Movie review: ‘The 100-year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared’


Music Box Films

Echoes of the hilarious ineptitude of Woody Allen’s Take the Money and Run and the historic kookiness of Forrest Gump turn up throughout The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, s... Read more

Movie review: ‘Noble’


Aspiration Media

She flips off the nuns who took her in and educated her, is fond of profanity and wasn’t above a little premarital sex. Read more

Movie review: ‘Ride’


Screen Media Films

See Helen Hunt surf. Check out how well-preserved Helen Hunt looks in a wetsuit. Remember how well Helen Hunt handles biting, witty banter. Read more

Movie review: ‘Lambert & Stamp’


Sony Pictures Classics

Full disclosure: I was a teenage Who fan. From the Roger Daltrey poster on the bedroom wall to ill-advised road trips to see the band in far-flung venues throughout the greater Midwest — I considered myself a hard-core fan in the 1970s, as militant in my admiration for the British foursome...
