Movie review: Redford and Nolte take comic stroll along Appalachian Trail

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

The lure of the wild has recently attracted an interesting batch of solitude seekers: Reese Witherspoon (“Wild”), Mia Wasikowska (“Tracks”) and Robert Redford, twice.

Movie review: ‘U.N.C.L.E.’ is high style, low substance

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

It’s not until the climax of “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” a colorful, Cold War-era spy thriller, that its main failing becomes clear: The plot doesn’t matter. The characters don’t care. The script doesn’t care. And, the audience shouldn’t …

Movie review: Allen’s latest is a meditation on meaning and murder

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Woody Allen has always been interested in man’s search for meaning in life — a search he clearly sees as futile. Who can forget the young woman in “Play it Again, Sam,” staring at a Jackson Pollock painting …

Movie review: ‘Vacation’ is a funny homage to its predecessor

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

The great American family road trip seems, in the 32 years since we first met the Griswolds, as antiquated a concept as ever. Middle class families fly now — device enabled, efficiency obsessed and always aware of the …
