Review: A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III


In Roman Coppola's sophomoric second feature (his 2001 debut CQ was promising), Charlie Sheen shows restraint as the titular asshole, a dissolute ad designer and solipsistic whiner who's mooning over the loss of his latest love.

upside-down

Review: Upside Down


Had Ed Wood Jr. directed Fritz Lang's Metropolis , he couldn't have achieved the earnest dopiness of Juan Solanas's sci-fi allegory — nor the striking images.

abs-of-death

Review: The ABCs of Death


Judging from their contributions, some of the filmmakers behind this 26-part anthology find death less fearsome than the thought of a cute girl farting.

Review: Lore

Life during wartime
Although set in Germany in the last days of World War II, Australian director Cate Shortland's harsh and poetic survival tale recalls the dreamlike allegory of Nicholas Roeg's Outback-set Walkabout (1971).

Oz and beyond: Three months of Spring blockbusters


The blockbusters are coming, but this spring Hollywood offers a brief respite, movies that transport audiences to different realms, that awaken dreams, and evoke the magic of love and the imagination, films with titles like Trance , To the Wonder , and Oblivion .

Review: Habibi


As seen in Susan Youssef's wrenching Habibi , it's not easy being a poet in Palestine.

Review: Let My People Go!


First-time French director Mikael Buch makes it easy to categorize his characters in this sometimes funny, often strident farce.

Review: Rubberneck

Lab Rat
Maybe because he's one himself, Alex Karpovsky has a knack for making movies about obsessives.

Shadow of the Master: Park Chan-wook

Outside the frame
Park Chan-wook, whose Korean films Oldboy , Thirst , and others have earned him cult status in the West, acknowledges the similarities between his first Hollywood movie, Stoker , and Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt . Call it an homage, since a Hitchcock film convinced him to become a director.

Revenge play
Park Chan-wook takes his time terrifying an audience.

The Oscars: Argo's golden fleece

Review: Call Me Kuchu

Survival skills
David France's powerful How To Survive a Plague, recording the battle to obtain treatment in the early days of the AIDS crisis, has deservedly been nominated for a Best Documentary Oscar.

white-zombie

Review: White Zombie

Working stiffs
This Kino Classics release is worth it if only for historical purposes, since it demonstrates that from the start zombie films embodied the Marxist paradigm of capitalism (Lugosi) versus labor (zombies).

Review: Beautiful Creatures

Mis spelled
Throughout his adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's YA novel, Richard Lagravenese drops the names of books that would have provided a more rewarding way of spending a couple of hours than watching this movie.

Last action heroes?

Outside The Frame
Maybe it was the moment in The Last Stand when a guy exploded, or the scene when Arnold sawed someone in half with a Vickers machine gun, or maybe it was the 10th brain-splattering bullet to the head in Sylvester Stallone's Bullet to the Head .
