The Company You Keep

Old radicals don't learn new tricks.


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
Baby boomers can be their own worst enemy. The generation that was going to change the world instead settled on thinking the world of themselves. Youthful idealism, aging and compromised idealism, pining for that youthful idealism — nothing fuels anti-boomer sentiment like boomer sentimentality.

The Place Beyond the Pines

The route of ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ is great to good.


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
The Place Beyond the Pines is two-thirds of a great movie. Director Derek Cianfrance’s follow-up to 2010’s Oscar-nominated Blue Valentine is a tense, powerful crime thriller with some weighty stuff on its mind. It speaks to the filmmaker’s know-how that not even a crazily contrived third act can damper its haunting power.

Leaf Hands — Your Imagination


Indie

Louis Fowler
While listening to the opening track of Leaf Hands’ Your Imagination, it’s almost impossible to not stare at the cover art: a bleak, early-winter rural landscape wherein distant figures huddle together and feel a lo-fi sense of melancholy.

Get this: It has the devil inside! Whaddaya say you round up some physics students to spend the weekend here and see if they can't figure out whassup?"

The Hangover Part III

Let's 'Hang' again.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Once The Hangover became a monster hit in the summer of '09, a sequel was inevitable. So was the backlash, which greeted The Hangover Part II upon its arrival two years later. Complained the multiplex populace, "It's too much like the first one!"
