Away We Go
November 1st, 2009

So the pair take flight to find a hometown that feels right, calling on friends and relatives around North America in a series of vignettes that teach them how not to be good parents. Between the goofy, talky soccer mum (Janney) to the extreme Aquarian hippie (Gyllenhaal), the two end up more confused than they started.

The Strangers
September 1st, 2008

First time writer/director Bryan Bertino goes for nerve sawing tension rather than gore, and thoroughly achieves it through inventive camera angles and an unsettling score and sound effects. Unfortunately logic, natural behaviour and consistency are all sacrificed on the altar to achieve such a living, breathing sense of dread, and cliché often curbs an otherwise realistic depiction of events.

March 6th, 2014

The genres, styles, moviemakers, actors, technology and even corporate strategies sending ripples across the metaphysical pond of the industry to this day all happened in 1984.


Slacker Uprising
August 1st, 2009

It doesn’t feel like a Michael Moore movie, with little of his cult-of-personality showboating. There are several ultimately pointless musical acts and it gets a little repetitive, but the editing manages to generate a sense of slowly building hope which history reminds us wasn’t enough to spare us from Bush’s second term.

Criminal Heroes
May 17th, 2008

What else but the movies could make the bad guys the heroes? They’re mostly at home in comedies or films with comic elements, because while we know there are guys out there who can crack safes, launch computer viruses or deal drugs, they’d never act against the innocent …would they?
