Film Review: ‘The Incident’

October 15, 2015

Two brothers flee a determined cop, clattering down an anonymous stairwell in an apartment complex. A bickering family sets out on a long road trip to the coast. Neither party will get much further: The stairwell and road are apparently infinite loops in time and space. In “The Incident,” Mexican scripter-helmer Isaac Ezban crafts a […]

Film Review: ‘East Side Sushi’

September 21, 2015

Courtesy of Blue Sun Pictures Given the recent rise in popularity of the mutant-sized sushi burrito and other dubious but satisfying fusion-cuisine hybrids, the time feels improbably right for “East Side Sushi,” a gently winning foodie fable about a Mexican-American chef who dreams of working behind the bar at a Japanese restaurant.

Venice Film Review: ‘In Jackson Heights’

September 5, 2015

Courtesy of Venice Film Festival When taken as a whole, Frederick Wiseman’s U.S.-set documentaries are a celebration of sorts of sloppy American democracy in action: The system may be flawed at the top, but its grassroots pugnacity is consistently admired from the director’s iconic, unobtrusive viewpoint. Jackson Heights is a multiethnic neighborhood in Queens, and “In Jackson […]

Berlin Film Review: ‘600 Miles’

February 7, 2015

Film Review: ‘Princess Jellyfish’

February 5, 2015

What iridescent beauty stings at the merest physical touch? That would be Tsukimi, the dweeby heroine of “Princess Jellyfish,” whose Prince Charming is the drippy, gelatinous kind. Taisuke Kawamura’s dramedy depicting a jellyfish nut’s friendship with a cross-dressing fashionista and her bumpy romance with a cherry-boy politician is cutesy, escapist fun. Paying token tribute to Japan’s famous […]

Film Review: ‘McFarland, USA’

February 4, 2015

The stirring true story of how a scrappy Latino high-school running team beat the odds is treated as a Kevin Costner vehicle first and foremost in “McFarland, USA,” a cross-cultural cross-country drama that feels descended from a long line of minority-underdog movies like “The Blind Side,” “Stand and Deliver,” “Pride” and the Oscar-winning documentary “Undefeated.” […]
