("And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?" The Second Coming, 1919 - W. B. Yeats) Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant has arrived in cinemas, and a strange film it is indeed....

70s Rewind: STAR WARS Memories, What Are Yours?

Cannes 2017 Review: THE BEGUILED, A Campy Anatomy of Lust

Review: TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN, First 4 Episodes Dazzle, Confound, Delight

Gorgeous to behold and wonderfully idiosyncratic, Twin Peaks: The Return is nothing like I expected and everything I wanted. The first four episodes were unveiled last night on the Showtime premium network in the U.S. As I recently explained, I...

Destroy All Monsters: Hell Is The Human Race In ALIEN: COVENANT

Spoilers. "Mortal, after all," crows the android David (Michael Fassbender) in Prometheus, upon discovering that the "gods" his crew has sought - the Engineers - can in fact be killed. In Alien: Covenant we learn that David took his name...

Critical Distance: TWIN PEAKS, Please Don't Stop Your Sobbing

Minor chords always kill me. On Sunday evening, April 8, 1990, I sat down to watch a highly-anticipated show, alone in my tiny room in Brooklyn. I watched my tiny television until 9:15 p.m. or so, Eastern Standard Time. And...

70s Rewind: THE BEGUILED, Clint Eastwood in a Weird, Southern Gothic Experiment

Sofia Coppola's new version of The Beguiled will debut at the Cannes Film Festival next week, ahead of its theatrical release in the U.S. on June 23, which makes this is an opportune time to consider Don Siegel's 1971 version...

Notes on Criterion: August 2017 Releases Include HOPSCOTCH, LA POISON, and More

This summer (or winter, depending on where you live), the Criterion Collection will release five movies on Blu-ray and DVD that may be less familiar but are no less potentially fascinating. First up on August 8 is Michael Curtiz's The...

Review: Guy Ritchie's KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD, Very, Very Familiar

Review: ALIEN: COVENANT Uses Horror to Mask Its Shortcomings

Ridley Scott returns to fill in the blanks of the maligned horrors of space, with plenty of screaming and more than enough people around to hear it in Alien: Covenant. His familiar fated take on the Alien genesis, however, sticks more...

Our Favorite Faces Of Cate Blanchett

Guess whose birthday it was yesterday? Yes, Cate Blanchett turned 48, and as the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok showed last month, she still easily commands the screen and has no trouble kicking ass while doing so. In short: she rules....

10+ Years Later: Is WILLOW Still a Magical Journey?

Most people are familiar with the famous trilogies of George Lucas: The Star Wars trilogy. The other Star Wars trilogy. The Indiana Jones trilogy. (Which of course grew into a quadrilogy, whether we like it or not.) But another trilogy...

Blu-ray Review: JEANNE DIELMAN, Criterion's Three-Hour Slog To Pure Cinematic Perfection

Chantal Akerman's Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai Du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles was released by the Criterion Collection a few years ago in a standard-definition DVD, but gets upgraded to Blu-ray this week, which finally gave me the chance to catch up...

Review: LOWRIDERS, Battling for the Soul of an Artist

Self-righteous certitude, seething resentment, and taciturn parental authority collide repeatedly in Lowriders, an exploration of a nuclear family and Mexican-American culture. Directed with conviction by Ricardo de Montreuil and bathed in amber by cinematographer Andrés Sánchez, the film is similar...
