      Everly

      By Entertainer
      Nothing like a trashy, all-hell-breaks-loose onslaught of blood, bullets and babes that borrows inspiration from a recycling bin stuffed with leftovers from ‘60s grindhouse films, Japanese horror, “Kill Bill,” “Saw” and...

        The Salvation

        By Entertainer
        A Danish revenge Western starring Mads Mikkelsen, huh? If the credited director were Nicholas Winding Refn, the idea could pass for a “Funny or Die” pastiche. A little bit inside, admittedly—one needs to be a real up-to-the-minute...

          Futuro Beach

          By Entertainer
          “What kind of movie is this? Where could it possibly be heading?” Normally, if you find yourself asking such questions, say, a half-hour into a movie, it’s a sign of one of two possible things. Either the film is a hopeless,...

              My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn

              By Entertainer
              I’m a sucker for a great behind-the-scenes moviemaking documentary. “Hearts of Darkness” and “Burden of Dreams” are must-sees, and the first thing I look at when Criterion announces their monthly releases is the list of...

                  After her Oscar-winning role in "Still Alice," Julianne Moore turns in another dynamic performance as the narcissistic actress Havana Segrand in David Cronenberg's skewered portrait of Hollywood in "Maps to the Stars."  Moore picked up Best...

                      By Entertainer
                      Gorgeous people in expensive clothing trade snappy banter in luxurious locations. It’s all giddy, fizzy fun—until it isn’t anymore—in “Focus.”But co-stars Will Smith and Margot Robbie remain consistently...

                        Stick Figure Cinema, by Damian Arlyn

                        By Entertainer
                        I'm enamored with "Stick Figure Cinema," a series of shorts by my friend Damian Arlyn. Silent save for an old fashioned projector noise, they're crudely animated renditions of famous scenes from great films: Indiana Jones escaping the collapsing...
