I've come to admire people, and theater companies, that take the risk. You have to hand it to Elliott -- more than any other major off-Broadway theater company, The New Group consistently produces offbeat works.

Charles Karel Bouley

Thank the universe for the film Snowpiercer; finally, a dystopian sci-fi movie that someone can gush over, one that leaves a lasting effect and a certain dread in the viewer. Dread, because so much of it rings so true for today's times.

Week in Film: Begin Again, Whitey and More

Begin Again comes from writer-director John Carney, who burst forth with Once a few years ago. This film, which stars Keira Knightly and Mark Ruffalo (among others), captures the same blend of wistful emotions and life-affirming musical energy as that 2006 hit.

The much anticipated Rush, Ron Howard's first film since the embarrassing comedy The Dilemma (2011), shows a return to decent form, and again demonstrates why the former child actor remains one of Hollywood's most bankable directors.

With a $25 million budget that's probably less than what a Transformers sequel spends on fake sweat for Shia LaBeouf, Pain & Gain tells the true story of a trio of Miami weightlifters whose dreams of quick money turned into a crime spree.

Phantom is a submarine movie based on a set of true facts. It concerns the sinking of a Russian submarine and the suppositions about how it came to happen.

Phantom supposedly is based on actual events. But that doesn't lend it weight, authority or even a modicum of dramatic sense.
