RogerEbert Headlines
This was the last movie review Roger Ebert filed. by Roger Ebert Released less than two years after his "The Tree of Life," an epic that began with the dinosaurs and peered into an uncertain future, Terrence Malick's "To the Wonder" is a film that contains only a handful of important characters and a few crucial moments in their lives. Although it uses dialogue, it's dreamy and half-heard, and essentially this could be a silent film — silent, except for its mostly melancholy music.RogerEbert Headlines
by Richard Roeper We begin the movie by following a tattoo-spangled man as he makes his way through a carnival crowd, arriving in a tent containing a few hundred cheering fans and a globe-shaped metal cage. This audacious, extended tracking shot will be familiar to fans of Martin Scorsese (and before that, Orson Welles), and it immediately tells us we are about to experience of film of considerable ambition. You don't even try to make a play like that unless you have confidence in your creative arsenal.RogerEbert Headlines
by Richard Roeper For some 30 years now, small clusters of movie teenagers have made the journey to various cabins in various woods. The return ratio for such trips is one surviving, bloodied, traumatized, hospitalized teenager for every 10 dead friends left behind. And the ratio of entertaining, original movies about attractive young people and the hideous monsters that stalk them is about the same. For every clever remake or freshly twisted spin, there are innumerable gore fests with nothing original to say.RogerEbert Headlines
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky "Trance", Danny Boyle's new thriller, is slick, silly, and frequently very entertaining. Its vibe is twisty and pulpy. Its style is candy-colored visual escapism — every shot hyped up for maximum pop. Viewers who get hung up on story logic — or prefer movies that feature at least one sympathetic character — will spend much of "Trance"'s 101 minutes gritting their teeth.RogerEbert Headlines
"Upstream Color" (NR, 96 minutes). 'Upstream Color," Shane Carruth's follow-up to "Primer," is every bit as good as its predecessor. The protagonists, a young couple played by Carruth and Amy Seimetz, are connected by a singular, mysterious experience. The experience in question, a strange form of hypnosis caused by body-snatching maggots, leaves them alienated from everyone around them. Being consistently thrown off-balance by a narrative that doesn't even ultimately reveal what happens during its many elisions can be frustrating. But the best thing about 'Upstream Color' is seeing that Carruth is still capable of being intelligently suggestive without being obtuse or frustratingly vague." Three and a half starsRogerEbert Headlines
by Jim Emerson What is "Room 237" really about? On the surface, Rodney Ascher's documentary exhibits the theories a few obsessive fans have put forward to reveal what they think Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" is really about. According to them, Kubrick stashed "hidden meanings" in the vacancies, hallways, ballrooms, bathrooms, walk-in storage areas and hedge-mazes of the Overlook Hotel in his 1980 horror film.RogerEbert Headlines
by Nell Minow Back in 1993, what was astonishing in "Jurassic Park" were the special effects that seemed to bring dinosaurs back to life. Two decades later, rediscovering Steven Spielberg's mastery of cinematic storytelling is the best reason to go see it again.RogerEbert Headlines
by Simon Abrams "Simon Killer," a maddeningly short-sighted character study about a disturbed young American in Paris, is consistently unsettling, but not always for the right reasons. Writer-director Antonio Campos ("Afterschool") takes great pains to establish his antihero protagonist, Simon (Brady Corbet), as a voyeur with a very limited field of vision. The film's rocky first half hour establishes Simon as a socially awkward, self-involved character with a myopic worldview.RogerEbert Headlines
