Review: A Walk Among the Tombstones

posted: 09/19/2014 2:48 a.m. Discuss

Liam Neeson's late-career resurgence, began, I suppose, with the reprehensible Taken series and has sprung from there into the kind of auto-branding most stars get to enjoy in the prime of their youth.

Review: The Last of Robin Hood

posted: 09/19/2014 2:13 a.m. Discuss

The Last of Robin Hood opens in 1959 with the death of "the hero of a generation, equally known for his swashbuckling in public and in private," Errol Flynn at age 50. We quickly learn of the salacious details -- Flynn died in the arms of a "much younger girlfriend" -- via the device of a behatted radio reporter talking down his skinny microphone into his reel-to-reel tape recorder as he awaits the girl's imminent arrival at a Hollywood airport. As she disembarks, popping flash bulbs and probing questions cause the girl to swoon.

Toronto festival: The superlatives

Every year the Toronto International Film Festival packs 300 films into its highly compressed 10-day run in early September, and every year, no matter how many of these films you get to see -- and I knew a noncritic fan who claimed to have seen 30 in five days, which is pretty scary when you do the math -- you will always leave with the vague, unsettling feeling of still having missed a lot. It's like attending a fascinating lecture while suffering through a narcolepsy episode.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: My aunt says I'm running from God, but I don't agree. I'm just having a good time, and some day, if I feel like it, I'll turn to God. Why won't she stop bugging me, telling me I need Jesus and saying she's praying for me, and all that?
