    “Lucy,” French writer-director Luc Besson’s latest cinematic mind-job, mashes up the rainbow hues and superwoman savior concept from his ridiculously entertaining “The Fifth Element” and the blood-pumping car chases and shoot-ups from his crazily stylish “Transporter,” then adds hefty doses of “The Matrix”-style high-concept sci-fi musings.

    For “Wish I Was Here,” Zach Braff’s follow-up to his 2004 indie hit “Garden State,” the amiable actor, director and co-writer launched a controversial crowd-sourcing campaign through Kickstarter to finance a portion of his $5.5 million budget. The unorthodox arrangement, Braff insisted, allowed him to avoid studio meddling and to retain full artistic control over his highly personal project. It also enabled Braff to produce a film that, while touching and appealingly quirky, would have benefited from a little judicious editing.

  • Movie Review: “Snowpiercer”

    Published: Fri, Jul 4, 2014

    In different hands, “Snowpiercer” might have been just another generic action movie. Yet with South Korean director Bong Joon-ho at the helm, it’s something more off-kilter and more disturbingly satisfying. Set in the near future after an attempt to reverse global warming has gone horribly awry and plunged the world into a deep freeze, it takes place entirely aboard a climate-controlled, technically advanced train that endlessly circumnavigates Earth. Exactly how the train has an infinite supply of energy is never quite explained, but that’s part of the film’s mysterious charm. The passengers are all that’s left of humanity, and they’ve brought with them the same emotional and social baggage that weighed them
