Review: Judd Apatow, Pete Davidson Team On  "The King of Staten Island"
The protagonists in Judd Apatow movies don't generally have their stuff together. They are emotionally stunted, occasionally underachieving, unmotivated to change and often even border on unlikable.

"The Vast of Night," a micro-budget noir set in 1950s New Mexico, crackles with B-movie electricity. The film is one of those little miracles: a directorial debut, made for nothing, that establishes a young filmmaker of self-evident command. With atmosphere and cunning, director Andrew Patterson...

Review: Director Benjamin Ree's "The Painter and the Thief"
The documentary "The Painter and the Thief" has a few wrinkles to add to the old Picasso adage that great artists steal. "The Painter and the Thief," by Norwegian filmmaker Benjamin Ree, is about a Czech painter, Barbora Kysilkova, who has two of her paintings stolen from an Oslo gallery in April...
