Martin Scorsese said it was a big influence on his films "Taxi Driver" and "Raging Bull." George Romero, director of the seminal zombie thriller "Night of the Living Dead," said it was the reason he became a filmmaker.
This city's hunger for fine pastrami and corned beef is apparently equaled by its appetite for an entertaining documentary about the world of Jewish delicatessens. "Deli Man," directed by Erik Greenberg Anjou, is not only holding over at Laemmle's Royal in West Los Angeles and the Town Center 5...

There's no shortage of ways that Neill Blomkamp’s science-fiction robot story “Chappie” goes off the rails. The movie is a retread of so many bots-gone-wild/bots-still-cute movies, and the way Blomkamp and longtime screenwriting collaborator Terri Tatchell fill out the story...
Though it was never in line to be a big weekend at the box office, things may turn out to be even slower than expected.
Patricia Morison, who is celebrating her 100th birthday on March 19, appeared in movies with such legends as Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, originated the role of the ultimate diva in the 1948 Cole Porter Broadway musical "Kiss Me, Kate" and had a memorable encounter with Yul Brynner when...
Three great musicals from 1953 have just made their Blu-ray debuts — "Kiss Me Kate," "The Band Wagon" and "Calamity Jane." Warner Home Entertainment is offering the newly restored "Kiss Me Kate," starring Kathryn Grayson, Howard Keel, Ann Miller and a young Bob Fosse, in its original...
He's "that guy" — the chest-baring club owner in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights," the undercover DEA agent in Steven Soderbergh's "Traffic," the recovering thug in Peter Segal's "Anger Management." Luis Guzmán, who has appeared in more than 70 films, is adding another...
No sirens were blaring. No guns were drawn. Nobody was screaming or shouting.
Well before he left home at 17 to join a carnival, James Randi knew that magic was his calling. It became his moral cause too: After pulling off his own shtick as a "mind reader," the Amazing Randi set out to expose how various brands of spiritualism are built on subterfuge and cheap tricks.
In the grimly involving "These Final Hours," the fiery effects of a crash-landed asteroid are wiping out the planet and heading for their last devastating stop: Australia. And there's nothing anyone in the coastal city of Perth, where the film is vividly set, can do but wait. Oh, and go...
Attempting to capture the screwball essence of the old-school suspense-comedy, most blatantly Woody Allen's "Manhattan Murder Mystery," Lawrence Michael Levine's flighty "Wild Canaries" lacks the filmmaking discipline required to pay effective homage.
The setting is striking, the cast impressive. But "Two Men in Town," a drama that's built on dread and circles the question of redemption for a newly released prisoner, falls short of the mythic territory it aspires to.
The piece of business that's most unfinished in the desperate comedy "Unfinished Business" is the wan hodgepodge of a script by Steve Conrad, a talented screenwriter ("The Promotion," "The Pursuit of Happyness") who should've known better. It's remarkable to think star Vince Vaughn, helmer...
