Film review: 'Blinded by the Light'

Coming at a particularly desperate moment, Springsteen’s songs about being stuck in a small town rut and yearning for more strike a chord with a Pakistani teen and his dreams of escape.

Film review: 'Ready or Not'

With their fleet, funny, and gleefully bloodthirsty horror-comedy, directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett deliver a satisfying skewering of the one-percenters with a deadly game of hide-and-seek.

Film review: 'Honeyland'

Offering an intimate portrait of a life lived in harmony with the natural world, the film follows Hatidze Muratova, the last in a long line of Macedonia’s nomadic beekeepers, living isolated in the mountainous region deep within the Balkans.

Film review: 'Maiden'

The gripping documentary recounts the story of 24-year-old Tracy Edwards and her dream of leading the first all-female crew to sail the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Race. It offers an inspiring look at an unsung trailblazer in the fight against sexism in the world of sports.

Film: reflecting on Rutger Hauer's work

Dutch actor Rutger Hauer passed away in his Netherlands home on July 19 at the age of 75. With a prolific and versatile career, Hauer was an actor with the unique ability to make a movie better simply by being in it. He mastered the art of delivering legitimately great performances in even the schlockiest of films.

Film review: 'Crawl'

It's a film with little on its mind besides pure excitement, and you could probably read some minor commentary about the climate and global warming’s effect on severe weather events that force animals to find new hunting grounds. But that’s not really the focus here.

Film review: 'Wild Rose'

Telling the story of a Scotland-based singer who dreams of making it as a Nashville country music star, “Wild Rose” is touching, toe-tapping musical dramedy anchored by a dynamite performance from star Jessie Buckley.
