Clear History

Curb your enthusiasm.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Technically, Larry David may not be playing "Larry David" in Clear History, but let's not kid ourselves. The made-for-HBO movie might as well be a Very Special Episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm — it has the beats, the rhythms, the observational improvisation, the happy-go-lucky music, the lisps of J.B. Smoove and, of course, Larry David doing Larry David. The guy has the range of a Playskool walkie-talkie, but hey, can't that be enjoyable for a while?

Kill Your Darlings

Surge, Ginsberg!


Drama

Louis Fowler

American Hustle

David O. Russell's latest proves there’s still a lot of criminal fun to be had from the time of polyester and disco.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
Starting a major motion picture with a bald guy working on a comb-over isn’t the most obvious of choices. But American Hustle begins with Christian Bale, paunchy and fleshy and in decidedly non-Dark Knight shape, fixing his hair with a watchmaker’s precision. He glues down a massive comb-over and maneuvers a monstrous toupee before the coup de grâce: dousing the hirsute creation in nearly half a can of hairspray.

A Single Shot

A backwoods noir.


Thriller

Rod Lott
In the thriller A Single Shot, director David M. Rosenthal follows the path Sam Raimi set in the snow with 1998's A Simple Plan: one that leads blue-collar folk to misappropriated money and, ergo, evil deeds. File it under “When Bad Things Happen to Good Rednecks.”
