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.

Review: The Man With the Iron Fists

Review: Skyfall

Blond on Bond
By the end of its perhaps overlong 145 minutes Skyfall has earned the franchise the right to yet another sequel, if not another 50 years.

Review: Flight


If Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) could land a doomed plane and save the lives of almost all the passengers while in the midst of a coke- and booze-fueled bender, imagine how well he'd do if he was sober.

Review: The Details


God is not in these details. Jacob Aaron Estes's black comedy gets so dark that it's not even funny.

Review: Tai Chi Zero


Mashup, hodgepodge, or remix — call it what you will, this kung fu odyssey from former action star Stephen Fung offers intermittent pleasures and freaky twists.

Review: Paranormal Activity 4


The scares — and there have been some good ones — in the Paranormal franchise depend on what's not happening.

The most disappointing film of the year, Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer's adaptation of David Mitchell's 2004 novel fails on nearly every level.

John Hawkes on body language


Ask any great actor — Robert De Niro, Christian Bale, Daniel Day-Lewis — if all that physical preparation is necessary for a great performance, and they'll say that sometimes you just have to put your body on the line.

Review: Sinister


From the producer of the fading Paranormal Activity franchise comes a horror movie that is plainly frightening in a way that so few today are.

Two local feature films and a Maine film fest get wicked scary

The horror! the horror!
With just five main characters and an East Texas motel room as its primary setting, thriller film 40 West is as stripped-down and immediate as theater.

Review: Seven Psychopaths


As in his debut In Bruges , Martin McDonagh here plays self-reflexive games while undermining the gangster genre.

Escapist cinema
There are many heroes in Ben Affleck's spunky, polished political thriller. But the biggest hero is Hollywood itself.