by Richard Roeper Seeing as how "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is a live-action cartoon, I wish we could have seen thought balloons above the heads of Channing Tatum, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Bruce Willis, among others, as they filmed this ridiculous and overblown debacle.RogerEbert Headlines
"The Host" (PG-13). Based on a new novel by Stephane Meyer, author of the Twilight saga, about a time in the not-distant future when human minds have been colonized by an alien race called "souls." Stephane Meyer stars as a human whose original mind has somehow survived and co-occupies the space with a soul mind; their converesations can be intriguing ("No Melanie! Wrong! No! He's from another planet!"). With William Hurt, Diane Kruehe, Grancis Fisher and okeem Wodbnine. Two and a half starsRogerEbert Headlines
"Tyler Perry's Temptation" (PG-13. 111 minutes). Tyler Perry's drama of a young woman tempted to stray from her safe marriage by a rich and handsome stranger is actually funnier than most straightforward comedies. One star.RogerEbert Headlines
by Simon Abrams American filmmaker Derek Cianfrance takes on too much at all at once in "The Place Beyond the Pines," an over-stuffed, hyper-pulpy, and mostly trite trifurcated drama about family, crime, and moral ambiguity. Cianfrance's film, his follow-up to the similarly lop-sided, but otherwise superior "Blue Valentine," follows four men: a daredevil motorcyclist who becomes a bank robber, a mealy-mouthed smalltown cop who's not the hero his peers think he is, and their respective sons.RogerEbert Headlines
"Starbuck" (Rated R, 108 minutes). Starbuck is one of those high-concept yet formulaic, sitcom-like comedies that gets by on charm and speed. It is manipulative and ingratiating but totally worth your time if you manage to pass one crucial test: Does French-Canadian actor Patrick Huard's smile make you happy? For me, it does. Mash up Francois Truffaut, Daniel Auteuil and Judd Nelson, and you get Huard's homely/handsome/comical face. It's those kind Truffaut eyes, radiating warmth and passionate concern, that sell this movie's humanist spirit, despite its lack of bite or great surprises. Two and a half starsRogerEbert Headlines
by Nell Minow What if the Supremes had been born Down Under? A very conventional story of a '60s Australian girl group gains extra power from its context and setting in this fact-based story set to the beat of Motown soul.RogerEbert Headlines
"From Up on Poppy Hill" (PG, 91 minutes). This was a day I didn't see coming. The new film from Japan's Studio Ghibli is a disappointment. Gore Miyazaki's first collaboration with his father centers on two likable and perfectly straightforward college students, who so nothing very extraordinary and are in a romance that remains platonic. The story involves a campaign to rescue the Latin Quarter, center of student amitosis and bohemian life, from razing to make room for the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics. Some romantic suspense, a few ploy twists, mostly weak tea. Two and a half stars.RogerEbert Headlines
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky "Wrong" is a surreal shaggy dog story about a loser who wakes up one morning to find that his beloved pooch has disappeared. Composed of skit-like scenes and populated by gimmicky characters, the movie is flimsy, glib, and occasionally pretty funny.RogerEbert Headlines
by Richard Roeper Just about everyone in "Gimme the Loot" seems to be yelling, even when they're just talking. Maybe that's because you have to raise your voice to make it heard above the constant din of life in New York City. If you don't speak up and make your mark, you'll be swallowed up and lost in the vast massive noise of it all.RogerEbert Headlines
