Blue Jasmine

Woody Allen's latest is immersed in melancholy as the tale of one woman's yearning for normalcy.


Drama

Aimee Williams
Cinema has seen its fair share of manic females and nervous breakdowns, but no one captures bourgeois-Anglo neurosis as astutely as Woody Allen.

Drama

Louis Fowler
Even with The Ultimate Life’s imminent release, it didn’t truly hit Edmond screenwriter Lisa Shillingburg that her screenplay for the movie was becoming a reality until she noticed a standee one afternoon at the movies.

The Accursed

Not quite as bad as its title would suggest.


Drama

Rod Lott
No sooner has an annual meeting of war pals began that host Col. Price (Donald Wolfit, Lawrence of Arabia) announces to the gathered guests, all men but one, that a traitor lurks among them. He suspected as much, but having one friend show up with a knife in his back, literally, sealed the deal. Whoever is to blame most certainly is … wait for it … The Accursed!

Blancanieves

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s off to the arthouse we go.


Drama

Rod Lott

Once upon a time, the idea of a film being silent, foreign and — steee-rike three! — black and white equated to box-office poison. Then 2011’s The Artist won five Academy Awards, including Best Picture; earned $133 million worldwide; and lived happily ever after.

The Fugitive: 20th Anniversary Edition

Still runs like a charm.


Action

Rod Lott

Although The Fugitive was a monster hit in the summer of 1993, it seems to have been lost to the ages. It shouldn't. Perhaps Warner Home Video's 20th-anniversary Blu-ray will help see to that. Remember, folks, this movie was up for Best Picture at the Academy Awards — an action film!

The Bling Ring

Kids do the darndest things.


Drama

Rod Lott

Even my children's worst moments are still above the best moments of the snotty, self-absorbed, home-schooled brats of The Bling Ring, Oscar winner Sofia Coppola's follow-up to 2010's snooze-worthy Somewhere.

An American Hippie in Israel

Psyche-dull-ic.


Drama

Rod Lott

If you don't already hate hippies, An American Hippie in Israel just might shove you into that corner. The 1972 oddity by first- and last-time filmmaker Amos Sefer is as odd as it is unsubtle; this is a film that runs its lone point into the ground with the weight of … well, the steamroller that flattens the flowers in the opening credits. Get it?
