The Weinstein Company has released a new poster for SIN CITY: A DAME TO DIE FOR. A couple weeks ago, I posted a clip in which Nancy (Jessica Alba) got a little crazy. Gone are the flowing golden locks, having been hacked off in that clip. Nancy stands front and center here and no longer looks like a fragile angel. Alba leads a loaded cast that includes Mickey Rourke, Josh Brolin, Powers Boothe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Martin Csokas, Rosario Dawson, Jamie Chung, Jamie King, Alexa Vega, Julia Garner, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Stacy Keach and Jude...

Film Review: OBVIOUS CHILD Jul04

Film Review: OBVIOUS CHILD

Directed by Gillian Robespierre Written by Gillian Robespierre Starring: Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gabby Hoffman, David Cross, Polly Draper, Richard Kind Slate plays a 27 year old stand-up comic in OBVIOUS CHILD who finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand. It is clear from the beginning that the only option she considers for herself is an abortion. But her road to the abortion is a painful one, a difficult journey we rarely see now that the typical movie has the pregnant woman decide to have the child. Slate is not so easy to like—her comedy routines are brutally scatological and honest, much like Louie C.K. But it is harder to hear...

Film Review: PALO ALTO Jun20

Film Review: PALO ALTO

Palo Alto Directed by Gia Coppola Written by Gia Coppola, based on the short stories by James Franco Starring: Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Zoe Levin, James Franco, Val Kilmer Based on Franco’s short stories of the same title, this film often feels like a series of vignettes. But somehow, it works. Perhaps it’s the talented direction of Coppola, perhaps it’s the seriousness with which it treats its disaffected teens, or maybe it’s the lovely cinematography. It starts badly with a scene we have been witness to so many times. The teen party: drugs, drinking, sex, bullying, bragging, all the usual stuff. We have been there both in...
