Make time for the brilliant, moving conclusion to Richard Linklater’s trilogy of tales of Jesse and Celine.
Drama Phil Bacharach
In Before Midnight, the latest of director Richard Linklater’s odes to romance — a high-minded odyssey begun with Before Sunrise in 1995 and continued with Before Sunset in 2004 — there’s a sly bit that reflects the personal baggage fans of this trilogy bring to the multiplex.
Horror Rod Lott
That innocent exchange of tough questions becomes Saw: The Home Game in IFC Midnight’s release of Would You Rather. How I would love to have seen an audience react to this in a theater!

Documentary Rod Lott
Understandably, a documentary about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer that
weaves fictional elements with fact sounds like a wretched, evil,
exploitative thing. Instead, it's a small marvel of microcinema — and
another argument for the storytelling power of the nonfiction format.
Sci-Fi Rod Lott
It's too easy to compare Errors of the Human Body
to the "body horror" entries on David Cronenberg's CV — too easy
because it's all too apt. As much as it brings that master director to
mind, the new film is original enough to stand on its own terms.
