"Don Jon": A Film About a Jersey Meathead Watching Porn is Not Uncharming

In Joseph Gordon-Levitt's debut as a writer-director, he plays, to the hilt, a working-class Italian-American New Jerseyan, dutiful frequenter of church, the gym, douchey nightclubs, his parents' dining room (where Pa Tony Danza wears an apparently influential wifebeater), and countless…

Franco Goes Hollyweird

James Franco isn’t just a live-wire actor and a certified hunk; he’s also a helluva good sport. Rather than parlaying his role in the Spider-Man flicks into pretty-boy parts in Hollywood pabulum, the Palo Alto native has played goofy in…

Savage Grace

Designed more for train-wreck gawkery than psychological illumination, Tom Kalin’s garish melodrama applies icehouse style to hothouse material: the 1972 murder of socialite Barbara Daly Baekeland, former wife of the heir to the Bakelite fortune, by the grown son she’d…

Film, Moore,  and Less

Moore, and Less
