Demolition

A well-intentioned film about the nuances of grief, "Demolition" tries its best to avert cliches but is largely unsuccessful.

'The Divergent Series: Allegiant'

The Divergent Series: Allegiant

The third film in the "Divergent" series is a letdown, a repetitive switchback in which yet another faction makes the same mistakes as the last one.

The Divergent Series: Insurgent

It may be a cut-rate ripoff of "The Hunger Games," but I still prefer the "Divergent" series for its mixture of fun and danger.

While We're Young - lede

While We’re Young

"While We're Young" is a surprisingly rich film about living life, dealing with the inevitability of age and, by proxy, death.

J. Edgar - inside

J. Edgar

For a biopic about one of the most polarizing political figures of the 20th century, “J. Edgar” is a curiously flat affair.
J. Edgar - inside

J. Edgar

A curiously flat biopic that uses shadowy whisperings about J. Edgar Hoover's personal life to paint a skewed portrait of his public one.
