The Illusionist
"The Illusionist" is a beautiful film, artfully designed to seduce lovers of period pieces and high fantasy. It's not particularly deep - nor is it necessarily all that brilliant. But, like any good conjurer's …

The Illusionist
Edward Norton has a habit of acting in movies with twists and turns. This latest flick from 2006 is no exception, and is probably his best role yet. Here, he plays the stage magician Eisenheim, a subtle, …

The Illusionist
Others have discussed the plot of the movie, so I won't bore you with minutia.    The Illusionist is an exquisite love story (a genre I'm not normally fond of) and supernatural mystery. …

The Black Dahlia (Widescreen Edition) (2006)
The Black Dahlia is an extremely disappointing movie. Adapted from the James Ellroy book of the same name, it uses a real life grisly murder in LA as the backdrop for what should have been a fine suspenseful, …

Steven Millhauser's brilliant little short story 'Eisenheim the Illusionist' is beautifully realized cinematically by Neil Burger who not only adapted the story as a screenplay but also directed with …

The Black Dahlia (Widescreen Edition) (2006)
Brian de Palma made an odd decision in creating this apparently very expensive, very strange and confusing version of a film, a movie less about the grisly/twisted unsolved murder (grossly illustrated …

The Illusionist
`The Illusionist' provides great, old-fashioned fun. Much like `The Prestige,' it is a magician's movie that requires the audience to keep their eyes on the subject. This time the titled `illusionist,' …

It's not easy being a teenager. Belonging or not belonging to a clique or gang can bring horrible expectations--ones that aren't easy to fulfill. Brendan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is an outsider, the way …

Brick
This movie was surprisingly good. It's not a movie I envision people running out to see in the theaters. It's the type of film that you'd catch on cable. The movie brings to life a genre which has all …
