"Night Moves": Activists Plot Against a Bridge, Each Other

Director Kelly Reichardt and writing partner Jon Raymond expand their singularly spartan field guide to off-the-grid Oregonians. Here Reichardt, the maker of Meek's Cutoff and Wendy and Lucy, applies her characteristically laconic style to an ostensibly conventional movie plot about…

Film, "The Double": Jesse Eisenberg Is a Pale Imitation of Jesse Eisenberg

"The Double": Jesse Eisenberg Is a Pale Imitation of Jesse Eisenberg

Dostoyevsky's novella becomes a black comedy with Jesse Eisenberg as a timid office drone taunted by his cocky lookalike. That makes three doppelgänger films in as many months, which probably says something about how virtual life has left us feeling…

Food-and-drink franchises at airports amaze me. Where else (except for the movies) will I gladly fork over ridiculous sums of money for a soft pretzel and a soda? I seem to have no problem buying a sub-par $18 lunch from…

Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari Talk About Their Film 30 Minutes or Less

We had less than 10 minutes to ask Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari about 30 Minutes or Less. Their new film, which opens Aug. 12, is an absurd comedy in which a pizza delivery dude (Eisenberg) and an elementary school…

Holy Rollers

Inspired by a drug ring that used Hasidic Jews to transport over one million pills of Ecstasy to the United States in a six-month period between 1998 and '99, Kevin Asch's Holy Rollers stars Jesse Eisenberg as a good old…

Calendar, Night&Day <i>Zombieland</i>

Zombieland

The zombie movie—that evergreen vessel for all manner of social and political allegory—gets stripped down to its “Holy shit! Zombies! Run!” chassis in this fitfully amusing romp directed with little ambition and even less distinction by first-timer Ruben Fleischer. Set…
