  • Review: 'Monuments Men' talks big but lacks artful direction

    Earnest and well-intentioned but ultimately inert, "The Monuments Men" talks a better game than it can deliver. Inspired by true tales of World War II derring-do, it can't decide what kind of a film it wants to be and so ends up failing across a fairly...

  • George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' no work of art, reviews say

  • Film Review: 'Bottled Up'

    A terminally quirky indie dramedy, "Bottled Up" risks trivializing prescription drug abuse in service of a trite middle-age romance. Fine actors including topliner Melissa Leo can't disguise the fundamentally weak material of writer-director Enid...
  • 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

    'Inside Llewyn Davis'
    Filmmaking siblings Joel and Ethan Coen ("Fargo," "No Country for Old Men") again earned wide acclaim for their portrait of a fictional early-1960s folk singer, superbly played by Oscar Isaac. While he may lack social graces, Llewyn Davis has undeniable...
