  • Capsule reviews of feature films

    ALAN PARTRIDGE 2 1/2 stars. Steve Coogan imports his long-running stock comic character to the U.S. Partridge, a small-town British DJ, is a vainglorious twit. In this thin feature he gets caught up in a siege at his station that goes on far, far too...
  • Film Review: 'Last Passenger'

    Review: Thrilling 'Last Passenger' charges hard on low budget

    Review: 'Le Week-End' offers an unremittingly bleak 48 hours in Paris
