I love movies. They inform my view of the world, capture my imaginations. Foreign and independent films are particularly wonderful because of the intimate stories they tell -- from the heartbreaking and eccentric characters who live and breathe in our imaginations to the innovative filmmaking often absent from big studio productions. On this site, I review the best new film releases from around the world, plus noteworthy DVDs, film festival news, and more.
