The magical, lonely love of 'Her'
How essential are physical and emotional connections when falling in love? What would you miss -- looking into someone's eyes, caressing them, tasting them?
'Closed Circuit,' a post-privacy thriller
We're all being watched. All the time. That's a key message of "Closed Circuit," an entertaining and well-crafted if not overly heart-stopping British conspiracy thriller starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall. Security cameras are everywhere, giving us birds-eye glimpses of each character, and reminding us that we, too, are never really alone.
Diana aims for competence
Tina Brown's witty, gossipy and perceptive "The Diana Chronicles" is one of the best books to consult if you want to make sense of the complicated life and tragic end of the Princess of Wales. German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel's biopic "Diana" takes the basic facts of the British royal's post-divorce years, puts them through the dry-cleaner and then whips them on the washing stone to make sure that no blemishes or stains survive.
'Gravity,' 90 minutes of terrifying beauty
In an age when we're able to consume content so many different ways let's declare right now that there's only one truly correct way to experience "Gravity," Alfonso Cuaron's thrilling new space film.
The Chinese pursuit of the American Dream
Hong Kong director Peter Ho-Sun Chan's (陳可辛) most Chinese-style film, "American Dreams in China" (海闊天空), centers on the lives of three people; Cheng Dongqing, Meng Xiaojun and Wang Yang, who come from different backgrounds but have one thing in common -- the dream of getting a visa to the U.S. and living out their American dreams.
Not so 'Blind Detective'
Mingling elements of crime, drama, comedy, romance and gastronomy, Hong Kong director Johnnie To's (杜琪峯) new film, "Blind Detective" (盲探), gives away a strong HK flavor with a high dose of slapstick humor. Starring veteran actors and actresses, including Andy Lau (劉德華) and Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文), the mixed-genre movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival's midnight sidebar last May.
Where romance meets reality
Those who watched Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise" (1995) and "Before Sunset" (2004) would not want to miss "Before Midnight" to complete the trilogy of romance. However, the charm of romance has transformed to overwhelming reality in the third installment.
When life starts showing side effects
An intriguing movie always gives more than it at first appears to. Steven Soderbergh's latest thriller, "Side Effects," revolves around depression, murder, medical ethics and deception, connecting the dots in ways audiences can hardly foresee. And it is most likely to leave viewers thinking it over after the movie ends, and probably plants some side effects for future reference.
'Christmas Rose' case closed
Charlie Young's (楊采妮) "Christmas Rose" stands before the audience's judgment with her directorial debut in this courtroom drama. Approaching the cinematic front from the director's seat as opposed to her usual role as an actress, Young presents her own script for the movie, which won substantial funding from the Asia Film Financing Forum.
All sparkle, no soul in ' Great Gatsby'
If any piece of classic American literature should be depicted on film with wildly decadent and boldly inventive style, it's "The Great Gatsby." After all, who was the character of Jay Gatsby himself if not a spinner of grandiose tales and a peddler of lavish dreams?
