Review: Women on the Run

Thelma & Louise: Everybody involved keeps saying that they never intended to make a statement. But this movie is nevertheless one hell of a statement.

Quick Take: The Horror, The Horror

Penny Dreadful: Sumptuously designed, the show was bloody but often beautifully written.

Anton Yelchin Would’ve Been a Perfect Mr. Mercedes

I remember seeing Anton Yelchin in David Duchovny’s directing debut House of D a decade ago, thinking this kid is the stand-out of the movie.

Review: Murderer Among Us

M: Fritz Lang’s first talking picture became one of his masterpieces, a riveting thriller.

Quick Take: Two and a Half Men

Central Intelligence: No star chemistry in the world is powerful enough to carry a story that’s so thin and contrived.

The Three Challenges of the Orlando Attack

Every citizen must understand the complexity of these attacks, or they will fall victim to ISIS propaganda, who wants us all to be afraid, and people like Trump, Le Pen and Putin.

Review: Fools’ Gold

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre: The director has a lot to say about greed and the depths of poverty and men’s minds, but he’s also packed the film with loads of tension.
