  • It's the film you need to see in order to understand why the ending of "As Good As It Gets" was phony. show more

  • Living Out Loud is not a monumental motion picture. In fact, in many ways, it's quite the opposite - a quiet, unassuming story of friendship and love that uses richly-developed characters to charm its audience. show more

  • LaGravenese may be unsteady at the helm, but his film insinuates like a torch song that keeps messing with your head. show more
