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 […]
Directed by Ben Wheatley, Sightseers follows an awkward UK couple as they vacation in a camper (or caravan) through the countryside, visiting campgrounds and museums dedicated feats of English ingenuity, like tram cars and pencils. That might sound kind of ho-hum, but once blood first-blood is spilled, the couple turns from middle class lovebirds to something like Bonnie and Clyde.
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.
The event that changed everything for Changez was 9/11.
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.
‘Papadopoulos & Sons’ – a British comedy about Greek immigrants – was a surprise hit in its home country. But ‘Sons’ takes a more subtle route than that other surprise hit comedy about an overweight, Hellenic wedding.
Three stories, one city. That’s the narrative conceit director Niccolò Castelli deploys in Tutti Giù. And to help whip it all together there’s the kinetic energy of pretty X-Games-style photography. The movie’s three Italian-speaking Swiss […]
Doom-saying documentaries these days focus mainly on the threat of climate change. They’ve got glaciers melting, landscapes dying, sea levels rising, and coastal cities waiting to slide under the sea. Lots of docs in this […]
