Greenberg (Review)

Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller dare us to stare into an emotional abyss

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 23, 2010
As New Yorker Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller), recovering from a recent mental breakdown, settles into his new role in Los Angeles as his brother's house-sitter, Stiller as an actor takes us right up to the edge, jumps off and dares us to reach out to catch him before he plummets out of reach. It's a balls-out move, especially considering that his Greenberg is a loathsome person. Grade: A-.  

Fantastic Mr. Fox (Review)

Wes Anderson finds his forte with a new magical film

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 25, 2009
Wes Anderson is famous for his quirky sense of absurdist humor. Although he might argue against it, he seems to have finally found his forte: in animation, vis-a-vis Roald Dahl's 1970 children's book 'Fantastic Mr. Fox.' In Anderson's hands the story takes on a meta significance as a human-development coming-of-age story that applies across age groups, generations, social strata and even species. Grade: B.
