The Wedding Plan

Film Review

The Wedding Plan

Israeli romantic comedy eschews romance and comedy, but still finds sympathy for its undaunted heroine

The Wedding Plan never fully convinces as a romantic comedy but has a certain charm and velocity that’s hard to escape.

Film Review

Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer

Richard Gere commits to character in influence-peddling drama

If your attention span is sturdy enough and your interest in international business/Israeli politics strong enough to get you through a swamp of wordy details, Norman is worth catching for the committed character work of Richard Gere.

Creepy

Film Review

Creepy

Unsettling Japanese horror-hybrid knows how to make skin crawl

Creepy makes the most of its long-simmering atmosphere of tension and dread, shying away from clear psychological and supernatural resolutions, to provide enough unwholesome suggestions to make you look askance at your fellow man.

The Transfiguration

Film Review

The Transfiguration

Gritty urban horror-drama contemplates the sad life of a vampire wannabe

Michael O’Shea’s savvy, self-conscious debut film, The Transfiguration, is best exerting its queasy magnetism on lovers of art-house horror, who will appreciate its subtle manipulations of the overworked vampire genre.
