Hunger Is No Game

We let people in this country go hungry. That’s the take home message of A Place at the Table, the new documentary from directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush. It is a staggering and completely honest statement. See, if the problem were a food shortage, nobody could make such an accusation; but this isn’t supply and demand. We have plenty of food in America, and yet we let millions and millions of citizens,...

I Got Beauty in My Eye!

The first film festival I attended was in Carbondale, Illinois. The field included entries from students from across the country; my 21-year-old mind was ready to be an absorbant paper towel, sponging up art like a movie-loving “quicker-picker-upper.” What I quickly discovered was that there’s a very fine line between “artistic expression” and “intellectual masturbation” and that some of the smartest people can be...

Tom Cruise’s Drone Policy

If you conceived a child back when Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch, it would now be old enough to tell you to move on.

The Martian

An ode to ingenuity and duct tape.


Pawn Sacrifice

A profile of a mentally ill genius chess player who briefly fought the Cold War alone.


Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

After a somewhat quiet first film, this second adaptation of the postapocalyptic young adult novels goes bonkers.

The Look of Silence

A companion piece to The Act of Killing, this makes a one-two punch as good as any documentary in history.


The Visit

A middling found footage horror-comedy that counts as a triumph for this director.


The Stanford Prison Experiment

A recreation of the actual experiment that chills but has little new to say.


Reader Recommends

On DVD: Mad Max: Fury Road

It's basically "Smash the Patriarchy: The Movie" with really awesome cars.


No Escape

Don't go to Malaysia. You'll probably die.
