Movie Review: ‘The Boxtrolls’

boxtrolls movie

A spooky surrealism has been the specialty of the Oregon-based animation studio Laika, the Pacific Northwest purveyors of 3-D stop-motion. The self-stylized descendants of the Brothers Grimm and Neil Gaiman (whose "Coraline" they adapted for their first of three features), Laika seems to yearn for a little more darkness, a touch of Gothic in our children's films — a laudable and very welcome impul... more

Movie Review: ‘The Equalizer’

If you were lucky enough to catch Denzel Washington in "A Raisin in the Sun" on Broadway, you saw the hugely charismatic actor portray, in an iconic role, the full complexity of a human being: strengths and weaknesses, attributes and flaws, durability and vulnerability.

Not many are likely to make that choice, though, as "The Maze Runner," based on the James Dashner 2009 fantasy novel, will surely multiply the business of "Starred Up" many times over w... more

Movie Review: ‘Tracks’

tracks movie adam driver 2

The movies, it seems, are increasingly headed down paths in the woods, out to open water and, in the case of John Curran's excellent new film "Tracks," into the deepest reaches of the Australian desert. Surely our desire to disconnect, to feel the harshness of nature and the quiet of solitude feeds into the appeal of films like last year's near-wordless sea adventure "All Is Lost" with Robert Redford or the upcoming "Wild," ... more