"The Iran Job" (Unrated, 91 minutes). An Iranian basketball team with designs on the playoffs hires African-American basketball player Kevin Sheppard to play for them. "The Iran Job" covers this territory, complete with real life game situations that mirror the best sports movie clichés, but it also takes more interest in viewing Iran through the eyes of two Iranian women Sheppard befriends. There is much to be found in both halves of this documentary, but I found myself on the fence when trying to reconcile them. I was pumped up for one, introspective for the other. Couple that with some sloppy work by the filmmakers, and I have to come down on the not recommended side of the fence. -- OH Two and a half stars.RogerEbert Headlines
by Richard Roeper Has Tiny Fey ever played a character we weren't rooting for? In smart features such as “Mean Girls,” “Baby Mama” and “Date Night,” on the just-completed NBC series “30 Rock,” on “Saturday Night Live” and in her book “Bossypants” or even co-hosting the Golden Globes, Fey's either likable or lovable. We're on her side, through all her pratfalls and fashion faux pas and quick, self-deprecating quips.RogerEbert Headlines
by Nell Minow At least in some respects all children are Neanderthals. It is the grand challenge of parenthood to civilize these sometimes savage little creatures by teaching them language, manners and safety. Some of the most difficult choices parents must make come when we try to encourage children to be strong, brave, independent and adventuresome when it comes to accomplishing goals in school, sports and chores while protecting them from mistakes that could be hurtful or even devastating.RogerEbert Headlines
by Roger Ebert Phil Spector remains an enigma after his 2009 conviction for the death of actress Lana Clarkson six years earlier. He's in prison today. Clarkson, dead of a gunshot wound, was found in his mansion. Was it suicide, an accident or murder?RogerEbert Headlines
by Richard Roeper A candy-colored fever dream is the most unforgettable movie of the year so far. Yes, I'm talking about "Spring Breakers," that movie where those former Disney stars spend every waking moment on the verge of bursting out of their bikinis and short-shorts as they gyrate their way through a week of drinking, snorting, sniffing, tonguing, robbing, laughing and sometimes crying in St. Petersburg, trying to create the all-time memorable experience before they have to return to their drab lives in Kentucky.RogerEbert Headlines
by Bill Zwecker It's almost a given that the White House is the most secure place in the nation — possibly in the world. So when a North Korean terrorist plot can be executed with frightening precision — circumventing the seemingly impenetrable defenses surrounding the U.S. president and everyone around him — it boggles the mind.RogerEbert Headlines
"Ginger and Rosa" (P-13, 89 minutes). Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) grow up in a London of brown weary shortages of food, living space and cheer. Who could have guessed Swinging London and the Beatles were on the way? Ginger becomes completely swept up in the Ban the Bomb movement's marches and in her youthful fatalism that becomes convinced the earth is on the brink of nuclear annihilation. With Alessandro Nivola as Ginger's dad, Hendricks as her mom, Annette Bening as a leftist friend, and Timothy Spall and Oliver Platt as a friendly avuncular couple. Written and directed by Sally Potter ("Yes," "Tango Lesson"). Three starsRogerEbert Headlines
"The Angel's Share" (Unrated, 101 minutes) "The Angel's Share" finds director Ken Loach doing as he's done for 45 years, filming mercurial human beings like a wildlife cinematographer, tracking their spontaneous behavior from afar, through an extreme telephoto lens mounted on a loose tripod head. He didn't invent the technique. It goes at least as far back as Akira Kurosawa's rain storm battle in Seven Samurai. And Loach doesn't even claim credit for originating the British flavor of that style: He says one of his earliest cinematographers, fellow improvisatory genius Chris Menges, copped it from the Czech cameraman Miroslav Ondricek ("If ..."). Yet there is no mistaking when Loach employs it, no matter the decade, the setting, the actors or who's manning the camera. -- SB Three and a half starsRogerEbert Headlines

