MOVIE REVIEW: Scarlett Johansson turns 'Lucy' into a tour de force

French director Luc Beeson crafts a good, tight story and Scarlett Johansson delivers one of her best performances in “Lucy.”

MOVIE REVIEW: 'Venus in Fur' not for everyone, but director Roman Polanski gets under your skin

On paper and at first glance, this movie – the third offbeat art-house release of the week - has very little going for it. It is an adaptation of another adaption that takes place at a single setting that is indoors and has just two performers who talk a lot. In French. Before you write it off entirely, note that it is directed by Roman Polanski, a man with a checkered past who, while having made a few bad movies, has never made a boring one and knows how to get under your skin quick.

Film Fans split on "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"

Daily Post Film Fans review the film “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”

DISC SPOTLIGHT: "Dom Hemingway"

Michael Clark spotlights the DVD/Blu-ray release of the film “Dom Hemingway.”

"Yves Saint Laurent" story wears thin

It would probably be safe to say that if Yves Saint Laurent was still alive and able to watch the movie about his life that bears his name, he wouldn’t be very pleased. Like a spurned ex-lover, the film has a big case of selective memory and most of it is unflattering.

"Wish I Was Here" delivers poignant story

While not quite as impressive as his debut (“Garden State”), director/co-writer/leading man Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here” is a poignant story that will connect with diverse audiences on multiple levels. It’s very good and not great because Braff takes more chances than he did with “Garden State” and on occasion he loses his focus and gets a tad too twee for his own good.
