Documentary shows America’s system is far from neat

Health care on the rocks
Toward the end of 2012, the US Census Bureau reported that for the first time in years, the number of uninsured Americans had actually fallen — to 48.6 million, from an all-time high of 49.9 million in 2010.

Review: Bullet To The Head


Veteran director Walter Hill's return to the screen looks, sounds, and feels like an '80s action movie beefed-up for modern audiences with heaping helpings of messy blood squibs.

film_side-effects

Review: Side Effects

Placebo effect
Ironically, the filmmaker who started his career with sex, lies, and videotape , a film boosting female sexuality and empowerment, now ends it with a so-so thriller that resorts to the same old misogyny.

Review: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters


From the occult-infested mind of Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola comes another craptastic orgy of gore — one that's way better than it has any right to be.

Review: Movie 43


Don't subject yourself to this crap, which is credited to nine writers and 12 directors, among them Farrelly, Steven Brill (the auteur behind Adam Sandler's Little Nicky ), Steve Carr ( Paul Blart: Mall Cop ), and (sigh) Brett Ratner.

Amour is less

Oscar predictions: Django and Zero fade as Lincoln landslide looms


Had you asked a couple of weeks ago, I would have given Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty good odds at raining on Steven Spielberg's Lincoln parade. But reality has since intruded.

django_unchained_review

Review: Django Unchained

Spaghetti southern style
Tarantino reconfigures that classic American genre, the Western, setting his new film in the Deep South, creating what he terms a "Southern," while infusing it with the spaghetti sensibilities of Sergio Leone (director of Tarantino's favorite film, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly ) and, more so, the genre grit of that other Sergio, Corbucci (director of 1966's Django , naturally).

Review: Playing For Keeps


Gabriele Muccino's misogynistic family sports film stars Gerard Butler as has-been Scottish footie star George Dryer, a man who once "got more ass than a toilet seat," according to screenwriter Robbie Fox, who bends it like Beckham to present George as the willing victim of oversexed soccer moms making advances toward their kids' new coach.

GIFT GUIDE 2012
Call us homebodies, call us lazy, but the plain fact is that most nights we're more than happy to stay at home on the couch in ratty sweats, cozied up to a box of wine.

Review: Killing Them Softly


Though Andrew Dominik shot his follow-up to 2007's The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford in N'awlins, it's a Boston movie through-and-through.

Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2


As vampire/teen heartthrob Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) embraces his bride, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), for the first time since she died (and awoke as a new member of the bloodsucking Cullen clan) while giving birth to the rapidly aging Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), he smiles and says, "We're the same temperature finally."

Keep the Lights On avoids stereotypes but not shame

A decade of dysfunction
Keep the Lights On is only one hour and 42 minutes long, but by the conclusion of this 2012 indie film by director Ira Sachs, you feel that you've known the main characters, Erik and Paul, for much longer.