The grille of the Cadillac Elmiraj concept car as the vehicle is displayed during the press preview day of the North American International Auto Show in DetroitU.S. car giant General Motors Corp (GM) plans to invest $12 billion in China from 2014 to 2017 and build more plants next year as it competes with aggressive rivals in the world's largest auto market. GM expects its China sales to expand 8-10 percent this year, in line with the overall growth of the Chinese market, where foreign firms, such as Volkswagen AG , and domestic players like SAIC Motor Corp vie for more market share. In total we are investing $12 billion between 2014 and 2017," Matt Tsien, president of GM China, said at the Auto China show in Beijing. GM plans to build five more plants in China next year, as part of its efforts to ramp up manufacturing capacity there by 65 percent by 2020, executives said on Sunday.

A TransCanada Keystone Pipeline pump station operates outside Steele City, NebraskaBy Jeff Mason and Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama's liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project's effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada's oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012, to sit out the November 4 congressional elections. The State Department's announcement on Friday that it would give government agencies more time to study the project was seen by strategists from both parties as a move to prevent that and boost Obama in the eyes of his supporters.

The Pfizer logo is seen next to a U.S. flag in a conference room at their world headquarters in New YorkU.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has approached British rival AstraZeneca to propose a 60 billion pound ($101 billion) takeover, Britain's Sunday Times reported. The paper cited senior investment bankers and industry sources saying that informal conversations about a deal had taken place between the two but that no talks were currently under way after AstraZeneca resisted the approach. Pfizer and AstraZeneca both declined to comment on the report to Reuters. AstraZeneca, Britain's second-biggest pharmaceuticals group, has been frequently touted as a potential takeover target as it wrestles with patents expiring on a number of best-selling drugs, leaving future growth uncertain.

Rousseff looks on during the inauguration ceremony for the South Pier of the Juscelino Kubitschek International Airport in BrasiliaBrazil´s President Dilma Rousseff must assume her share of responsibility for the controversial purchase of a refinery in Texas by Petroleo Brasileiro SA, the former chief executive of the state-run oil company said in an interview published on Sunday. Rousseff chaired the board of Petrobras in 2006 when it approved the purchase of Pasadena Refining System Inc, near Houston. Its high cost and losses later incurred at the refinery have put Petrobras at the center of a growing political scandal that began with bribery accusations and was fanned by the arrest of a former director in connection with a money-laundering case. The fall-out could complicate a re-election bid in October by Rousseff, who has said she was not informed of two clauses in the refinery contract that made it an onerous deal for Petrobras.

Visitors look at an Audi S8 car at Auto China 2014 in BeijingBy Edward Taylor and Jan Schwartz BEIJING (Reuters) - Strong demand for new automobiles in China has laid the foundations for the next leg of business for carmakers BMW , Audi and Mercedes-Benz: the second-hand premium car market. China's auto market is the world's biggest and is set to grow between 8 percent and 10 percent this year, fuelled by increasingly affluent buyers, who use them for the daily commute, with some opting for luxury brands as a status symbol. We have 290 dealers who offer certified pre-owned Audis," Rupert Stadler, chief executive of Volkswagen's premium brand, Audi, said during the Auto China show in Beijing. "In China, we have some dealers that sell between 1,500 and 3,000 cars." Audi, which expects China to contribute 40 percent of its sales by 2020, plans to train 40,000 to 50,000 new sales staff a year by 2017 to meet growing demand for brand-new and used cars, he said.

After nearly two decades of frenzied growth driven mainly by the very wealthy, China's auto market is maturing, yet remains ferociously competitive with manufacturers having to react quickly to shifting consumer trends. People like Zhou Wenxi, a 32-year-old Shanghai cram-school owner, and Guo Yetao, 23, a software salesman from Hangzhou, are fuelling two trends: hot demand for smaller crossover sport utility vehicles like Ford Motor Co's EcoSport; There is a potential "seismic shift" in the influence these young urban professionals will have on China's auto market, says Yale Zhang, head of Automotive Foresight, a Shanghai-based consultant.

Wie had six birdies, and not even a three-putt bogey at the final hole at her home course, Ko Olina, could dim her joy at her third career LPGA crown. Wie's other two LPGA titles also came in North America, at the 2009 Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico and at Canadian Women's Open in August of 2010 -- but she had never before won on US soil.

    NBA: Playoffs-Brooklyn Nets at Toronto RaptorsBy Steve Keating TORONTO (Reuters) - Sparked by a stinging expletive the NBA playoffs got off to an explosive start as the Brooklyn Nets landed the first blow in a suddenly bitter Eastern Conference first round match-up with a 94-87 win over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday. Out of the playoffs since 2008, Toronto's return to the postseason was both eventful and controversial, upping the ante in the best-of-seven series. With A list celebrities, including rappers Drake, Jay-Z and Beyonce, occupying courtside seats, an embarrassing technical malfunction and a jaw-dropping expletive delivered by Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri to thousands of frenzied supporters at a pre-game pep rally, the first game of the NBA postseason offered a little bit over everything. A super-charged atmosphere greeted players and fans after allegations that the experienced Nets had tanked their final few regular season games to get a preferred match-up with the youthful Raptors rather than face the Chicago Bulls.
