Spencer lends a dose of humanity to campy revenge fantasy

Teenage brains. Alcohol. Driver’s licenses. Put them together and what you get, inevitably, are a whole bunch of bad decisions — in real life and in movies. It’s not a new lesson, but it’s the most coherent one in “Ma,” a middling high school horror revenge fantasy (if that’s a ...

Henson, Rockwell bring sensitivity to true-life tale of racism of 1960s

If you didn’t know that “The Best of Enemies” was based on a true story, you’d likely find the premise preposterous, and for a movie, probably ill-advised: A lowbrow Klan leader in North Carolina and a black single mom/community activist are forced into dialogue and become lifelong ...

‘The Beach Bum’ offers symphony of debauchery

Matthew McConaughey is at his dirt bag finest as a good-time Charlie stoner-poet named Moondog in Harmony Korine’s “The Beach Bum,” a bizarre and transfixing carnival of vulgarity and vice. In some ways it’s the part he was born to play. Whether or not that’s a good thing for him, ...
