MOVIE REVIEWS
 
"Borderless" (2015), an Iranian film about mercy and kindness in the face of war, is now playing at the Heartland Film Festival.

Heartland: Borderless

"Borderless" is a story of human decency and survival couched in the somber truth of life in a war zone.

Out of the Furnace

A gripping slow-burn thriller, "Out of the Furnace" is an unrelenting slice of red-blooded Americana.

The Devil’s Double

A sensationalized look back at Uday Hussein, who lived a life as interesting as it was vile. Gorehounds, watch out for this one!

Buried

A nerve-shredding thriller that also offers subtle civilian-in-wartime commentary and a revelatory performance from Ryan Reynolds.

Fair Game

The latest Iraq related movie has flaws, but has plenty of payoffs.

Heroes of the Zeroes: Taxi to the Dark Side

"Taxi to the Dark Side" — its tone fitting its indictments against vulgarly abused power — continues Nick Rogers' look back at the 365 best films of 2000-2009.

The Tillman Story

Tragically true documentary is definitely worth seeing.

Heroes of the Zeroes: Rendition

"Rendition" — a chamber-piece cousin to the "Bourne" symphonies of destruction — continues Nick Rogers' daily look back at the 365 best films of 2000-2009.
