RogerEbert.com — Kill Your Darlings

Kill Your Darlings Movie Review“Kill Your Darlings” plays like a sort of Muppet Babies version of the Beat Poets. The self-serious way these figures regard themselves—and the self-serious way the film regards them—is cringe-inducing, early and often. My RogerEbert.com review.

RogerEbert.com — The Fifth Estate

The Fifth Estate Movie ReviewFor a movie about a larger-than-life personality who shook up the world with his brazenness—and since has had to seek political asylum because of it—”The Fifth Estate” feels unfortunately small and safe. My two-star review of the Julian Assange story for RogerEbert.com.

RogerEbert.com — CBGB

CBGB Movie Review“CBGB,” about the birth of the legendary New York City music venue and the punk scene it launched in the 1970s, doesn’t even begin to capture the energy or the brashness of the pop-culture phenomenon it depicts. Too often, it feels like a distracting and inauthentic game of dress-up. My RogerEbert.com review.

Running Wild: The Life of Dayton O. Hyde Movie ReviewDayton O. Hyde has accomplished so much and enjoyed such a wide range of experiences over his 88 years, it’s as if he’s lived several lives. But “Running Wild” is a rather ordinary documentary about this extraordinary man. My RogerEbert.com review.

RogerEbert.com — Baggage Claim

Baggage Claim Movie Review“Baggage Claim” is so archaic in its depiction of feminine self-worth—and, frankly, so insulting—it’s amazing that it’s coming out in 2013, not 1963. My RogerEbert.com review.

RogerEbert.com — Wedding Palace

Wedding Palace Movie Review“Wedding Palace” bills itself as the first Asian-American romantic comedy, but it’s chock full of all the same cliches and conventions you’d see in any film of the genre. My RogerEbert.com review.

RogerEbert.com — A Single Shot

A Single Shot Movie ReviewThe backwoods neo-noir “A Single Shot” is an odd mix of beautifully bleak atmosphere and hammily mannered performances, which makes it simultaneously understated and overpowering. But it’s always good to see Sam Rockwell. My review for RogerEbert.com.

RogerEbert.com — After Tiller

After Tiller Movie ReviewThe documentary “After Tiller” takes the politically divisive, emotionally charged issue of late-term abortions and portrays it with grace, understatement and humanity. It is sure to piss people off. My review for RogerEbert.com.
