An Ang Lee masterpiece

‘Life of Pi’ succeeds at every level

By Dave Taylor
Being stranded in the middle of an unforgiving ocean is a theme that’s been explored in films as diverse as Swiss Family Robinson and Hitchcock’s surprisingly tense Lifeboat. But being cast adrift for more than 200 days in a lifeboat with an adult Bengal tiger?

Emancipation examination

In the end, ‘Lincoln’ is more about an act than a man

By Ryan Syrek
A humble suggestion: Force the chittering, self-serving partisans in Washington who increasingly prefer filibusters over floor votes to watch Lincoln. Director Steven Spielberg’s latest provides a character sketch, not of its titular president, but of America’s political process.

Will the real Bond please stand up?

Daniel Craig finally nails spy’s character in ‘Skyfall’

No-town music

‘Detropia’ stylishly shows Detroit’s demise

By Ryan Syrek
At its worst, cinema verite is aimless pretense masquerading as artistic intent. At its best, it is Detropia, a documentary that adds soul to statistics, going inside the implosion of a once-proud city using a sprawling, haunting approach.

Partly sunny

‘Cloud Atlas’ sports foggy brilliance

By Ryan Syrek
To steal from Mother Goose (don’t worry, she’s dead): When Cloud Atlas is good, it’s very, very good; when it’s bad, Hugo Weaving is doing a drag impression of Nurse Ratched.

Being near Emma Watson

Just one of ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’

By Ryan Syrek
Reconciling the public’s fascination with Emma Watson’s blossoming sexuality with realizing that the first time she was on screen she was 11 years old is really difficult.

Take the psycho path

‘Seven Psychopaths’ is worth the risk

By Ryan Syrek
Guess what? You’re so not ready for Seven Psychopaths.

Object of my Affleck-tion

‘Argo’ proves Ben is the real deal

By Ryan Syrek
It’s easy to thrill people when they don’t know what’s coming. OK, maybe not easy — paging Mr. Shyamalan — but certainly less difficult than whipping up tension in a film based on a decades-old actual incident, the resolution of which is but a Google search away.
