'The Canyons' Review: Lindsay Lohan Shows Flashes of Old Talent in Micro-Indie

The Canyons isn’t the worst movie I’ve seen this year. It’s not even the worst movie I’ve seen this summer. It has a pronounced lean-and-hungry look (it was shot in three weeks on a budget of $200,000, much of it Kickstarted), and the story--a slice of Tinseltown noir cranked out by Bret Easton Ellis--is almost laughably lurid.

'Pacific Rim' Review: $185 Million Mash Note to Godzilla Movies of Yore

'To the Wonder' Review: A Vague Afterthought from the Mind of Terrence Malick

Sitting through Terrence Malick’s "To the Wonder" is like watching a stranger sorting through a packet of old photographs. To the photographer, the snapshots recall a story. To us they’re disconnected episodes in an unknown narrative. The people we see in them are laughing, crying, whatever; but we have no idea who they really are, and we never find out.

'Easy Money' Review: Swedish Crime Thriller Sizzles with Moral Shadings

"Easy Money" is a Swedish thriller thick with drug gangs, double crosses, and desperate men grappling for a way out through the bullet storms that beset them all around. Classic crime stuff, but in this case distinguished by the emotional connections among the characters and a flickering light of moral consciousness. Jul 14, 2012 7:00 AM PT
