Rookie, The

It's very easy to wax poetic about the sport of baseball, and I'm not just talking "Mighty Casey has struck out." Baseball may not be the most popular sport in North America, but it has a history and mythology like no other. The giants of past er...

Serious Man, A

Seven Psychopaths

For about 75 minutes, Seven Psychopaths is a rollicking good movie - kinetic, clever, funny, and brutal. Then, inexplicably, it falls apart. Perhaps writer/director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) didn't know how to end it, or perhaps his attempts to d...

Spanish Prisoner, The

What would it be like if celebrated playwright and screenwriter David Mamet collaborated with Franz Kafka? While we'll never know for sure, The Spanish Prisoner gives a good indication. This film, the fifth to be authored and directed by Mamet (w...

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Kings

Courage Under Fire was the first American movie about the Gulf War. Since then, there haven't been many others. David O. Russell's Three Kings becomes one of only a few mainstream efforts to venture into this underpopulated cinematic territory. ...

Tragedy of Macbeth, The

A wonderful thing about Shakespeare’s canon is that those plays can form the vehicles by which any director’s unique vision can emerge. Laurence Olivier, Orson Welles, and Kenneth Branagh all recognized this. With The Tragedy of Macbeth, Joel ...

True Grit

True Grit, one of the best films of 2010, is a reminder of why remakes are not always bad. The Coen Brothers' interpretation of the 1968 Charles Portis novel is superior in almost every way (except one) to the 1969 Henry Hathaway edition. And, whil...
