American Gangster

As much as American Gangster loves Frank's intelligence and charisma, it must also condemn his criminality.

Film

Talk To Me (2007)

Part biopic, part portrait of an era, Talk to Me presents an ongoing dilemma -- what does it mean to be "black enough" and how does "talk" shape the question and answers?

Future Shock: The Death of Serious Science Fiction

The serious Science Fiction film genre is dead or at least on cinematic life support. As the new millennial marches forward, and an omnipresent production paradigm that substitutes spectacle for smarts, futurist filmmaking is definitely gasping for breath.

Film

Monkey Business (Part 3: July)

Finally, a month with only one remaining series contender. All wizard based Potter-y aside, this will be the most tenuous time for the business called show. After a strong start, the eccentric collection of entertainments here could make or break this potentially record shattering motion picture season.

Reviews

Children of Men (2007)

Even with so much attention paid to her body and to her child, Kee's story is secondary to Theo's, as his loss of hope must be undone and his past redressed.

Film

Kinky Boots (2006)

Chiwetel Ejiofor is the reason to see Kinky Boots. Always charismatic and compelling, he is here also fabulous.

'He's homemade,' Joss Whedon says of Mal. 'And he's kind of a schmo a lot of the time.'"

Serenity (2005)

It's not hard to tell where Serenity's moral druthers lie: much like Whedon's Scoobies, the crew here is an enthusiastic, energetic, and sometimes ornery bunch.

Dirty Pretty Things (2002)

The title refers to many 'things,' most simultaneously dirty and pretty.

Film

Love Actually (2003)

On occasion, the film allows a jaded sensibility to worm its way into this otherwise picturesque world.

Film

Dirty Pretty Things (2002)

Dirty Pretty Things is a film about beaten down, exhausted, tenaciously hopeful workers.
