Link of the Day: CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY


I've got a new review up of Michael Moore's latest (and maybe final?) documentary, Capitalism: A Love Story, over at In Review Online. Next up: a much more Brechtian indictment of evil American institutions, Lars Von Trier's Manderlay.

Links of the Day: AFTERSCHOOL and THE BOYS ARE BACK


One's a chilly autopsy of our digital media-obsessed age. The other's a warm and fuzzy Rites of Passage picture. Both are now playing in select theaters. Neither are earning big ups from yours truly.

Nearly two years after its hotly debated debut at Sundance '08, Antonio Campos's Afterschool is finally getting a proper U.S. run. I caught it last November in Paris. The review I wrote, freshly starred for your at-a-glance satisfaction, has found a home over at In Review Online. While there, take a gander at my thoughts on Shine director Scott Hick's new weepie The Boys Are Back.
