

The Lost Generation in Paris: James Ivory has fashioned a nice companion piece to his Wild Party (the Lost Generation in Hollywood). This, adapted from the autobiographical novel by Jean Rhys, is a good deal more diffuse than the other (the most gratuitous digression, to do with a skinflint pornographer, ...

Good acting has seldom been more excellent than in this, Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut. Dusty lives up to his nickname with a whiskered senior moment of a movie. (It’s best that Hoffman started late in the game; audiences won’t have to put up with too many more vanity projects like ...

The digging of a new subway line puts Professor Bernard Quatermass (Andrew Keir) in contact with a ancient martian spaceship. Roy Ward Baker directs.

Frank Simon's fascinating documentary about a hotly promoted drag-queen beauty contest staged in New York City's Town Hall and juried by such aficionados as Andy Warhol, Larry Rivers, and Terry Southern. The movie's minor defects are attributable to the modest journalistic scope of the project: a certain technical raggedness and ...

A spot of simulated Royals-watching, ably guided by the seasoned Stephen Frears: a satisfying, if unsurprising and unrevealing and unimaginative re-enactment of what must have gone on behind closed doors in the week after the death of Princess Di, in specific the diplomatic efforts of the newly elected Tony Blair ...

John Boorman's masterful followup to his 1987 semi-autobiographical Hope and Glory. Then, the story was about a boy growing up in the London Blitz. Now it's 1952, and young Bill Rohan is a conscript in the Army, teaching typing on a domestic base. For the first 20 minutes or ...

The man could sing.
