Review: 'The Forger'

The stakes shouldn't feel as low as they do in "The Forger." An art theft thriller about stealing one of the most famous paintings by Claude Monet should have been a suspenseful peek into the criminal art forger's craft, a Boston underworld character study built around accomplished stars such as...

    Review: 'Adult Beginners'

    With an awful lot of American indies, there appears to be some sort of self-regulation in place preventing any serious highs or lows, any stylistic risks or surprises.

    Part serial-killer thriller, part old-school anti-Soviet propaganda, "Child 44" plays like a curious relic of an earlier Cold War mindset, when Western audiences took comfort that they were living on the right side of the Iron Curtain and relied on movies to remind them as much.

    Review: 'Monkey Kingdom'

    Compile all the sufferings and adversities heaped upon all the vulnerable protagonists in the complete works of Charles Dickens, from "Little Dorrit" to "Oliver Twist," and you'd still fall short of the 81 minutes of hardship endured by Maya, the simian heroine of Disneynature's new nature documentary...

    Review: 'Beyond the Reach'

    "The Most Dangerous Game" is one of the more enduring thriller formulas. About a big-game hunter who longs to take a shot at human beings, "the most dangerous" of all game "animals," it's been adapted every few years since Richard Connell's short story first appeared, back in 1924.
