Movie Review: A Dangerous Method

January 27, 2012
Movie Review: A Dangerous Method

David Cronenberg has always been drawn to psychologically challenging material, especially when it has to do with breaking societal taboos. Flip through his filmography (Videodrome, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, Crash) and you’ll see some seriously depraved stuff. He has mellowed substantially in recent years (The History of Violence, Eastern Promises), but thankfully,...

Movie Review: “Man on a Ledge”

January 27, 2012
Movie Review: “Man on a Ledge”

Maybe I was overly optimistic, but Harold Lloyd’s classic “Safety Last!” was the first association I found myself thinking of as I waited for the unfortunately limp Man on a Ledge to begin. In the infamous sequence from the silent film, Lloyd scales a building (and hangs from a clock) which provides shock, humor,...

Movie Review: The Grey

Movie Review: The Grey

January is usually known as an arid wasteland for new film releases. Studios dump all the films that weren’t good enough for awards consideration, and the results are not pretty. My expectations for The Grey were tempered accordingly. I expected a campy creature-feature, nothing more. What I got instead was a complex, touching and...

Movie Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

January 20, 2012
Movie Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

I suspect this film will be quite polarizing for audiences, but not for the reasons you may think. Though Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close takes place in the days, weeks and months following 9/11, it is essentially devoid of controversy or political overtones. The tragedy serves as a catalyst for the story of one...

Movie Review: ‘Red Tails’

January 20, 2012
Movie Review: ‘Red Tails’

I think George Lucas deserves some credit where it’s due, and say what you will about the prequels, the opening to Revenge of the Sith, with the dogfight over the planet was pretty awe-inspiring. So when the trailer for Red Tails came out, I was excited to see a Lucasfilm production that focused mainly...

Movie Review: ‘The Artist’

Movie Review: ‘The Artist’

  I didn’t know what to expect. From the endless trailer play The Artist received at the Landmark on Clark, I have to admit I didn’t have much hope. It looked too “artsy,” too cute, too self-important. That’s at least how it seemed. And then the reviews started coming in, and pretty much everyone...

Movie Review: Carnage

January 13, 2012
Movie Review: Carnage

Remember back in the day when MTV’s The Real World was all the rage? I waited every week with bated breath to see what shenanigans would occur when people “stopped being polite and started getting real.” That tagline is a pretty good synopsis of Carnage, a biting drama directed by Roman Polanski. The film takes...
