The Onion arguably took the fall for our national misogyny. Maybe they really are the satire we need, rather than the kind we think want.

Review: Django Unchained (2012)

Quentin Tarantino arguably made Django Unchained because he wanted to try his hand at a Spaghetti Western, and that's basically what he has done. Alas, the film is little more than a genre exercise, with little more than the obvious role reversals to justify its artistic existence.

The harshest thing I can say about Tom Hooper's Les Misérables is that I can only imagine those who have not seen the original show wondering what the fuss has been all about.

Review: Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty Is a Powerful Tale of the Costs of 'Justifiable' Violence

Scott Mendelson | Posted 02.03.2013 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

Zero Dark Thirty is a fantastic achievement. It's powered by Jessica Chastain's terrific performance and absolutely becomes the definitive take on its subject. It's a cracking thriller, a mournful drama, and a thoughtful meditation on the costs of violence.

Review: Killing Them Softly

Scott Mendelson

Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly has, from a conversational standpoint, one of the finest screenplays of the last few years. It is a relatively low-key crime drama, filled with crusty character actors doing chewy character turns.

Review: Steven Spielberg's Lincoln Is Mostly Engrossing, Richly Moral Political Drama

Scott Mendelson | Posted 01.09.2013 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

As a look into how politics worked in the mid-1800s, and of course how it still works today, Lincoln is surprisingly funny and endlessly compelling. But the need to create a defining portrait of our sixteenth president creates both needlessly solemn subplots and some narrative repetition that prevents true greatness.
