As bad as so many sequels are, I often find myself feeling sorrier for the characters in them than the audiences who subject themselves to overly familiar franchises. I mean, think about it. Can you imagine being the characters in the “Hangover” series?
Following two of the most acerbic films of his career, Frances Ha is like a breath of fresh air for director Noah Baumbach. The cool and breezy effect is in no small part due to […]
Here are my choices for the best Twin Cities screenings for cinephiles this week.
J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” neo-franchise should have any fan of the classic Gene Roddenberry series feeling (or, if you’re a Vulcan, thinking) conflicted.
The hits just keep coming. Upstream Color is being brought back for an encore run at the St. Anthony Main Theater on Friday, along with another pair of specialty draws. The Heights continues its dazzling Hollywood extravaganza. The Walker’s got a couple of can’t-miss arty attractions.
Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! was a potent but artistically irresponsible shot of absinthe. For every person that couldn’t stand the too-eager mess, there was another who fell into deep intoxication at every Looney Tunes, theater geek flourish.
When The Angels’ Share kicked off the 2013 Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival last month, screenwriter Paul Laverty was in attendance to see both opening night screenings sell out.
There’s something wicked in the air. Nearly all of my suggested best bets for Twin Cities film fans are either horror movies or arty interpolations of horror tropes or dissertations on the variety to be found within the genre.
I give all due credit to my brother-in-law for pointing out to me something that I hadn’t been perceptive enough to notice before: that Tony Stark/Iron Man is possibly the only superhero whose true identity is scarcely a secret to the world.
For movie fans, there are two distinct seasons: awards season and summer. Some people consider them the respective high and low points of the year. These people are killjoys.
Alright, now you can afford to take a small breath. May is just about here, and the behemoth MSPIFF has finally drawn to a close.
It seems the Minnesota shorts programs get richer or at least fuller with each passing year. There were no less than three programs this year, and that’s just to cover the narrative features. Here are […]
We’re in the final stretch of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival, but in case your plate wasn’t full enough, there are a few other options around town.
The phrase “the banality of evil” has been tossed around a few times during the last week, once the social network took a glimpse at the purported Twitter account of the 19-year-old suspected in last week’s Boston Marathon bombings.
Remember the RNC Welcoming Committee? That group of self-described anarchists who were caught supposedly planning to shatter Molotov cocktails at the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul?
