    'The Spirit'
    Although Christopher Nolan’s gritty reboot of the Batman franchise owes a heavy debt to Frank Miller's mid-'80s reworking of the character, his name is absent from the movies' credits. But rather than stew, Miller has simply transplanted his...

    'Crank' turns it up to 'silly'
    Balanced at the point where conceptual brilliance and pure stupidity meet, "Crank: High Voltage" turns its central character into a living embodiment of the action movie dictum: Never stop moving. Improbably surviving the airborne plummet at the end of...

    'Waltz With Bashir' leads down filmmaker's nightmare alley
    ARI FOLMAN'S "Waltz With Bashir," which screens tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival, straddles many boundaries: between memory and dream, history and memoir, fact and fiction. Using animation to shift fluidly between frames, the movie...
  • Dev Patel, 'Slumdog Millionaire'

    Dev Patel, 'Slumdog Millionaire'
    The London suburb of Harrow isn't exactly the slums of Mumbai. But Dev Patel's journey from ordinary suburban teenager to feature-film star is only marginally less eventful than the one undertaken by his character in "Slumdog Millionaire," a Dickensian...
  • Review: 'Dark Streets'

    Review: 'Dark Streets'
    Set in a dystopian metropolis bathed in shades of amber and blue, Rachel Samuels' retro-noir "Dark Streets" feels like a labor of love, the kind that blinds as well as inspires. The movie, drawn from Wallace King's adaptation of Glenn Stewart's play,...

    '$9.99' is less than the sum of its parts
    Like most films that crisscross among a handful of city dwellers to mull contemporary ennui, "$9.99" is less than the sum of its parts. The connective tissue of its episodes and set pieces -- some of which pack a memorable punch -- is not a compelling...
