Look, James Franco must be stopped.

Exploring legacy of experimental filmmaker Brakhage

Brakhage Symposium examines late filmmaker’s influence

By Jim Lillie
No one can say for sure what the late Stan Brakhage would think of the Brakhage Center Symposium — except that he would both hate and love it.

Faint pulse praise

'Warm Bodies' is a 'tweener

By Ryan Syrek
Warm is the ultimate ’tweener temperature. It’s not “hot” or “cold”; it rejects extreme or definitive categorization. It’s the thermometer equivalent of “meh.” So, it’s fitting that writer/director Jonathon Levine’s film sports the noncommittal word as the lead in its title. Warm Bodies is completely OK. It is resplendently fine. It is immeasurably pretty good. Sadly, it really hoped to be great.

Magnifying injustice

'The House I Live In' makes a compelling case to end the drug war

Hardly dying

‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ ignores every word in the title

By Ryan Syrek
A Good Day to Die Hard is not Die Hard; it’s also not good and mostly takes place at night. So really, the whole title is a lie.

Restless leg syndrome

'Side Effects' will have you twitching with anxiety

By Ryan Syrek
Like Frankenstein’s monster or fans of Two Broke Girls, this film shouldn’t exist and definitely shouldn’t work. And yet, it does. Boy howdy, does it ever.

The original crazy drummer

'Beware of Mr. Baker' explores one of rock’s most interesting personalities

By David Accomazzo
A virtuoso on the kit, Baker was an absolute mess of a man, running through and neglecting multiple wives and children as he compulsively tore through life.

Only kinda good, fellas

'Gangster Squad' talks the talk, walks crooked

By Ryan Syrek
Nothing brings back memories of Sean Penn’s history as a serial domestic abuser like watching him revel in a man being drawn-and-quartered by automobiles. What a weird choice to take a cheesy, scene-chewing, 1940s mob-boss role at this point in his career.

BW BIFF Picks 2013: 'Trash Dance'

By Joel Dyer
On some level, Allison Orr is either an idealist or a masochist. She has the audacity to believe that art can transform lives by allowing individuals to show their true selves to complete strangers by communicating through the common language of art.

BW BIFF Picks 2013: 'Seeking Asian Female'

By Steve Weishampel
Despite opening with interviews of white men looking for Asian women, Seeking Asian Female is about one white man, one Asian woman and one documentarian.
