Paul Bettany

Live from the Toronto Film Festival: Tuesday, Sept. 9

Marshall Fine | Posted 09.09.2014 | Entertainment

Which is what I value most about the film festival experience in general: the chance it offers to discover a film, a filmmaker, an actor -- the operative word being discover. That's less and less of a factor at this particular festival these days. Instead, it seems stacked with pre-sold titles.

Transcendence looks snazzy, but upon closer examination you realize it's nothing more than a polished simulacrum of other, more accomplished films.

HuffPost Review: The Tourist

Marshall Fine | Posted 05.25.2011 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

The Tourist is more like steerage than coach, a tarted-up piece of product that's flat and witless. Hopefully, Henckel von Donnersmarck will go back to making his own films and put Hollywood in his rearview mirror.

Darwin, Creationism, and Creation

Creation is important because it shows Darwin as a thoughtful man, filled with compassion and fears over the implications, as well as the reception, of his revolutionary ideas.

In the end, Legion is a cheap B-horror thriller with the requisite religious overtones. Whatever it lacks in production values, it makes up for with solid acting by a better than expected cast.
