  • 'Elegy': Adaptation sands off Roth's rough edges

    "Elegy" is a curious example of misplaced good taste. Spanish-born director Isabel Coixet's film, adapted by Nicholas Meyer, recasts into softer, more palatable material the 2001 novella "The Dying Animal," the third in Philip Roth's stories driven by the...
  • Movie Review: Elegy - 3 stars out of 5

    Movie adaptations of the works of famous authors can serve as a form of literary criticism. That's not the to say that one can fairly judge the writing of a Philip Roth, based on the movies that have been made from his books. But boiling down the books to...
  • Movie Review: Transsiberian - 4 stars out of 5

    A worldly "bad girl" wife, a naive husband, two too-chatty strangers, drugs, Russian cops and a very long train ride -- that's a combo Alfred Hitchcock would be happy to call his own. Transsiberian is a paranoid, chilling train trek that borrows freely...

    Oscar likes to keep it real
    " The Duchess." "W." " Changeling." " Defiance." "Frost/Nixon." "Milk." " Valkyrie." "Che." What do these films have in common, other than succinct titles? All are based on real people and events, and all happen to have release dates timed to award...

    Cannes '08: It's over, but what just happened?
    In the end, it was entirely appropriate that "What Just Happened" got the last flicker of light from the projector at this year's Festival de Cannes. It's about a troubled movie, starring Sean Penn, that plays to a rainy Cannes within a real-life troubled...

    Alfred Molina is heading for Persia, specifically Disney's "Prince of Persia" franchise pic. Mike Newell is directing the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced adaptation of the classic Ubisoft fantasy-adventure game. The film's plot revolves around Dastan (Jake...

    'The Love Guru' is a comeback of sorts, for Mike Myers and silly comedy
    Mike Myers goofs it old school with The Love Guru, his first non-Shrek role in ages, a film that flies in the face of all that is Apatow in today's screen comedy. It's vintage Myers, with an outrageous, broadly played character borrowed from Peter...
  • Movie Review: 'The Love Guru'

    If Richard Attenborough ever follows up his Charlie Chaplin biopic with a project dedicated to cross-eyed wonder Ben Turpin, casting the leading role won't be hard. Ben Kingsley's the man! The strenuous new Mike Myers vehicle "The Love Guru" is all about...
  • Movie Review: 'The Wackness'

    Luke Shapiro, the depressed high school grad at the center of "The Wackness," labors to be more than just your average white homeboy in 1994 New York City. Occasionally he succeeds. He drops the hip-hop qualifier "mad" (read: very) into every third...
  • 'Prince of Persia' Pushed to 2010

    For fans of "Prince of Persia," the long wait for a theatrical movie release just got a bit longer. According to the industry trade papers, Disney has pushed back the release of its Jerry Bruckheimer-produced video game adaptation from June 19, 2009 to...
