Tortured Sounds of Silence

Tortured Sounds of Silence

Martin Scorsese's Silence, or, How to Torture a Jesuit Priest Until He Says "Ah, Screw It!" and Looks for Another Gig, is the auteur's most inconsistent offering since his misguided and sloppy Casino.

You Can Be Heroes

The latest collaboration between director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg, Patriots Day, stands as not only a valuable tribute to the victims and heroes of the Boston Marathon bombings, but a solid, meaningful, gritty look at what it took to take down the Tsarnaev brothers.

Keeping It Reel

So, this wasn't the worst movie year ever, but it wasn't a particularly great one, either.

Slightly Off Base

Fences is very much a well renowned and well-rewarded play. As a movie, well, it still feels like a play.

Rogue Won

There was a time when we had to wait many years for our Star Wars fixes. In this, the New Age of Total Impatience, we get Star Wars every year. The New Age of Total Impatience most certainly has its perks.

No-Hate Musical

La La Land is an original musical masterpiece heading for Oscar glory

Dark-Hearted Heart

A jilted husband uses the power of the pen to mess with his ex-wife's mind in Nocturnal Animals, the engaging and dark-hearted latest from director Tom Ford.

Loving Loving

As for the movie, Loving will stand as not only one of 2016's best, but undoubtedly as one of its most important.

Beast of Burden

See Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them knowing that 1) Things will probably get more exciting in future chapters and 2) Nifflers aren't half as interesting as Hippogriffs.

Zen Invasion

Arrival is a movie that gives itself time to breathe, and while it does have a few action scenes, it's, for the most part, intellectual fare.

Cinema Q&A: Director Alex Cox

Cox talks about Tombstone Rashomon, premiering this week at the Loft Film Fest

Full-Blown War

Mel Gibson is back in the director’s chair with Hacksaw Ridge, a bloody but conscientiously good WWII pic

Roll 'Em!

The Loft will be showing 40 films between Wednesday, Nov. 9, and Sunday, Nov. 13, when retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly will be on hand to close out the festival with the screening and discussion of The Martian.

When It’s Good To Be Bad

The film itself is easily the worst of the series, a series that was already pretty terrible.

Sequel Redemption

This is so much better than the first movie.

Celluloid Celebration

Tucson, there's another Film Festival coming your way Oct. 20-23.
