  • Crank High Voltage Review
    By:

    This 'Crank' sequel fails to live up to the original in every way. And that wasn't exactly a high bar to begin with.

  • Pan's Labyrinth Review
    By:

    A product of singular imagination by a filmmaker at the height of his prowess, <em>Pan's Labyrinth</em>&nbsp;is the kind of gothic fairy tale most movies are not--at once wildly fantastical yet elegantly rich in reality, magically inspiring yet profoundly disturbing.

  • Idlewild Review
    By:

    Idlewild&nbsp;goes for broke and often gets there. But it’s an absolutely beautiful disaster, one with no shortage of talent, ambition or future stars, both in front of and behind the lens.

  • John Tucker Must Die Review
    By:

Synopsis
During the last decade over 35,000 people have been killed in Colombia's civil war, a now 40-year-old conflict that has moved from the nation's jungles to its cities, where left-wing guerrillas and right-wing paramilitaries combat each other and government forces. Today urban gangs allied with either side are engaged in a war for the control of neighborhood slums, with adjoining barrios pitted against one another, and the civilian populace caught in the middle. As a resident of one such Medellin barrio, La Sierra, explains, the neighborhood is "in the hands of kids with guns." Depicts a year in the life of three young people in a Medellín barrio: Edisón, the charismatic gang leader and playboy who has fathered six children with six different women; Cielo, a widowed mother with a paramilitary boyfriend in jail, as she struggles to avoid becoming a prostitute; and Jesús, a young gangster whose readiness for death fuses with his indulgence in drugs.
